Teenagers are choosing chicken over coffee, apparently.  

For the first time since 2011, teenagers prefer Chick-fil-A to Starbucks.  That’s according to Piper Jaffray’s semi-annual “Taking Stock with Teens” survey.

Around 9,000 teens from homes with an average income of $68,000 were surveyed. Results show 12 percent of teenagers preferred the chicken joint to the 10 percent who would chose Starbucks. 

McDonald’s came in third, leaving Chipotle, Taco Bell and Olive Garden tying for fourth.

Starbucks may see some more teens on Sundays, at least, since Chick-fil-A's nationwide are closed then.
