Ever walk throughout Old Town and think, "Man, there are so many restaurants to choose from"?
Well, food service researcher NPD Group put that thought to a statistic and found that the Fort Collins-Loveland area ranks as the city with the most "fast-casual chain restaurants" per resident.
Surprisingly, Denver ranks second.
According to an article in The Coloradoan:
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.
