Fort Collins-Loveland Area Has the Most Fast-Casual Restaurants in the Nation

It’s not full-on sit-down dining, but it’s not fast food either.  Fast-casual restaurants offer higher quality food than the local fast food joint; but still get it to you fast, even if it costs a little more.  And apparently, we love fast-casual restaurants; because there are a ton of them in our community.

The Coloradoan reports Fort Collins-Loveland has the highest concentration of fast-casual chain restaurants in the country.

Of the 15,728 fast-casual chain units in the U.S. Fort Collins-Loveland has 41, but it is No. 1 in terms of density with 13.14 locations per 100,000 residents, according to NPD’s Spring 2013 ReCount restaurant census. The U.S. average is five units per 100,000 residents.

I think this is awesome.  Given the choice between the fast-food cheeseburger or the fast-casual salad/panini combo, I’ll pick the combo every time.  At the very least, I know there’s less pink slime in the salad!

Which kind of restaurant do you prefer?  Sound off in the comments!
