2 Wisconsin Cities Rank Toward The Bottom of the List For Donuts
First of all, if you're a Wisconsinite, donut shoot the messenger.
Wisconsin is known for dairy and fireworks, right? If you live in Illinois this is certain. Also, add Spotted Cow to the list of "Things To Go To Wisconsin For" when you're headed up north.
Truth be told, Wisconsin is a beautiful state with a lot to offer except for one thing. Donuts.
If you're in Wisconsin reading this and you're fuming mad and about to flip tables, allow me to explain.
This little factoid is not in regards to the quality of donuts available in Madison and Milwaukee, Wisconsin, it's the quantity.
DEEP DIVE INTO THE RANKING
Apparently, according to a news report in Madison, Rent.com conducted this study. (I didn't know they were donut experts.)
This study involved the 150 biggest cities in the United States.
Rent.com took the 150 largest cities in America and determined how many doughnut shops there were per capita and per square mile as well as the number of them compared to other businesses in the city.
Milwaukee and Madison didn't do so hot. Chicago though, the windy city narrowly missed making it into the top 10.
THE RANKING SYSTEM
Here is how the list was determined: city population, donuts per business, donuts per sq. mile, donuts per capita.
Madison, which has 259,000+ residents, came in at #8 on the "bad" list.
Milwaukee, which has nearly 600,000 residents, bottomed out at #10.
8 Madison, Wisconsin 259,680 145 125 141 9 Minneapolis, Minnesota 429,606 148 96 146 10 Milwaukee, Wisconsin 590,157 143 103 142
