“There is hope for America. I must admit that I’m pleasantly surprised by this news.” – Todd Starnes
Young Americans have declared their favorite restaurant chain in a new survey.
A Piper Sandler Taking Stock with Teens survey of 14,500 teens from 47 states with an average age of 16, found that Gen Z ranked Chick-fil-A as their top choice.
The popular chicken chain garnered 15 percent to get the coveted number-one spot. It is also a favorite of Millennials, according to the American Consumer Index Satisfaction Restaurant Study’s annual report.
“There is hope for America,” said national radio host Todd Starnes. “I must admit that I’m pleasantly surprised by this news. I figured their restaurant of choice would’ve been an organic juice bar.”
The “Todd Starnes Show” host was not too far off. Starbucks got 12 percent in second, followed by Chipotle at seven percent and McDonald’s at six percent.
Despite backlash from Democrats who have tried to boycott Chick-fil-A over the last few years, the company boasted $16 billion in sales with 2,730 outlets in 2021, according to Technomic.
Chick-fil-A regularly goes viral on social media for its sauces, sandwiches and nuggets, and quick service with a smile.
