Some people don't need a reason to eat Fast Food because they eat it often anyway. National Fast Food Day is celebrated on November 16 for those who need a reason to pick up a hamburger or French fries or something else while they are away from home.

Origin of the food

The concept of the food isn't anything new. It dates back to thousands of years ago when the Romans sold items on the streets or from small shops. At that time, they included staples such as bread, hot sausages, and wine. The first American Fast Food Restaurant opened in Coney Island, New York in 1867.

The hotdog was the first item that became a big hit immediately. In 1921, White Castle opened and specialized in selling hamburgers.

Restaurants today

Fast food is popular in the United States. Today, there are over 300,000 establishments that cater to every preference. You don't have to drive very far to find one of the popular places where you can get any food you like. Some offer a variety of items, and some specialize in one or two items that sell well. For instance, if you want a hamburger, you go to a place that specializes in that item instead of going to one that sells mostly chicken, fish, or tacos.

The restaurants are a growing business, and managers are constantly thinking of ways to persuade customers to eat there.

They have added breakfast to their menu even though it might have served only lunch items in the past. Some places have begun to serve breakfast all day long. Many establishments now have menus that include healthy and low-fat foods. In order for everyone to be able to afford their products, a budget menu is provided as well as senior citizen discounts.

Popular places

Restaurant chains are all over the world. Some are more popular than others, but all of them have something that most of the population wants. The ranking of these places changes from year to year. Also, the ranking changes when all of them are in the group. For instance, if you put pizza parlors in with donut places and chicken places, you will not get a true rating.

However, if you compare similar places you will get a better ranking.

According to most lists, McDonald's has held the top spot for many years as the most popular fast-food chain in the United States and one of the top chains in the world. Most people don't know that when McDonald's started out in 1940 it sold only barbecue. Eight years later, the business reorganized and began selling hamburgers.

Here are the ten most popular fast food chains ranked by revenue: McDonald's, Subway, Starbucks, Wendy's, Burger King, Taco Bell, Dunkin Donuts, Pizza Hut, Chick-Fil-A, and KFC. Which is your favorite place to eat?
