Derry has the lowest number of fast food outlets per head of capita in the north as new study has found,
Looking only at the numbers of specific outlets of McDonald’s, Burger King, KFC, Domino’s, Subway, Greggs and Costa, the study, entitled ‘Fast Food Britain’, and carried out by an online pharmacy, researched the prominence of fast food outlets in towns and cities.
In Northern Ireland they excluded Greggs from the study as there is currently only one in the whole region.
It concluded that Derry, alongside Bangor, had the healthiest numbers, with the lowest number of outlets per capita with just 0.15 stores per 1,000 people.
At the time the study was carried out there were three McDonald’s, two KFC, two Domino’s, six Subway, one Costa and no Burger King stores in Derry.
However, the study doesn’t take into consideration the large number of fast food outlets that are not under the umbrella of nationwide names considered.
In conclusion Newry was the town with the highest number of total outlets per capita, and is a small town where every brand is represented.
