50 Largest Restaurant Chains in America

Some of the most popular restaurant chains in the country aren’t the most successful. While customers may report how much they like (or dislike) a restaurant on surveys, the true way to tell whether a restaurant is popular or not is to look at where those customers put their money—not where they put their mouth.

That’s why we consulted Nation’s Restaurant News’ 2020 Top 200 report on the top 50 chains with the highest systemwide total sales to determine the largest popular restaurant chains in America.
