Fort Worth, Texas, has a reputation for its fast-casual restaurants, but a recent report has put Fort Worth in the top 10 for the number of fast-food restaurants serving ramen.
The restaurant survey by the food news outlet Restaurant Brands Network (RBN) found that Fort Worth has 3,079 fast-to-order ramen restaurants and 3,082 pizza restaurants, which are located on three main streets.
Ramen, a Japanese-style noodle dish, has long been popular in Fort Wayne, but the restaurant survey showed that Fort Wayne is the most popular destination for ramen in the Dallas-Fort Worth metro area.
The survey of the top 5 fastest-growing fast-ordering restaurant markets in the US found that the Dallas market is expected to grow by about 40 percent over the next decade.
The market was also ranked among the fastest-shrinking fast-serving restaurants, with a projected decline of 40 percent by 2030.
The Fort Worth metroplex has a population of 2.3 million people, making it the sixth-largest metro area in the country.
The city has been struggling to keep up with its population growth, which is projected to reach more than 1.4 million by 2050, according to RBN.
The Fort Worth area has been ranked in the bottom five for overall population growth in the United States, according the most recent US Census Bureau data.
