To most, Kentucky Fried Chicken is a mid-week treat, a simple and delicious guilty pleasure that doesn’t require any effort and is not even too costly. And to others, it is a Christmas Delight.
Since 1975, the Japanese Kentucky Fried Chicken offer a Christmas special barrel worth $40. This barrel is so popular that they are sometimes sold out before the holiday even begins!
The Almighty Filet-O-Fish
Whenever there is a story behind the creation of a dish, it automatically makes the dish taste better. Here's one about the almighty fish dish served at McDonald's. In 1962, more than 20 years after it was first founded, the Filet-O-Fish was born.
It was created for religious Catholics who didn't eat meat on Fridays. Even today, this dish is very popular, especially during Lent.
All for a Good Cause
Not only did Dave Thomas bring Wendy's to us, but he also brought us this beautiful piece of information. In 1992, Wendy's creator founded the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption. He felt this cause was close to his heart and had to donate and invest as much as possible.
Dave Thomas himself was adopted at a very young age. It is no secret that he is a result of an unplanned encounter that took place one summer eve in Atlantic City.
Around the Clock
Up until 1988, Denny's was known as the 24/7 fast food chain that is always open. For more than 35 years, Denny's always had something to offer. In 1988, the chain decided to give the employees some time off and decided to close its doors for a few hours during the least busy ones. This led to a problem no one thought of.
Because the doors were never locked, the locks were not in use for all those years. New locks had to be installed across all the chain's branches. Closing the restaurants for a few hours cost the chain more than it anticipated.
Outback the Back
Outback Steakhouse is one of the best steak houses that was exported to America from Australia. Well, that is not so true. As it turns out, and despite the false advertisement, Outback Steakhouse is not Australian at all.
Even more, the founders of this chain have never set foot in the land down under. They don't have any authentic Australian dishes on their menu, and they don't even know what Australian food is all about. They just wanted to advertise it that way because it sounded unique.
