When the urge strikes to eat some pizza, what’s the first chain that comes to mind? Pizza Hut? Domino’s? Papa John’s? Or a smaller chain like Bertucci’s or Marco’s? We’ve rounded up 100 of America’s leading pizza chains and are asking you to vote for your favorites for our eighth annual ranking of America's Favorite Pizza Chains. The polls are open from now until noon on Thursday, Jan. 23, and when they close we’ll know which pizza chain is America’s favorite.
Industry website Pizza Today ranks the top 100 American pizza chains based strictly on gross sales (Domino's takes the win with a whopping $13.5 billion), so we considered that list to be a great jumping-off point. We included every chain on the list, no matter how small (Michigan-based Buddy’s Pizza has just 14 locations) or large (Pizza Hut has more than 18,000) and built those chains into a survey. So go ahead and take the survey, and tell us what your favorites are; you can vote for up to 40 chains.
When you’re voting, take into consideration the entire experience, from convenience to diversity of menu options, the care put into making each pizza, the freshness and quality of the ingredients, the atmosphere and the actual flavor and texture of the pizza itself. After voting ends, we’ll announce the winners the following week.
