Map of every KFC restaurant in the UK
Following on from my article showing how to create a map of every McDonalds restaurant in the UK I thought that I would do the same with KFC restaurants. The result of my findings is shown in the map below, which shows all 845 KFC restaurants in the UK.
The data used in the map was extracted from the official KFC restaurant locator, and as with similar maps, it offers a fascinating overview of correlation between KFC restaurants and population density.
If you'd like to create your own map, or do something entirely different with the data, then I have listed below links to the Python script and its ouput. I used this method previously to extract the data from KFC's restaurant locator and then paste it into the CSV format, along with a link to the resulting CSV data.
- Python script to automate the downloading and parsing of the most recent KFC's restaurant data.
- Uploaded the resulting CSV of the KFC's restaurant data to Pastebin.
The CSV produced by the python script contains the following data about each restaurant...
- Store Name
- Postal Code
- Phone Number
