Mapping McDonald's Stores by County in R

I wanted to learn how to use highcharter to make a map like this one, so I figured I’d use McDonalds store locations to recreate a similar product. Luckily, mapping these stores is not an original idea and someone already scraped the data from McDonalds website in 2014. Since I couldn’t get the geojson file to play nice in R, I used ConvertCSV to get it in a flat file and ran the R code found later in this post.
