The Daily Beast, a generally helpful commentary and news blog, tossed Spokane into the food-industry upper, or lower, echelons in a recent list of the 10 most fast-food saturated cities in the land.

Yay, Spokane.

We ranked No. 9, just after Cincinnatti and ahead of Birmingham, Ala.

The ranking looked at density of fast food places per 100,000 residents. The Spokane FF profile is:

Total fast food restaurants: 158
Fast food restaurants per 100,000 residents: 77.7
Most prominent chain: Subway

The top-rated fast food capital of the United States is Orlando. This, Spokane, is our main competition:

Total fast food restaurants: 463
Fast food restaurants per 100,000 residents: 196.3
Most prominent chain: Subway
