Forbes recently analyzed the rising stocks of chain restaurants. From that information, they were able to gauge the 14 fastest-growing stocks.

However, these aren't restaurants like Olive Garden or Texas Roadhouse. The most profitable chains are, for the most part, fast food.

Dave and Buster's did make the list, but they are a whole different species of restaurant.

Amarillo is home to half of the 14 fastest-growing restaurants in the U.S. This is great news for Amarillo, since the value of each of these restaurants is quickly rising. Also great, because these places have really great food.

They are listed in reverse order, from slowest to fastest.

  • Cracker Barrel
  • Papa Murphy's
  • Sonic
  • Popeyes
  • Buffalo Wild Wings
  • Chipotle
  • Domino's

Amarillo actually has two Papa Murphy's, twelve Sonics, three Popeyes, two Buffalo Wild Wings, and three Domino's restaurants.

Basically, we're doing pretty well!
