According to an annual restaurant industry study from Market Force Information – one of the most cited in the industry – Maggiano’s is America’s Favorite Casual-Dining Chain, winning this year’s title with a composite loyalty index score of 64 percent.
There’s no Maggiano’s in Tarrant County, but you can visit one in either Northpark or at The Shops at Willow Bend in Plano.
The study polled more than 6,000 consumers to understand America’s favorite casual brands in seven categories, such as pizza, breakfast, steakhouse, Italian and seafood. Maggiano’s is the overall champion and topped the charts for the best food and best value, a rare balance in the casual dining segment. Maggiano’s also placed first in the Italian category for the fifth year in a row.
“It’s an incredible honor for Maggiano’s to be named America’s Favorite Casual-Dining Chain,” said Maggiano’s President Kelly C. Baltes. “At Maggiano’s, our passion is to make our Guests feel special, no matter the occasion. The attention to detail that’s executed by each of our talented Executive Chefs is incomparable, ensuring that we always serve the best dish possible. Additionally, all of our Teammates go above and beyond to create a level of service second to none. It’s exciting to know that our Guests appreciate our dedication to exemplary service, craveable food and memorable experiences.”
In 1991, Maggiano’s opened its first location on the corner of Clark Street and Grand Avenue in Chicago. The restaurant was successful from the very beginning, with eager diners sometimes waiting hours for an opportunity to enjoy made-from-scratch recipes passed down through generations. The meals have always been served family-style, making Maggiano’s the go-to destination for special occasions and getting together with family and friends.
