When you think of cities with a lot of restaurant options places like Seattle, San Francisco, New York or New Orleans often come to mind.
However, a new study says that Juneau tops the list in terms of the most restaurants per capita in the U.S.
Juneau boasts 112 restaurants, which means there are 36 restaurants for every 10,000 people in the Capital City.
NPD group is an industry market research firm that did the study. According to their press release, the number of restaurants nationwide increased by 4,442 between the fall of 2011 and fall 2012.
They say the total number of restaurants in the U.S. is now 616,008. Their survey includes restaurants that were open as of Sept. 30, 2012.
Approximately 55 percent of the restaurants counted in the survey were independently owned.
Juneau, is followed by Salisbury, Maryland and Bend, Oregon then Panama City, Florida and New York City for the top five most “restaurant-crazy cities,” according to the Huffington Post.
Anchorage was number 7 on the list with 1,012 restaurants which equals roughly 24 restaurants per 10,000 people.
