Isn't there two McDonalds in view of each other on US 1 in Spotsylvania, VA?

In Henrico County, VA (and just outside Richmond limits), there are 2 Chick-Fil-A's in the area of Willow Lawn Shopping Center. One is in the shopping center itself, facing Willow Lawn Dr. The other is a stand-alone location directly across Broad St (US 250). Both can be easily seen from either Willow Lawn Dr or the parking lot in front of the shopping center location.

In downtown Newport News, VA, two 7-11's are located near the southern end of the Shipyard. One is at the corner of Washington Ave & 36th St, the other at West Ave & 34th St. Both are visible from almost anywhere on the Newport News Transit Center property.

I remember seeing two hotels of the same brand across the interstate from each other in Nashville. It think it was Motel 6.

Did they leave the light on for you? ;)

Take a drive around La Crosse, WI, the home base for convenience store chain Kwik Trip. There will be a Kwik Trip literally on every corner along any of the main drags.

Likewise, Casey's General Stores have a huge presence in its headquarters of Ankeny, IA, including two within a quarter-mile of each other on Delaware Avenue. (One was built as a Casey's, while the other was acquired from another chain.)

Also, Pilot has two travel centers in Walcott, IA, that compete with the enormous Iowa 80 Truckstop.

They did! Would’ve been even better if Tom Bodette and the violin player were there.

I like when a mall has a fast food in it that is also outside the mall.  The Florida Mall used to have a Friendly's inside the mall and one outside on the corner of OBT and Sand Lake Road.  Sadly Friendly's is all gone in Central Florida as Kissimmee was the last remaining store that closed sometime around 2011.
