There are are pretty standard architectures for this with cache servers on the front edge, backed by load balancers that distribute requests to multiple application servers backed by multiple database servers.

The fact that you mention reading files rather than using a database and looping through those files raises a red flag.

I would recommend building a well coded application and worrying about scaling when it becomes an actual problem.

Actually, I think the Worse is Better approach may be the way to go. Just build something as quickly a possible that does what you want and see if the world actually loves it. If they do, then hire pros with all the money you are making. If they don't then you have lost the minimum amount of time and can move on to your next great idea. PHP excels at this e.g., Facebook, Wikipedia, WordPress, etc., etc., etc.

Apart from good points above I need to point that timezones (roughly) correlate to longitude, not latitude:
