The fast food company with the best culture? It’s Chick-fil-A, according to popular job website Glassdoor. Chick-fil-A is proud to announce its ranking as a Top Company for Culture and Values, according to anonymous employee feedback shared on jobs site.

The list is GlassDoor’s first report on companies with the best work culture and values. Chick-fil-A ranked seventh and was the only quick-service restaurant named in the list.

Culture and values ratings are gathered through Glassdoor’s online company review survey, which seeks to gain employee sentiment about the work environment and CEO approval rating of their current or recent employers. Employees are asked to rate a number of factors including how satisfied they are with the job and company along with key workplace facets like compensation and benefits, work-life balance and of course, culture and values.

“Cultivating culture takes a tremendous amount of effort both in designing great values and sticking to them,” said Will Staney, head talent warrior at Glassdoor. “To be recognized by employees for these efforts is a true honor and I’m happy to celebrate the companies that have achieved this status today.”

According to GlassDoor, Chick-fil-A and the other top 25 companies share some themes, including having a supportive, team-oriented atmosphere and a family-like environment as well as standing behind company values.
