he HelloFresh company looked at the twenty-five largest French cities and tried to answer this question: in which city are there the most so-called “fast” restaurants and restaurant chains? Contrary to what one might think, reports this article from Libre Service Actualités, the consumer magazine of Thursday, April 21, it is not only about brands offering burgers and fries. Fast food includes restaurants that offer dishes as different as the famous burger, but also ham and butter, pizza, fish and chips, croque-monsieur and croque-madame, salads, wraps, and other sandwiches, specifies this company which offers meal “boxes” all over the world. In any case, fast food does not mean unhealthy food, reminds HelloFresh, which has closely studied these restaurants where dishes are prepared and eaten quickly.

The company relied on data available on Yelp, TripAdvisor and OpenStreetMaps, it explains on its site. According to the ranking made for the twenty-five largest French cities, Paris, at the top of the ranking for the number of restaurants (not limited to fast food) comes in 24th place. In first position, we find Cergy-Pontoise, with nearly one restaurant in five offering fast food in this city. Next comes Amiens with 15.9% of its restaurants belonging to the fast-food category, closely followed by Nimes (14.2%), Brest (13.4%) and Saint-Étienne (13.1%). The last place is attributed to Grenoble with only 8.2% of fast food among all its restaurants.

On average, one in 10 restaurants is a fast food establishment in France, according to this study. HelloFresh also analyzed the share of fast food chains among fast food restaurants in these cities, such as McDonalds, Burger King, Kentucky Fried Chicken, Subway, Pizza Hut and Domino’s Pizza. In Cergy and Amiens, one in three fast-food restaurants belongs to one of these large chains. But in other big cities like Grenoble, Paris or Aix-en-Provence, it is on the contrary the individual fast-foods which win the favor of the city dwellers, specifies HelloFresh.
