Chick-Fil-A Third Largest Restaurant Chain In U.S.
CHICK-FIL-A NOW STANDS AS THE THIRD BIGGEST RESTAURANT CHAIN IN THE U.S., WITH 16.7 PERCENT SALES GROWTH IN 2018
(CNN) – Chick-Fil-A’s star is rising.
It now boasts the title of the third biggest restaurant chain in the United States, according to a new ranking by ‘nation’s restaurant news.’
It’s only surprassed by McDonald’s, which held onto the number one spot, and Starbucks, which remains in the second position.
‘Nation’s Restaurant News’ put Chick-Fil-A’s 2018 system-wide sales in the U.S. at nearly $10.5 billion.
That’s a sales growth of 16.7% for the year.
The privately owned chicken chain based in Atlanta soared up to the third spot from number seven in the previous year’s ranking.
It flew past Wendy’s, Burger King, Taco Bell, and Subway.
That’s despite not being open on Sundays and past public controversies.
