bloggers’ favorite chains!

  • About the author EB

In my most recent pitch email to bloggers, I decided to add a fun category to the google form that I ask people to fill out with their requests. I did this to make filling out the form a little less dry but also mostly to amuse myself, and I made answering the question optional. Believe it or not, the question was not about cats. Instead, I asked people to name their favorite chain restaurants. I thought about making a fancy graph or chart to show the results, but let’s face it, I do have actual work to do, so instead you get this very nice list:
