Analyzing what consumers think

An in-depth look at Consumer Picks

Welcome to First Bite, a Nation’s Restaurant News podcast, your daily source of news from NRN hosted by Holly Petre.

Today, we’re talking about the details behind Consumer Picks.

From value to cleanliness to loyalty, our 2022 Consumer Picks Report in partnership with Datassential covers it all. Each year, Datassential surveys consumers on topics ranging from ambiance to take-out food to register which chains rank at the top. This year, we decided to pull apart the data in a way we never have before into individual galleries and analyze the data in separate deep dives, all done by managing editor Leigh Anne Zinsmeister. Hear more from her on her investigation ahead.

Plus, catch up on all the top news of the day with our daily news recap at the beginning of each episode.
