Wow, does our country ever love fast food! America thrives on this quick and greasy grub. Where did this taste come from? These value meals certainly aren't any kind of fine cuisine by any means. Nor do they offer any nutritional value. However, millions of people can't be wrong, right? Well, that just depends on what you mean by wrong. Regardless of their nutritional value, fast food franchises bring in the bucks. And when I say bring in the bucks; I'm talking billions of bucks. Wouldn't it be sweet to own a few McDonald's restaurants?

I wonder how many people actually consider the restaurant business. This is not a bad career path. The truth is there are certain things in this world that people cannot live without. Two of them are food and alcohol. Therefore fast food franchises can make some serious profit. Even during hard times. Folks always have to eat, you know. The same goes for entertainment. It seems like no matter how broke people are, they still rent movies and go to the movie theater. This is for simple escapism. It's a nice break from reality. Anyway, back to the fast food franchises. I worked at a type of fast food chain when I was in high school. It was a Chinese takeout restaurant owned by my best friend. His father started it as one location on a busy college strip. The business blew up in no time. After all, college kids have to eat and they commonly want it quick. Soon enough my buddy and his family had two restaurants and then four. It became a nice little local chain. Before I knew it, I was employed at one of the fast food franchises. Or at least that's what I called it. No one ever said that fast food franchises had to be burger joints, right?

There's no doubt that fast food franchises will always continue to make tons of cold-hard cash. Then again, maybe the world will one day wise up and stop eating this unhealthy cuisine. The truth is it's killing Americans. Just look at them. Most of them are overweight and out of shape. Of course I could blame all the fast food franchises for this pandemic, but we all know it's up to the individual what he/she eats. Think carefully before choosing that next meal, folks.
