Department of Economic Development

Yes, believe it or not, Waffle House has "waffle counters." They also have coffee counters, bacon counters and count hash-brown purchases.

Recently, Norcross based Waffle House served its 1 billionth waffle. At an average rate of 145 waffles per minute, analysts could pretty much determine when the 1 billionth would be sold.

What are the statistics?
Egg sales, of course, rank at the top, with 2,501,866,574 sold since opening day, 1955.

The next best sellers?
Hash browns and bacon with calculated sales of 1,800,286,157 and 1,684,212,442, respectively.

"Breaking news!!" Waffle House tweeted on Tuesday (September 8, 2015), announcing it had just served its 1 billionth waffle.

The Norcross-based chain at the center of metro Atlanta culture (and stomachs) served the milestone meal at 10:04 a.m., the restaurant said.

The lucky patron — Shanneil McCollum of Miami, according to 11 Alive — received a plaque in commemoration from the downtown location.

McCollum also received balloons and a riotous round of applause from employees, according to 11 Alive.

"It feels good, it was very unexpected," she told the station. "I didn't know everyone was going to come with cameras and everything, but I enjoyed it — and I can't wait to eat it."

One Twitter follower was skeptical about the celebration, tweeting back, "I don't see a waffle. I also question how you knew which restaurant to have the plaque ready at."

WaHo responded: "It's waffle magic."
