Fast food and chain restaurants are not found around the New England College (NEC) campus in Henniker, New Hampshire. The closest fast-food restaurant is a Dunkin Donuts on Route 202, which is roughly a 10-minute drive from the campus.
To find out what NEC students thought of this, I went around campus and asked if they would like to see more fast food and chain options near campus.

Most of the students I interviewed want more fast-food options while some others opposed it due to how it could complicate small businesses.
“As a college student a McDonald’s is open almost all the time it’s best for late night food,” said NEC student Jason Mercado.
“I think a lot of what makes Henniker beautiful is that it is devoid from big business. You have a lot of small stores which I’d much rather see,” student Gabe Reynolds said.
