Mangez: The Best of the Chains

Two times every month, Guelph Politico publishes a dine safe guid called Mangez, which takes the latest results from the Wellington-Dufferin-Guelph Health Unit and breaks them down according to which local eateries are perfect, which have some issues, and which aren't serving dinner anymore. Now there are a lot of eateries in town that are part of the same brand or chain, and you maybe wondering, which of them is the best when it comes to their twice-annual inspections? Wonder no more. 

Below is a list of the various chain eateries, shops, and grocery stores around Guelph, and which location has done the best on their inspections. More often than not, this means scoring a zero on critical and non-critical infractions over a period of up to three years, but that's not to say that the rest are pigsties either. Also, you'll note that a lot of the picks below are on Clair, and that's mostly because they are the newest locations with the least number of inspections, so don't hold that against the older establishments. 
Still, if you need to settle a bet, are merely curious, or are looking for somewhere to eat today, these picks are the Best of the Chains.
