Fast food restaurants (or quick service restaurants - QSRs) have changed the way Americans eat. While once the focus was merely on speed, or food served fast to fit with our busy lifestyles, today the QSR business is shifting again, as consumers demand higher quality ingredients and healthier options. While there is a fast food restaurant for just about any type of cuisine, what unites these businesses is a quest for each to offer speedy and uniform service, consistent quality and clean interiors.View Fast Food Franchises

Fast food restaurants, or quick service restaurants, began in the middle of the 20th century serving hamburgers. Today, what started with burgers has grown to many other types of cuisine that cater to busy consumers. Modern consumers still want their food served fast, but now, in addition to broader menu options, they also want a higher level of nutritional quality. Consumers want healthier options, which has resulted in the rise of fast casual restaurants, featuring better quality ingredients and more nutritious menu items.
