In honor of ‘National Fast Food Day ‘ on Friday, November 16, the website Digital Third Coast has released a study detailing the fast food restaurants that entrepreneurs want to open a franchise for in each state
To determine this, they looked at Google search volume trends that were specifically based on searches for franchising opportunities in every state.
In West Virginia, the most desired fast food restaurant to open a franchise for was Waffle House. Only one other state, Iowa, chose Waffle House as their most desired fast food restaurant to franchise. Waffle House has over 2,000 locations across 25 states, and is most popular in the southern United States.
The most popular fast food restaurant to franchise in the United States was Chic-Fil-A, as it placed first in 12 different states. These 12 states were Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Tennessee, Georgia, Florida, South Carolina, North Carolina, Virginia, Maryland, Ohio and Pennsylvania.
