Massachusetts’ most popular pizza chain? You’ll never guess

Do you have a favorite pizzeria, Berkshire County residents? Most people who appreciate the delicious cheesy goodness of a steam pie usually do. Many prefer their pizza of choice from a local company and there is absolutely nothing wrong with that.

If you prefer yours from a national pizza chain, which is your favorite? Is this Pizza Hut? Could it be Papa John’s? Or maybe Domino’s is your stand-by? Here’s something interesting: A company recently did a study of each state’s favorite pizza chains, and Massachusetts’ favorite is…?

I’ll give you a hint. We don’t have this pizza chain in the area…but we used to. According to TOP Agency, a leading market research firm that examines and tracks consumer preferences, the most popular pizza chain in Massachusetts is…Little Caesars!

Remember when we had a Little Caesars on Dalton Ave? I think the closest place is in Albany. Oh, and I think there’s one in Chicopee too. Anyway, to arrive at the results of their study, TOP Agency analyzed GPS data of millions of Americans at major pizza chains in 48 states, excluding Alaska and Hawaii.

Then, with these data results, they were able to determine the top 5 pizza chains in each state. On top of that, TOP Agency also randomly surveyed 1,000 people to find out how they liked their pizza best.

It goes without saying that interesting results have been obtained. The endless debate over pineapple as a pizza topping? It’s pretty close, but the majority still says “NO!” 54% of respondents said pineapple has no place on pizza.

Here are the top 5 favorite pizza chains in the Bay State:

  1. Little Caesars
  2. Dominos Pizza
  3. Marco’s Pizza (What about Berkshire County? Is it good? I’ve never tried it.)
  4. Daddy Johns
  5. Papa Murphy’s (another one I haven’t tasted yet.)

Let’s take a look at the other favorites of the New England pizza chain, shall we? Rhode Island’s choice is Domino’s. Connecticut’s top pick is Papa John’s. Pizza Hut was #1 for New Hampshire and Vermont. While Maine sided with Massachusetts, it opted for Little Caesar’s. By the way, Little Caesars was the first choice for 16 of the 48 states.
