Chick-fil-A is the top restaurant for teens, according to a new survey.
Chick-fil-A nuggets are likely one of the reasons the restaurant is a top choice for teens, according to a new survey.

For the fourth consecutive time, Chick-fil-A is the top restaurant for teens, according to a new survey.

The chicken chain topped Starbucks, Chipotle, McDonald’s and Dunkin Donuts in the survey conducted by Piper Jaffray’s 39th semi-annual “Taking Stock With Teens” survey.

Chick-fil-A garnered 18% of the top votes, while Piper Jaffray noted that food “continues to be the No. 1 priority for teens in terms of wallet share.” This is in the face of 32% of teens believing the economy is getting worse.

Also in terms of food, teens named Lay’s potato chips, Goldfish crackers, Cheez-Its, Doritos and Cheetos as their favorite snacks.

Some other findings in the survey included: Nike is tops for clothing brands and footwear. While over half of the respondents picked Amazon as the top shopping website.

And online, teens flock to Instagram and Snapchat, way ahead of Twitter, Facebook and Pinterest.

The survey, which gathers responses from thousands of teens with an average age of 15.8 years, monitors the spending habits and brand loyalties of today’s teens.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
