The chain store with the most locations in New York City? Not Starbucks, though for now it does dominate Manhattan with 186 stores. Instead, the franchise that owns all five boroughs is Dunkin' Donuts, according to the Center for an Urban Future's "New York By the Numbers" survey. Also of note: There are 105 Sleepy's in NYC.
