30 Secrets You Probably Didn’t Know About Fast Food

How much thought have you given your fast food eating experience? How much do you really know about your favorite burger place? We all love eating fast food, but there are lots of secrets that we don’t know about our favorite fast food joints. Here are 30 secrets about fast food restaurants that you probably didn’t know.

1. The growth of fast food has been exponential, to say the least. It’s unusual to see mom-and-pop shops, and burgers are usually purchased at a fast food restaurant as opposed to a family diner.  Instead of waiting to be seated and then processing your order, a quick run to the drive through will result in a slightly different — albeit still delicious — burger. Whether it’s a burger, a large serving of fries or just some donuts, fast food restaurants have become a staple in many people’s lifestyles and diets. The first fast food secret on this list has to do with the color fast food restaurants use in their food and advertisements. You might not know it, but colors play a big part in the decision making process when it comes to food. The color scheme that is chosen is used in order to influence your decision-making. The colors red and yellow are meant to entice you to buy food.

2. Yellow and red complement each other perfectly. At a subconscious level, they make you want to stop for a bite to eat. This is sometimes called the ketchup and mustard theory. Red is known to trigger appetite and hunger while drawing attention at the same time. Yellow triggers feelings of cheerfulness and friendliness. The two combined make a perfect match.
