Top-10 most popular fast-food restaurants


hamburger_cExperian Simmons, a company that researches consumer-related issues, recently released a five-year study on the fast-food industry and found that, when it comes to McDonald's, we're still lovin' it.

By Jill Kelley

McDonald's continues to be the most frequented fast-food restaurant, with Burger King coming in at No. 2.

Subway has been climbing the ranks, though, while Taco Bell and Wendy's have been losing a little ground in the last couple years.

The study included more fringe fast-foodies such as Panera Bread, Chipotle and Pizza Hut, and noted that Chipotle, Panera and Jamba Juice (which has no listed sites in Ohio) have made big strides in the last few years.

The top 10 on their list for 2010 were, in this order:

1. McDonald's

2. Burger King

3. Subway

4. Taco Bell

5. Wendy's

6. KFC

7. Pizza Hut

8. Arby's

9. Other

10. Dairy Queen
