Chick-fil-A appears to be doing something right! The restaurant chain that’s famous for its chicken sandwich is #1 for customer satisfaction, according to the American Customer Satisfaction Index’s latest report.
The study said both full-service and limited-service (fast food) restaurants are improving by revamping their menus and rolling out mobile ordering options.
“As the economy improves, consumers have more money to spend, and they’re dining out more,” said David VanAmburg, Managing Director at ACSI. “At the same time, restaurants are adapting their menus and technology in line with shifting consumer preferences, as millennial tastes for fresh food, mobile ordering, and automated kiosks take hold. The bottom line: Restaurants are working hard to please consumers, and the latest ACSI scores show that it’s paying off.”
