Fast Food

White Castle is the oldest burger chain in America. It was started in 1921 by Walter A. Anderson and E.W. Ingram who sold their burgers for 5 cents a piece.

In-N-Out Burger is credited as the first fast food chain to have a two-way speaker system for drive-thru ordering. The original In-N Out Burger opened in 1948 in the Los Angeles area. Until that point, drive-ins with carhops who took your order and delivered your food were the norm.

A Fred DeLuca borrowed $1,000 from his friend Peter Buck to start "Pete's Super Submarines" in Bridgeport, Connecticut. He sold his first sandwich on August 28, 1965. In 1968, the sandwich shop was renamed "Subway" and it is now the largest single-brand restaurant chain and the largest restaurant operator in the world.

McDonalds and Burger King sugar-coat their fries so they will turn golden-brown.

Warm colors such as yellow, orange and red make you hungry - Which is why many fast food restaurants are yellow, orange and red.

American fast food restaurant chain Chick-fil-A is the largest buyer of U.S. peanut oil, since it's what their chicken is fried in.

The average American visits a fast food restaurant six times a month.

About 25% of Americans eat fast food daily in the US.
