Fast Food Prices by State 2024

from World Population Review, May, 2024

Fast food has become a staple of modern American dining, offering convenient and affordable options for meals on the go. However, the prices of fast food items can vary significantly from state to state, influenced by factors such as local operating costs, competition, and consumer preferences. The table (LINK) provides a snapshot of the prices for a medium-sized, hand-tossed cheese pizza from Domino's Pizza across different states in the United States.

At the top end of the spectrum, Hawaii emerges as the state with the highest average price for a medium cheese pizza, reaching $18.99. This high price point can be attributed to Hawaii's remote location, which increases transportation costs for food products, as well as its status as a popular tourist destination, where prices tend to be higher overall. Conversely, states like Nebraska and Idaho offer more budget-friendly options, with prices as low as $11.99 and $12.35, respectively.

Examining the prices across states reveals interesting patterns. For instance, states in the Northeast, such as Connecticut, New York, and Massachusetts, tend to have higher prices compared to states in the Midwest and South. This could be due to higher living costs and operating expenses in urban areas of the Northeast, where demand for fast food is typically strong.

Additionally, regional fast food chains and preferences may also influence pricing. For example, states with a strong presence of regional pizza chains or local favorites may experience different pricing dynamics compared to states dominated by national chains. Furthermore, promotional offers and discounts may vary by region, affecting the overall affordability of fast food options.

Fast Food Prices by State 2024--Hawaii
  • Dominos Med Cheese $18.99 
  • McDonalds Happy Meal $3.71 
  • McDonalds Big Mac $5.31 
  • Chick-fil-A Chicken Sandwich $4.06 
  • Taco Bell Combo Meal $7.70 

Fast food prices change frequently, both permanently or as part of temporary promotions. As such, the prices shown are relative to one another at a specific time, but may differ significantly from current prices.

The Dominos meal evaluated was a medium-sized, hand-tossed cheese pizza.
