Back in 2011, it wasn’t as easy as you may think to work for McDonald’s, one of the biggest fast-food chains in the world. In fact, it was even harder than enrolling in one of the most prestigious universities in the country.
7% of the people who applied to Harvard university were accepted. How many people were accepted onto McDonald’s employee list? Only 6.2, which makes the golden arch dream seem further than what it really is.
Chipotle Was Never Meant to Be
When Chipotle founder Steve Ells initially planned to open a dining place, he wanted a fine dining restaurant. He imagined men arriving in suits and ties and never thought he would eventually own a fast food chain. If he had enough money at the time, Chipotle might have never happened.
He established Chipotle, hoping the fast food establishment would earn him enough money to make his fine dining dream come true. However, his burritos were so good and so popular the customers came running back for more.
How many people can make a sandwich at the same time? A lot. According to the Guinness book of records, Subway held the record and had 1,481 people make one of their subs simultaneously. They held that record for two years in a row.
Subway's honorable record was taken away by TangoTab, which had 2,586 people preparing their sandwiches all at once. On your mark, get set...Sub!
IHOP has the best omelets around, all thanks to its surprising ingredients. It is no secret, and the recipe can be found online. They add pancake batter to the omelet mixture, which makes it rich and delicious.
All said and done, this is bad, bad, bad news for gluten-free IHOP lovers, as the egg section on the menu will have to be avoided.

The Bacon Ranch Salad, for example, which aside from lettuce, had a generous helping of crispy chicken, can reach up to 680 calories. The big mac only has 540). So, what is it going to be?
