WICHITA — Wichita loves its beef, of course, but apparently it’s a salad town, too.
“Despite its reputation for meat and potatoes, Wichita is among the most sophisticated salad markets in the country and home to an increasing number of salad lovers,” according to a Dole press release. “Our research found that salad consumers here are much more likely to use salad as a meal or as the basis for creative new lunch and dinner entrees. From a salad standpoint, Wichita is a trendsetter.”
Dole released the study in conjunction with the launch of its reinvented salad line.
Like Wichita, other cities that made the list — such as Houston, Dallas, Louisville and Kansas City — also are known for meat like barbecue, steak and fried chicken.
