This is according to customers, not experts, and it’s not Chipotle. Rich Duprey has details on the fast food place customers think is the healthiest.
If you’re pulling into a White Castle to grab a sack of sliders, chances are you aren’t expecting to find a healthy meal staring back at you in their cardboard carriers. After all, the company ranks last in Consumer Reports latest survey that asks what consumers think of when considering restaurants with healthful meal options.
Which fast food places have the healthiest foods must be a subjective list, right?
For starters, Chipotle Mexican Grill doesn’t even make the top ten. Despite its effort to go GMO-free and antibiotic-free in its meats and serve higher-quality fresh ingredients at reasonable prices, consumers ranked it 13th on a list of 65 restaurants. Not even fast-casual rival Panera Bread topped the charts, instead coming in third place.
Tops on the list is the largest chain in the country. And it’s not McDonald’s.
So what eatery garners the most mindshare for offering healthy options? None other than Subway! A whopping 96% of the consumers surveyed said the sub shop offers healthier options than any other food establishment on the list.
