Good morning,

Get ready to binge on fries and burgers because it’s National Fast Food Day. 

The term “fast food” was first recognized by Merriam-Webster in 1951 and its popularity has only grown all throughout the world. Fast food is generally defined as meals that can be quickly prepared and served and customers can then have a quick dine-in, take-out or use a restaurant’s drive-thru to take-away their meals.

The fast food industry in the U.S. is worth approximately $198.9 billion. Currently, Subway is the largest fast food chain with more than 44,000 restaurants globally, followed by McDonald’s with more than 36,000 restaurants. So indulge today in an extra large fry and a shake — it’s a holiday!
