Just how popular are the golden arches? So popular that nearly half of US consumers visited them last month, according to a new study spotted by theConsumerist. The study, from the new Placed Insights service, sought to determine which businesses Americans visit most. Fast food dominates the list, but McDonald’s is in a class of its own, with 49% visiting in March. Here’s the top 10:

  1. McDonald’s (49%)
  2. Walmart (38.8%)
  3. Subway (37.8%)
  4. Burger King (24.3%)
  5. Starbucks (23.9%)
  6. Wendy’s (22.8%)
  7. Walgreens (22.7%)
  8. CVS (18.9%)
  9. Taco Bell (18.2%)
  10. Target (14.2%)

There were some other surprises further down the list as well, like GameStop coming in at No. 12 with 12.8%, or RadioShack (No. 14, 12.1%) trouncing Best Buy (No. 35).
