For each of the fifty states , I selected a corporation or brand that best represented the states. My criteria are subjective, but in each case, I picked a brand that a) has ties to that state and b) is still in business .

We’re best known as the “Insurance Capital of the Nation/World” and as home to, amongst others, The Hartford . Kroger is a big corporation which was founded in 1883 in Cincinnati, Ohio. Today they have stores with different names in other states like King Soopers, City Market, Fry’s and Dillions. West https://smartasset.com/checking-account/the-top-ten-banks-by-assets-held Virginia is not well-represnted here. Gino’s is pretty lousy pizza and they don’t reach far beyond out borders. A better pick would be Fiesta (Homer-Laughlin China) or Blenko Glass. There aren’t that many well-known companies in my home state of Montana, but you missed the most famous by a long shot.

Except to those of us that have owned 157 AOL disks and CD’s at no charge. Also, AOL is based in New York State these days. McCormick – A classic https://www.weezevent.com/how-to-start-investing-in-the-stock-market-in-2021 choice, and a soft spot locally – not sure that when people think spice nationally/internationally that McCormick is the instant link.

  • But for locals, when they were downtown, Cinnamon grinding days in the tea room, is the stuff of legend.

Texas should be represented by Exxon Mobil, or some energy company. That’s more reflective of the state as a whole. Or maybe Dell Computer, if you wanted a smaller company, and one with a more direct consumer product. It has dotbig contacts a much, much, MUCH longer history in California. Marlboro – is the top selling cigarette brand in the world, I learned about Virginia tobacco along with the founding of the 13 original Colonies, AOL can not come close.

But combined you have 6 or 7 of the biggest banks in US history going back to George Washington’s lifetime in one company occupying three huge skyscrapers in Manhattan alone today. Hooter’s is an example of a brand bigger than it’s company – fewer than 500 locations in the US – yet it seems to be ubiquitous. Good call – replace Bank of America – which $@c#ks so far as its credit card services go. I think their hands were pretty dirty during the real estate bubble – making utterly trashy loans along with most other large banks. I woudn’t think any bank “represents” any state in any kind of a valid fashion. Their minions were (still are?) forced to answer phone calls with their slogan “higher standards”. I laughed for a good half-minute when I first heard that.

They used ‘Sweet Home Alabama’ in a commercial several years ago, and somebody took them to task over it, and the result was that they were going for a ‘generically southern fried chicken’. Country, yes, but I wouldn’t call it southern. How could you pick Pillsbury for Minnesota?
