A Few Fast Food Facts

Still taken aback by the lines each time we pass, I noticed this over on the stltoday forums in relation to Wendy’s reopening:

“St. louis is lacking in fast food…”


“St. Louis. Waistlines here are probably as well-rounded as the Gateway Arch, because most menus consist of burgers and beer. The city has the highest ratio of fast-food joints per capita in the survey. Ditto for bars and taverns.”

I realize that’s a couple years old, and we’re slightly healthier then we were in 2003, but have that many fast food restaurants gone out of business? I wouldn’t think so.

And check out where the U.S. ranks as a nation for fast food expenditure…

1. United States. … US$148.6 billion (64.8% of top 10 country fast food sales)
2. Japan … $13.9 billion (6.1%)

    I have figured out some new items from your web page about personal computers. Another thing I’ve always imagined is that computer systems have become a specific thing that each home must have for many reasons. They supply you with convenient ways to organize the home, pay bills, go shopping, study, tune in to music and even watch tv programs. An innovative solution to complete these tasks is a mobile computer. These computers are portable ones, small, powerful and lightweight.
