Ranked: The 50 Most Popular Fast Food Chains in America #infographic

Millions of Americans eat every day at fast food restaurants, and they now have more options than ever before at their disposal.

There's a fast service restaurant that'll satisfy almost every hunger, from burgers to pad thai. Which fast food chains are the most common among customers, with all this choice?

Today's infographic, using QSR Magazine data, lists the top 50 largest fast food chains in the U.S. by revenue in 2019, offering insight into the kinds of food that Americans have been craving for.

Unsurprisingly, with over $40 billion in revenue, McDonald's is number one. Despite a controversy surrounding its former CEO, McDonald's nevertheless managed to outsell its rivals substantially, making the company almost double that of Starbucks, the second largest fast food chain.

But don't worry, Starbucks was just doing fine on its own. The Seattle-based coffee chain saw a 5 percent rise compared to its numbers in 2018, with $21 billion in sales.

It is clear on the basis of the ranking that Americans really love their McDonalds. But burgers are the most popular fast food item in general,

In brief-yes. King are the burgers. Here's a look at how burgers, pizza, chicken and other food types measure up.

Burger joints remain the most common choice among consumers for fast food-14 of the 50 chains on the list are listed as burger restaurants, with combined sales of $80 billion

Snacks came in second, with a total revenue of $36 billion. With a wide selection of items, from iced coffee to donuts and ice cream, this category contains six of the restaurants on the list. The most famous is Starbucks, followed by Dunkin 'and Dairy Queen.

Although the categories of chicken and sandwich both have nine restaurants included in the list, chicken restaurants outsold almost $1 billion in sandwiches. This is primarily attributed to Chick-fil-A, which accounts for more than a third of all sales of chicken restaurants included in the ranking.

Before the catastrophic effects of COVID-19, it is important to remember that these statistics represent the fast food industry. The global pandemic has caused several fast food restaurants to change, and a number of restaurant shutdowns have been triggered as well.

McDonald's, for example, is expected to close 200 of its 14,000 U.S. stores indefinitely, and Dunkin 'will close 450 outlets by the end of 2020. Starbucks has also announced that it plans to shut down up to 400 stores permanently by mid-2021.

The chains with a strong digital presence could be in a stronger position to survive the storm, with online sales more important than ever. Chains with physical distancing solutions may also recover faster, such as drive-throughs.
