America's Favorite Restaurant Chains 2023
Inflation is hitting all of us in a variety of ways. For America's chain restaurants, it's been something of a mixed bag. While sales at chain restaurants have been up lately, the number of visits to them is actually down somewhat. The higher sales figures come in part from the higher prices diners are being charged. Nonetheless, Americans still like going to chain restaurants–a lot.
There are over 100,000 chain restaurant locations in the U.S. and total annual sales at them are expected to be close to $900 billion this year. For the second year, Newsweek and global data firm Statista are proud to award America's Favorite Restaurant Chains in selected categories. The awards are based on the results of a survey of more than 4,000 customers and employees of restaurant chains in the U.S. This year there are 220 winners in 16 categories.
