Among Fast-Food Restaurants, Subway’s Nutritional Claims Are the “Most Trusted” by Consumers, According to a Nationwide Study by Decision Analyst

Arlington, Texas—More consumers trust Subway’s nutritional claims, compared to all other popular quick service restaurants. According to Decision Analyst, Subway is the leader in consumer trust with almost one-quarter (24.2%) of consumers saying they “completely trust” its nutritional claims.

How much do consumers consider nutrition and healthy choices when they select their fast-food restaurants? This study finds that 42% of Subway customers choose this restaurant because it “has a good selection of healthy items,” compared with only 3% of Taco Bell consumers who select this restaurant for its healthy menu.

“Subway owns the nutritional claim relative to its competition, as there is a significant gap between Subway and these other popular fast food/quick-service restaurants. In fact, Subway is the only one of these restaurants with more people who ‘completely trust’ their nutritional claims than ’do not trust’ them. This finding illustrates the challenges and opportunities facing restaurants in their quest to gain greater acceptance of their health and nutrition efforts,” said Diane Brewton, Senior Vice President of the Market Intelligence Division at Decision Analyst.
