ABSTRACT
This chapter looks at the history and evolution of fast food restaurants in the U.S. It begins by describing how Richard and Maurice McDonald applied Henry Ford's principle for building cars to making food and introduced the Speedee Service System. A few years after, a man named Ray Kroc asked the brothers to sold him the right to open McDonald's franchise. Soon McDonald's restaurants were opening all over the U.S. For years, other fast-food chains copied whatever McDonald's did, and its practices became the standards by which the entire fast-food industry was run.
