If it is, it'll go in by the Turnpike. They like major interchanges. I used to live by the one in Fogelsville at Route 100 and I-78. I think that its overrated . . .

oh i agree, what is all the fuss about with this place? seriously its gross! everytime i have everbeen DRAGGED there its packed. its like bad cafeteria food. i mean the only good thing is when something new opens in the area is that it generates some sort of employment for the area. but it would be nice to get like a chipolte or saladworks, something on the healthy side! lord knows they have plenty of room to put something like that up by the turnpike.

These big corporate fast food chains have enormous amounts of demographic data at their disposal through both private research and the U.S. Census that they slice and dice using computer programs. They see that Quakertown has a lot of busy highways (logical), relatively low levels of income/education (oddly enough they consider this), and a high number of rental units (they consider this too). Healthy (read expensive) food alternatives are therefore not going to locate here but unhealthy, cheap fast food places will clump together here in droves.

The only way we're going to get a better mix of restaurants is if the area not only grows but grows wealthier too. Unfortunately the marketing people see us as a little downscale compared to much of the Bux-Mont region right now

The concept you're describing is called data mining. They use complex computer algorithms to obtain this type of data...and it's very effective, especially when they have large quantities and varieties of data at hand.

You're absolutely right. Big name enterprises take an awful lot into account before locating to a particular area. Wal-Mart does a phenomenal amount of research and planning before they even suggest the idea to a municipality. I don't mean to throw a wet blanket on revitalization, however, up scale merchants and dining just doesn't fit into the "majority" of the Quakertown area population. The fast food craze wasn't created overnight and it isn't based on competition. Give the majority what they can afford and want and fast food will thrive.

On the up side, if they build, they would pay a significant amount of taxes into the area and bring some employment. they should put it where the strip club was. Is that borough or township?

I haven't heard anything so it's likely not true.

Baja Fresh is owned by Wendys....and they have plenty of unhealthy choices. Nachos have more calories and fat than 3 Quarter Pounders, Quesadillas are over 1200 calories and have two days worth of saturated fat. The kids meal has 27 grams of fat.

Chipotle is owned by McDonalds.

I'm not sure I think eating out is ever healthy.

Surprisingly...taco bell's fresco menu has many items under 300 calories & 5 g of fat....but eating there makes me ill, lol!

Chipotle is one of the first chains of fast casual dining establishments.[9] From 1998 to 2006, McDonald's Corporation owned a majority interest in Chipotle, but fully divested their interest in 2006.[10]
