Most Popular Fast Foods During Pandemic

Fast food has struggled during the pandemic . . . sales are down 23% across the board.  But there’s one type of fast food that’s taken a lot less of a beating . . . and that’s fried chicken.  People still LOVE their fried chicken.

Fried chicken has been the most popular fast food option during the pandemic . . . and a new study found the most popular fried chicken fast food chain in each state over the past year.

KFC won the most states, with 14 . . . Church’s was second, with 10 . . . and Raising Cane’s was third, with nine.  Zaxby’s got seven states and Popeyes got six.

Interestingly enough, Chick-fil-A wasn’t number one in any state . . . even though it’s done really strong sales in the past year.  I guess there’s always just one even greasier option that people go to more.
