If we don't trust someone, they aren't usually people we want to keep in our lives. The same goes for companies. We aren't going to want to do business with a place that we don't trust.

I found a survey by Clarify Capital that looked at the most and least trusted industries and then the most trusted and least trusted businesses in each across the country. It was really interesting to look at!

A place that we definitely want to trust if we're going to do business with them is a restaurant. They're handling the food we're about to put into our body, we kind of want to trust them.

Before we move on to the most trusted restaurants in the country, let's take a peek at which restaurants are the LEAST trustworthy.

Least Trustworthy Restaurants in Minnesota

Minnesota has locations of all three of the least trustworthy restaurants. The third least trustworthy according to this survey surprised me a bit because I really enjoy going here and I don't have any issues. That restaurant would be Panera.

I have nothing against Pizza Hut but I was definitely surprised to see them in the top spot. I guess I just haven't heard anything from them in a while so they weren't top of mind to me. But congrats to them!
