For the first time since 1972 Burger King is no longer the No. 2 burger chain behind No. 1 McDonald’s. Dave Thomas’s Wendy’s restaurants became the No. 2-selling hamburger chain in the country last year, pushing Burger King back to the No. 3 spot. In a side note related to the payment system most restaurants accept, for the first time in 50 years MasterCard is no longer the No. 2 credit card, being surpassed in transaction volume by American Express. Visa remains No. 1.
