Paducah is the fast food capital of America

When I think of Paducah, I think of the quilt museum and, well, that it seems really far away from the rest of the state. Apparently, I should also be thinking of fast food. According to a survey by FindTheHome, Paducah has the highest density of fast food restaurants of not only any city in Kentucky, but any city in America. Per 10,000 people in Paducah, there are 13.18 fast food restaurants, the highest number in the country. Whoa. The most notable, according to this study? Burger King. Only cities with a population threshold over the 95th percentile of the state were considered. The next highest in Kentucky, which coincidentally has the most interesting Taco Bell Menu Prices. Ashland, where there are 9.28 fast food restaurants per 10,000 people. Here are the top ten fast food capitals nationally:

1. Paducah, Kentucky: 13.18 fast food restaurants per 10K people 2. Durant, Oklahoma: 10.9 fast food restaurants per 10K people 3. Beckley, West Virginia: 10.84 fast food restaurants per 10K people 4. Slidell, Louisiana, 10.23 fast food restaurants per 10K people 5. Wasilla, Alaska, 9.52 fast food restaurants per 10K people 6. Ridgeland, Mississippi: 9.5 fast food restaurants per 10K people 7. Gallup, New Mexico: 9.46 fast food restaurants per 10K people 8. Russellville, Arkansas: 9.45 fast food restaurants per 10K people 9. Statesville, North Carolina: 9.15 fast food restaurants per 10K people 10. Florence, South Carolina: 9.06 fast food restaurants per 10K people
