If you live in Towne Lake and have ever succumbed to the late night cravings of waffles and hash browns, you may have visited the Waffle House located at 158 Towne Lake Parkway. What you may not been aware of is that this is one of the most visited Waffle House’s in this country as named by the website Buzzfeed.
The Towne Lake location came up as the number three most visited Waffle House location on a list of 21. Other locations included stores in Arizona, Florida, Tennessee and North Carolina. The bulk of locations on the list however are located in the metro Atlanta area.
In this less than scientific survey – Buzzfeed looked at check ins on the popular social media app Four Square to determine the 21 most “checked in” Waffle Houses in the country. These rankings are not based on number of customers or revenue provided by the corporate office of Waffle House located in Atlanta.
Foursquare is a location-based social networking website for mobile devices, such as smartphones. Users “check in” at venues using a mobile website, text messaging or a device-specific application. Each check-in awards the user points and sometimes “badges”. The user who checks in the most often to a venue becomes the “mayor,” and users regularly vie among each other for “mayorships.”
What this survey may actually tell us is that visitors to the Towne Lake location of Waffle House are the third most social media engaged visitors to Waffle House in the country.
The number one Waffle House location for check ins? The location on 5th St. in Atlanta near Georgia Tech.
