Subway Beat Out Five Guys, Wendy's, and Dairy Queen in Study

Harris Poll EquiTrend study found that people still like Subway, but Einstein Bagels may beat out Dunkin' Donuts


Looks like Americans still really love their Subway sandwiches: According to the annual Harris Poll EquiTrend study, Subway was ranked the highest in the "quick-service" category for the eighth year in a row.

Why? "Consumers are graduating from saying they're interested in better nutrition choices in restaurants to actually changing their purchase behavior," a Harris Interactive representative said in a press release. The poll surveyed 38,500 consumers.

Still, Dairy Queen came in second, followed by Wendy's, Five Guys, Chick-fil-A, McDonald's, and finally, Burger King.

As for pizza, apparently Papa John's beat out Pizza Hut and Domino's, while Einstein Bagels pushed out Dunkin' Donuts for coffee and quick food.
