Through our proprietary Restaurant Social Media Index, we have been tracking brands across the nation (and will soon expand to international markets, as well) since 2009. Unlike our city-level Top 25 rankings, which are reported on a monthly basis, the National Top 25 Restaurants will be a quarterly installation. Though restaurant brands frequently shift from quarter to quarter, expect to see big brands on this list — although, every once in a while, smaller brands (even some independents) may sneak ahead to the forefront.
Q1 2014 data shows Subway coming in at No. 1 for the very first time, pushing both Chipotle — who topped the rankings in both Q3 and Q4 2013 — and Taco Bell — who topped the rankings in Q1 and Q2 2013 — to the bottom-half of the Top 10.
