People from Georgia eat more fast food than many Americans.

That’s according to a new study from Zippia, a career research hub that analyzed which states love fast food the most.

The report even ranks the Top 10 states that eat the most fast food — and the 10 states that eat the least fast food.

The fast food industry employs more than 4.5 million in the U.S. and more than 12 million worldwide. Fast food restaurants are more common in some states and cities than others, Zippia found.

“In general, the south has disproportionately high amount of fast food joints, while the northeast has far less,” Zippia noted, among other fast facts. “Subway is the most common fast food restaurant- followed by McDonald’s and then Burger King”

Georgians love fast food so much, the Peach State ranked No. 7 among the states that eat the most fast food, according to Zippia. Georgia has 4.9 fast food restaurants per 10,000 residents, findings show. The state that snagged the No. 1 spot, Alabama, has a whopping 6.3 fast food restaurants per 10,000 residents.

Here’s there rest of the Top 10:

  1. Alabama
  2. Nebraska
  3. West Virginia
  4. Oklahoma
  5. Tennessee
  6. Indiana
  7. Georgia
  8. Missouri
  9. South Carolina
  10. Kentucky
