Starbucks versus McDonalds

Here's an interesting graphic on the growth (over time and geographically) of Starbucks and McDonalds.

It really surprised me that Starbucks doesn't have more sales--what with one of the funniest Onion articles ever being a gag on the Borg-like expansion of Starbucks. This article was eight years ago too (how I remember it I have no idea). If they were expanding so fast to be noteworthy back then, how do they only have 6700 stores world wide? Seems bizarre to me. Or maybe they just aren't counting all the franchises inside bathrooms...
