Fast-Food Dining Is Most Popular for Those With Middle Incomes

Fast foods restaurants such as McDonalds, Wendy’s, Kentucky Fried Chicken, and way more restaurants are normal to dine at in the middle class society. You would think, because the lower class does not receive as much income as the middle or higher classes, they would HAVE to get fast food on a regular basis due to their little pay. This assumption isn’t true. A national study from 1994 to 1996 has been done and said that middle class people are more likely to purchase fast foods rather than lower classes or higher classes. “There is a correlation between obesity and lower income, but it cannot be solely attributed to restaurant choice,” said J. Paul Leigh, which is a publisher in Population Health Management. “Fast-food dining is most popular among the middle class, who are less likely to be obese.” Why exactly do the middle class buy fast foods and what exactly do the see in them? Well simply,” Low prices, convenience and free toys target the middle class — especially budget-conscious, hurried parents — very well,” said Leigh.
