How often do you dine out at quick service restaurants?

Exclusive Premium Statistic

Frequency of dining out at quick service restaurants in the U.S. 2016 This statistic shows the results of a survey conducted in the United States in November 2016. U.S. consumers were asked how often they choose quick service restaurants when dining out. During the survey, 20 percent of the respondents stated that they dined out at quick service restaurants once per week.
Quick service restaurants - additional information

Fast food, typically served in quick service restaurants, has been popular in the United States since the 1950s. While the desire for fast food has since spread worldwide, the U.S. industry is still the largest in the world, generating around 200 billion U.S. dollars per year. In more recent years, the negative health impacts of fast food have come under the spotlight. Concerns are rising over obesity problems and more emphasis is being place on healthy nutrition. That said, the November 2016 Statista survey found that 20 percent of U.S. consumers visited a fast food restaurant at least once a week and 18 percent visited several times per week.

In 2015, the third most popular quick service restaurant among U.S. consumers was In-N-Out Burger, a burger chain founded in California in 1948. Chicken sandwich restaurant Chick-fil-A was also a favorite. Surprisingly, industry leaders such as McDonald’s and Yum! Brands, whose restaurants include KFC, Taco Bell and Pizza Hut, are rarely voted among the most popular. In July 2014, McDonald’s burgers ranked last in a taste rating of 21 popular U.S. burger chains.

Nevertheless, McDonald’s is still the largest and most famous fast food chain in the world. In 2015, the company made 25.41 billion U.S. dollars from its restaurants worldwide.
