Chik-fil-A has won this year in overall customer satisfaction in a competition against other fast food chains. The fast food joint is known for its courtesy (does “my pleasure” sound familiar?) and hospitality, as well as remaining traditional. The fast food restaurant is one of the few establishments still closed on Sunday, and doesn’t give into “gimmicky” trends like fake kale salads or gluten-free everything.
The restaurant has faced criticism in the past for its same sex marriage controversy, with liberal media pundits pointing shame at the Chik-fil-A corporation for supporting the WinShape Foundation, an organization that was against gay marriage. Of course, that doesn’t mean Chik-fil-A has ever discriminated against those who are gay. In fact, the fast food chain opened up some of their locations near Orlando this past Sunday to give food to blood donors after the shooting massacre.
The Georgia-based chicken chain took home the top spot by a wide margin with 87 points on a scale of 100. The family-owned company has been expanding across the country and is currently in 43 states and Washington, D.C., and had more than $6 billion in sales last year. Papa John’s came in second place in the fast food rankings with a score of 82, a five percent increase from 2015.
