Abstract

An exploratory study was conducted to examine the impact of product quality and service quality on attitude- and behavior-based brand loyalty for quick-service restaurants. A total of 175 respondents were surveyed. The results showed that quick-service restaurants need to be more concerned with product quality especially in taste, freshness, and temperature, and focus on their overall service quality to build brand loyalty. Moreover, the results from correlation tests show that brand loyalty for one brand may affect brand loyalty towards another brand. The restaurants considered were McDonald's, Burger KingandWendy's.
