Chick-fil-A is set to become the third-biggest restaurant chain in the United States, only surpassed by McDonald's and Starbucks.

What are the details?

The Wall Street Journal tweeted the news on Wednesday, writing, "Chick-fil-A is poised to become the third-biggest U.S. restaurant chain by sales, trailing only McDonald's and Starbucks."

Chick-fil-A retweeted the news, writing, "It's our pleasure."

The outlet shared a video the same day on its website, explaining how Chick-fil-A was able to rise to such meteoric levels.

Titled, "How Chick-fil-A Got Big by Keeping Its Menu Small Chick-fil-A," the video explained how the restaurant is building its business on "the strength of a simple chicken sandwich."

Some of the reasons The Wall Street Journal attributes to Chick-fil-A's rise include:

  • Simple ingredients
  • Simple menu additions
  • Efficient drive-through performance
  • The company's single-owner franchise system
  • America's taste for chicken has grown, while beef has dropped
  • Increased market share when compared to other chicken-centric restaurant chains
