It is that time of year again. A tradition started last summer has become a sensation to sweep the state. It is Year 2 of the KSR CHAIN RESTAURANT BRACKET. We began this last year and only did Fast Food, which caused a slight degree of controversy. The winner was Qdoba over Subway in the finals, but some believed Qdoba didnt really count as fast food and that led to unneeded controversy. So we decided to make things clearer this year. This season, we are combining ALL chain restaurants, from fast food to high-end casual. It is a mixed bag with lots of odd match ups, but that is what makes America great.
Here is how the field was picked:
1. We took restaurants on the Top 100 biggest chain list and then picked the ones with a heavy presence in Kentucky. Then we added a couple that are bigger here and not nationally (Skyline, Fazolis, etc).
2. We randomly did the bracket with no seeds. Since I will be one of the voters for the winner, it makes no sense to have me seed the field. So I did a random number generator to get the field…no bias, all randomness
3. The winners are based on which restaurants you like more. This isn’t which is the highest quality or the most successful…it is simply, who do you like more. When you do your own bracket with friends and family, that is what rules…nothing more, nothing less.
We will pick the winners over the next two days of KSR Radio. It starts tomorrow…I get a vote, Ryan gets one, Shannon gets one, the crowd at the Tour stop does and if there is a tie, we will go to either a caller or Drew Franklin…scientific, just like it should be.
But the good in this is if you do it for yourself. Who do you like? Who should be the winner? Have at it…the KSR Food Bracket is here Again
