What Is North America’s Favorite Restaurant Meal and Why is Fast Food So Popular?

North Americans eat about half of their meals away from home, which is one big reason why fast food is so popular.

55 percent of the average diet is fast food or junk food, but at a sit-down restaurant, fried chicken is the most popular meal, followed by roast beef, spaghetti, turkey, ham, and fried shrimp.

On the other hand, Kentucky Fried Chicken sells approximately eleven pieces of chicken annually for every man, woman, and child in both Canada and the United States.
