I don't always use brand, but when I'm tagging a store or restaurant
that I know is part of a large megachain, then I do:


It's not a big deal, as name is not "wrong", brand is just more
precise, but we were discussing "what is the right way to tag this".

Ideally you'd also include the website
(http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Key:website), their address
(addr:city, addr:street and addr:housenumber), phone number for the
store (http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Phone), and store hours
(http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Opening_hours). Also if the
location is certified kosher, you'd add that
(http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Proposed_features/kosher) as well
as  any dietary options for it

Very few people add all this detail, especially all at once, but they do add it.
