Ever Wonder How Many People Eat Fast Food?
As you sit in your car in the drive-thru lane waiting for your order to come out the window, have you ever stopped to consider exactly how many people eat fast food? How many restaurants do you pass on your way home? With variety and convenience, restaurant franchising is a guaranteed and lucrative investment.
Did you know that McDonald’s had 390,000 employees in 2007? They also made over $22 million that year. With 31,000 restaurants in nearly 120 countries, it’s no wonder they say “billions served”!
Franchising is a nearly $125 billion annual industry. Although a lot of hard work is required, the payout can be excellent. This is because of how many people eat on the run.
So how many people eat fast food? Over 50,000,000 people daily in the US alone. That’s a lot of burgers and fries! When you need to manage work, school and football training, eating out is more convenient than cooking at home. It’s also an inexpensive way to feed the whole family. Plus, the choices are amazing!
KENTUCKY FRIED CHICKEN – For the chicken lover in the family
MCDONALD’S, BURGER KING- For those who prefer burgers and fries
PIZZA HUT- For the Italian side
TACO BELL- If you’re feeling a little south of the border
And that’s just the tip of the iceberg. There is a fast food restaurant for almost every taste, so even the pickiest eaters can find a place to enjoy a quick and convenient meal. Americans will spend over $110 billion on fast food this year, more than a quarter of all Americans. Most of them have even worked in the FF industry at some point in their lives.
Some people dispute the benefits of eating out in FF franchises, saying it’s unhealthy, high-calorie, and high-fat. But there are also some good spots for eating out. If you are looking for a healthier place to have dinner, there are a few restaurants that serve low-fat and sugar-free meals. Don’t be put off by claims made by naysayers. You will find everything you are looking for in a simple, comfortable and inexpensive restaurant. And with so many to choose from, you’re guaranteed to find what you’re looking for close to home.
A person looking to invest in a business opportunity should really consider a restaurant franchise. With more and more people dining at restaurants and restaurant franchises popping up around the world, this is an industry that shows no signs of slowing down.
With dishes to suit every taste and budget, speed, convenience and meal planning options are as easy as a short drive to your favorite restaurant. Based on how many people eat out, franchising is one of the most lucrative business ventures out there. Remember, franchising is the 21st century’s best kept secret!
