National Top 25 Restaurants: Q2 2015

While our monthly Foodable Top 25 Restaurant rankings focus on local markets, our National Top 25, pulled quarterly, reflects the social rankings of the big guys in the game.

Through Foodable Labs, in partnership with our sister company DigitalCoCo’s proprietary Restaurant Social Media Index (RSMI), we track sentiment, engagement, influence, and location-based actions from more than 127 million social restaurant consumers in the U.S. across 17 social platforms. There are currently more than 15,000 restaurant brands indexed in over 430,000 locations. 

While quarterly sales are obviously important, the core of everything in the restaurant & hospitality industry comes down to what consumers are saying — and whether they're taking action — in relation to your brand.

So, without further ado, here are Q2’s top players:
