Chick-fil-A Passes Starbucks as Teens’ Favorite Restaurant, According to Survey

At least Starbucks still has Sundays on lock. According to Piper Jaffray’s survey, Chick-fil-A passes Starbucks as the favorite restaurant of teens from homes with an average income of 68,000. This is the first time this has happened since 2011.

12% of these teens preferred Chick-fil-A while 10% prefer Starbucks.

Coming in third was McDonald’s at 7%, while Chipotle, Taco Bell and Olive Garden all sit at 4%.

The survey was done among 8,600 teens who live in homes with an average household income of $68,000.

It’s good to see the Christian company Chick-fil-A, the gold standard of fast food, pass up far left Starbucks, but come on kids. How do you possibly let Taco Hell and freaking Olive Garden in your top 5? I realize these are children and their tastes will evolve, but come on.

When more wealthy homes, Chick-fil-A held the top spot again after beating Starbucks in the previous edition. In the upper income Chipotle, McDonald’s and Dunkin’ took third, fourth and fifth.

Chick-fil-A continues to thrive. The American Customer Satisfaction Index named them the nation’s favorite fast food restaurant for the third year in a row. This is very impressive when you look back at 2010 when Chick-fil-A wasn’t even among the top five favorite fast food restaurants in the United States.

And no need to fear that Chick-fil-A is resting on their laurels. They are now testing macaroni and cheese in some of their restaurants. It seems mac and cheese would be a great way to boost their value in the minds of teens even more.
