Fast Food

  • Fast food is the term given to food that can be prepared and served very quickly.
  • While any meal with low preparation time can be considered to be fast food, typically the term refers to food sold in a restaurant or store with preheated or precooked ingredients, and served to the customer in a packaged form for take-out/take-away.
  • The term "fast food" was recognized in a dictionary by Merriam–Webster in 1951.
  • The capital requirements involved in opening up a non-franchised fast food restaurant are relatively low.
  • Teens between the ages of 13 and 18 purchased 800 to 1,100 calories in an average fast food visit.
