Cardiff named as 'unhealthiest city' in terms of fast food outlets, report says

Oxford, meanwhile, is the pizza capital of the UK with 8 pizza restaurants for every 100,000 people.

Cardiff is labelled as the "unhealthiest city" by data firm FXTM in terms of fast food restaurants, with 30 fast food franchises available for every 100,000 people in the city. 

The study, which examined 22 cities across the UK and 16 fast food franchises, also identified the respective 'capitals' of each of the brands.

Cambridge, for example, is the coffee franchise capital of the UK with approximately 20 coffee franchises for every 100,000 people.

Oxford, meanwhile, holds the title for pizza capital of the UK due to having 8 pizza restaurants for every 100,000 people.

Residents in Newcastle live in McDonald's capital of the UK with one McDonald's site per 19,000 people while Birmingham is the city with the most Greggs restaurants overall.

As opposed to Cardiff, FXTM considers Sheffield as the healthiest city with only six chains per capita in the UK.
