The fourth annual "2014 Temkin Experience Ratings" reveals quite a few New Jersey companies dominated the top spots.
The Temkin Experience Ratings are based on three components of experience: functional, accessible, and emotional.
Here's the list of the N.J. companies that made the ranks:
The study was based off of 10,000 U.S. consumers. H.E.B., Trader Joe's, Chick-fil-A and Publix earned the highest scores.
According to the report, the 2014 Temkin Experience Ratings were based on consumer feedback on their recent interactions with companies. It asked consumers to rate three components of the experience, functional, accessible and emotional, on a 7-point scale. For each component, it took the percentage of consumers that gave a rating of 6 or 7 and subtracted the percentage that gave a rating of 1, 2 or 3. This resulted in a "net goodness" rating for each of the three components. The overall Temkin Experience Rating is an average of the three "net goodness" percentages.
