A recent survey by the Stacker website seems to suggest that Louisiana loves fast food, but the most common fast food franchise in the state probably isn’t the one you first thought of. The Stacker study used data collected at Georgia Tech University.

If we break down the list of the 15 most common fast food franchises in the state, you’ll find that we love our burgers. There are mainly four hamburger restaurants in the top 15. Chicken restaurants did quite well with three different franchises making the top 15.

You can see Stacker’s full list here to see how the rest of the list comes together and see if your favorite place made the list, I bet it does. I also assume that they did not include Krispy Krunch Chicken in this study.
I believe they have over 300 KKC locations in the state. This franchise also has over 2,600 locations scattered throughout the country. Just in case you don’t fancy a sandwich.
