Fancy McDonald’s for its World Famous fries and Wendy’s for her never-frozen cheeseburgers? While many fast-food-frequenting folks swear by their favorite drive-thru joint, have you ever wondered which restaurant continues to steal the heart of the majority and bridges the gap between our polarized population?
YouGov, a firm that specializes in online research, has been keeping track of the most popular dining brands in America based on over 7,953 interviews across multiple demographics taken between June 2018 and June 2019.
According to YouGov, popularity is “calculated by taking the proportion of people who view something positively and showing it as a percentage of all of the people who have given any opinion about that thing, including ‘have heard of.’”
To help make YouGov’s data of dining brands more digestible, we combed through the list and isolated just the fast food chains. We ranked these fast food joints from least to most popular.
