If you had to guess the answer to that question, what you you say? I think the most common answer would be McDonald's, but is that the correct answer? Well, Stacker compiled a list of the most common fast food chains in Indiana using data from the Friendly City Lab at Georgia Tech. Naturally, I know that my favorite fast food chain won't be in the running, as Grandy's only has one location left in Indiana. Side note: if you have never had Grandy's you are missing out!
