The fast-food sector has become a critical part of the U.S. food industry. It has answered the needs of a changing society in which the time allocated to “refill the tank” has incrementally decreased with increasing levels of workplace productivity. Working America’s habits of eating fast, eating cheap, eating while working, and eating low-quality food are part of broadly identified health issues in the United States. Fast food will not disappear despite slowed growth of certain segments of the industry in recent years, but the question is, can fast food improve its image by providing better food? More than any other segment of the industry, the fast-food segment has seen unprecedented development over the last 70 years. It has also played a major role in obesity issues and bad eating habits in the United States.
