Conservatives and liberals appear to agree on one thing: Chick-Fil-A is America’s number one chicken restaurant.
A new study found that the chicken sandwich chain remains on top despite their public disapproval of gay marriage.
The research conducted by Market Force surveyed over 7,600 consumers to find the top chicken chain. Raising Cane’s and Boston Market took second and third place while El Pollo Loco, Zaxby’s, Popeye’s, KFC, Wingstop, and Church’s Chicken fell right behind.
The study examined the number of votes and chain locations with Chick-Fil-A beating others having over 1,600 stores in 39 states.
In terms of regional wins, Chick-Fil-A fared well in all regions except the South where Raising Cane’s took the top spot. Boston Market performed well across all regions as well.
Researchers attribute Chick-Fil-A’s success to their quality food and taste, value, cleanliness, customer service, and atmosphere. Boston Market fans also reported the same favorable characteristics. KFC, on the other hand came in 9th place for food quality, taste and value.
