Each restaurant brand was assigned a Composite Loyalty Index score based on service, food quality, and value.
Papa Murphy's, which differentiates itself by making pizzas for customers to take home and bake themselves, ranked first thanks to high food quality, healthiness, speedy service, and cleanliness ratings. Pizza Ranch ranked second, followed by Papa John's, Domino's, and CiCi's Pizza.

Jason's Deli ranked as the top sandwich chain this year, beating out incumbent Firehouse Subs. Family-owned Jason's Deli has quickly grown to more than 250 locations in nearly 30 states, differentiating itself with a salad bar and a menu focused on healthier food.
