Find out the most popular fast food stop during the pandemic

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, many people have had to adjust to a new normal. Part of this adjustment has been trading dining out for dining in. But that doesn’t mean you can’t pick up your favorite foods and enjoy them right from your home. So, the action of wanting to eat out has given fast food a whole new meaning. Top Data, a company that analyzes consumer data and, in this instance, fast food, looked at each state’s most popular fast food choice during the pandemic.

After concluding research, Top Data found that Louisiana has gravitated most to its regional fan favorite fast food chain, Popeyes. Other top Louisiana contenders were Sonic, Raising Cane’s, McDonald’s and Subway. Sonic ruled in Texas, Arkansas and Oklahoma. Top Texas take outs and drive thrus were Sonic, Whataburger, McDonald’s, Chick-fil-A and Subway. Eaters in Arkansas and Oklahoma made Sonic, McDonald’s, Taco Bell, Subway and Chick-fil-A the most popular fast food joints to eat during the pandemic.

Top Data’s research found that an overwhelming amount of people across the United States have favored Sonic, which probably has something to do with their drive-in styled carhop service. Wendy’s and Taco Bell came in second across the United States.
