St. Louis Avoids Ignominy of Being a "Fast-Food Capital"
|Jared is everywhere -- watching you.|
I was wrong. On both counts.
St. Louis isn't included, and I choose to believe that this is because we really aren't the fast-food mecca we seem to be -- rather than the more likely explanation that the study considered the City of St. Louis rather than the larger metro area.
Orlando nabbed the top (bottom?) spot with 196.3 fast-food restaurants per 100,000 citizens. To the surprise of no one who has visited the state, Florida is very well represented in the list, as is Texas.
As a bonus, listed with each of the 40 cities is the chain most "prominent" there. In all but nine of the cities, that chain is Subway. Not sure how to interpret that except to conclude that the $5 Footlong song is one hell of an earworm.
