The team over at Stacker team put together a list of the fast food places with the most locations in our state, which you can see below. Interestingly, neither McDonald's nor Minnesota's top fast food giant made it to the top three.

In 2022, Fox 9 reported that Dairy Queen was Minnesota's favorite fast food spot. However, things have changed, and we now have a new favorite in the new year.

Fast Food is as American as Apple Pie

We love fast-food here in American. Drive Research says, "2 in 3 people consume fast food at least once a week and on average, people spend $148 on fast food each month."

In 2023, USA Today compiled a list of the top fast food chains in Minnesota, with Jersey Mike's, Kung Fu Tea, and Raising Cane's taking the top three spots, but there's a new champ for 2024. 

Chain restaurants vary in popularity based on the region of the country so the team at FinanceBuzz team decided to break it down and figure out what the most popular chain in each country was.
