An annual survey from surveyed 7,000 U.S. households to determine which of the top 55 largest grocery retailers have the strongest combination of financial performance and consumer emotional sentiment.

Trader Joe’s came in at number one for the second year in a row. Costco Wholesale and Amazon took the number two and three spots.
