Eat More Chicken...
Am I right?
We all love our Chick-fil-A.
The great customer service, the amazing chicken sandwiches, and fries that are to die for can't be beat.
Well it makes sense, because the rapidly growing fast food chain is now seated to become the third-largest fast-food chain in the Unites States next year by sales according the Kalinowski Equity Research.
This is such a remarkable accomplishment considering in 2017, Chick-fil-A sat at the number 7 spot.
This leap gives the fast-food chain the achievement of surpassing Subway, Taco Bell, Burger King, and Wendy's.
The only other chains above Chick-fil-A respectively are Starbucks at #2 and McDonald's at #1.
“We have long pointed out that Chick-fil-A is the restaurant competition with which McDonald’s U.S. should most concern itself – and by extension, investors should too,” Mark Kalinowski's report says, “But this goes beyond McDonald’s.”
What's even more remarkable is the the stat, that states the stores grew by nearly eight percent, to more than 2,100.
In the next year, Chick-fil-A is still expected to grow. Sales are predicted to grow as much as 15 percent to $10 billion on top of their 14.2 percent that's already happened in the last year.
He estimates that comparable-store sales are up between 4.5 percent and 7.5 percent this year as the company expands beyond its Southeast stronghold, opening more stores in the Northeast and Midwest.
