This state has the most fast-food restaurants in all of America


No matter which state you live in, from Alaska to Hawaii and beyond, there’s no shortage of fast-food restaurants. But residents of a certain state have more options per capita than the other 49. Alabama, the home of the Crimson Tide, comes in at No. 1 with 6.3 restaurants per 10,000 residents, according to a recent report from web data company Datafiniti.

Nebraska comes in second, with 5.4 restaurants per 10,000 residents, closely followed by West Virginia and Oklahoma at 5.3 locations per 10,000 people.

But you won’t be so spoiled for choice in Vermont, which took the last spot on the list, with just 1.9 fast-food restaurants per 10,000 people. New Jersey is second-to-the-last with 2.0 locations per 10,000 residents, and then New York and Mississippi at 2.1 locations per 10,000 people.

According to the report, southern and central states have the highest rate of fast-food eateries per capita, with the eastern part of the country coming in last with the fewest of these eateries per 10,000 residents. (Southern state Mississippi — and neighbor to No. 1 Alabama — is a surprise in the bottom 10, especially considering the two states share a border.)
