Why I’m surprised you didn’t know. The powers that be care. That’s why they set up a special, never-on-the-home-page-where-anti-fast-food-chain-franchise-folks-might-see-them, forum for discussion of such places. I could not possibly care less about whether a place is a chain. I have nothing against chains, unless they have terrible food. I just hate to see the folks in charge having to do the extra work of removing such posts to their proper place.
