If you had to guess how many Fast Food companies there are, I don't think I would come anywhere close to the correct number. 

If you had to guess, I bet you would not have guessed over 200,000.  According to Google, there are 204,555 "Fast Food" restaurant businesses in the US.  Now, we know that almost all of major chains are here in Sedalia, or in West Central Missouri.  Lots of options for sure.  We all have our favorites.  You may have seen a few of our videos where we have taste tested a few.  As it turns out, the website Thrillist.com have an awards event called "The Fasties" and they determine the winners in 15 categories of fast food.  Since we have so many Fast Food places in our area, I thought it would be share the winners.
