White Castle

Prva lokacija Bijelog dvorca otvorena je 1921. godine u Wichiti, Kan., Što ga čini originalnim američkim lancem burgera brze hrane. Osnivač Bill Ingram iskoristio je 700 dolara za otvaranje početne lokacije i počeo posluživati ​​klizače za potpis lanca. Iduće godine otvoren je drugi Bijeli dvorac u El Doradu, Kan., A do 1924. godine Ingram je proširio lanac na Omahu, Neb. I Kansas City, Mo.

Burger King

Prethodnika ovog mega-lanca hamburgera prvobitno su osnovali 1953. u Jacksonvilleu, Florida, rođaci Keith J. Kramer i Matthew Burns. Odlučili su nazvati svoju prvu lokaciju Insta-Burger King zbog brojlera koje su kupili za kuhanje hamburgera, nazvane Insta-Broilers. Sljedeće godine James McLamore i David Edgerton počeli su otvarati Insta-Burger franšize u Miamiju-zamijenili su Insta-Broilers sistemom plamenih brojlera po kojem je Burger King poznat. Zbog finansijskih poteškoća, Kramer i Burns su 1959. godine prodali kompaniju McLamoreu i Edgertonu; kasnije su lanac preimenovali u Burger King.

Carl's Jr.

1941. Carl Karcher i njegova supruga Margaret kupili su kolica za hot-dog u Anaheimu u Kaliforniji. Karchersi su tada počeli otvarati lokacije Carl's Jr., koje uključuju skraćenu verziju Drive-In izbornika, a također su i manje (otuda Jr.).

Chick-fil-A

Patuljasta kuća (izvorno The Dwarf Grill) započeo je 1946. godine u Hapevilleu, Ga., kada su "mladić po imenu Truett Cathy i njegov brat Ben udružili svoju ušteđevinu, prodali svoj automobil i uzeli kredit kako bi došli do 10.000 dolara za otvaranje Patuljka" Roštilj. " Imala je 10 radnih stolica i četiri stola. Do sredine šezdesetih godina Cathy je otvorila pregršt drugih lokacija patuljastih kuća i proširila se na brojne lokacije Chick-fil-A u trgovačkim centrima širom Georgije.

KFC

Godine 1930. za vrijeme Velike depresije, Harlan Sanders otvorio je svoj prvi restoran na benzinskoj pumpi u Corbinu u Kaliforniji, pod nazivom Sander’s Court & Café. Do 1952. godine pukovnik je započeo franšizni posao sa pečenim piletinom.

McDonald's

1940. braća Mac i Dick McDonald otvorili su McDonald's Bar-B-Que u San Bernardinu, Kalifornija .; osam godina kasnije odlučili su obnoviti koncept restorana kako bi zadovoljili svoju najprofitabilniju jelovnicu, hamburgere - restoran su preimenovali u McDonald's. Godine 1954. prodavač Multimixera Ray Kroc posjetio je restoran i bio je oduševljen efikasnim sistemom koji su razvila braća McDonald's; započeo je franšizing brenda i kupio kompaniju godinu dana kasnije.

Starbucks

Prvi Starbucks otvoren je na pijaci Pike Place u Seattleu 1971. godine; ime je inspirisano klasičnim romanom Hermana Melvillea Moby-Dick. Od početka, Starbucks je uvozio zrna kave sa različitih lokacija širom svijeta. 1976. godine kafić se preselio ulicom na novu lokaciju.

Podzemna

Ideja za Subway inspirisana je odlukom osnivača Freda DeLuce da otvori prodavnicu sendviča kako bi pomogao u plaćanju školovanja na medicinskoj školi. Ideja za otvaranje radnje potekla je od dr. Peter Buck -a, koji je pozajmio DeLuci 1.000 dolara za otvaranje originalne lokacije sendvič radnje u Bridgeportu, Conn., 1965. godine i postao njegov poslovni partner. Prva trgovina zvala se Pete's Super Submarines, a tek 1968. lanac je dobio ime Subway.

Taco Bell

Inspirisan braćom McDonald’s, Glen Bell je otvorio burger sa sličnim modelom. Međutim, nakon što su drugi počeli hvatati tu ideju, Bell je odlučio osmisliti svježi koncept jelovnika. Počeo je prodavati hrskave tacose s kombinacijom meksičkih sastojaka dizajniranih da zadovolje američko nepce u svom novom restoranu Taco Tia u Downeyu u Kaliforniji 1954. Bell je odlučio proširiti marku na različite stavke menija i nazvao je novu koncept Taco Bell.

Wendy's

Dave Thomas otvorio je prvu Wendynu lokaciju 15. novembra 1969. u Columbusu, Ohio. Sljedeće godine Thomas je otvorio drugu lokaciju marke, ovaj put dodajući prozor za preuzimanje kroz pogon. Od početka, lanac je služio svojim prepoznatljivim četvrtastim hamburgerima i milkshakeovima.


Burger King poziva svoje kupce da naruče od McDonaldsa

Dok se Velika Britanija suočava s drugim zatvaranjem, Burger King je pozvao britansku javnost da nastavi naručivati ​​hranu u svim prodajnim mjestima.

Dok se Velika Britanija sprema da se suoči sa još četiri sedmice zatvaranja, Burger King je učinio nešto što je mislio da nikada neće učiniti.

Epidemija COVID-19 rezultirala je time da je 2020. postala jedna od najznačajnijih godina u modernoj istoriji. Nekoliko mjeseci je cijeli svijet bio zatvoren. Ljudima je savjetovano da ostanu kod kuće kako bi spriječili širenje virusa i da odlaze samo kada je to krajnje potrebno. Samo na odlazak na posao ako je u ključnoj ulozi, ili po hranu i zalihe.

To je značilo privremeno zatvaranje barova i restorana u mnogim dijelovima svijeta. Oni koji su mogli nastavili su nuditi usluge dostave, uključujući brojne lance brze hrane u Velikoj Britaniji. Dok zemlja zuri u cijev drugog zaključavanja, koje će početi kasnije ove sedmice, Burger King je izdao saopćenje za koje nitko nije mislio da će ga vidjeti.

Naslov izjave glasi "naručivanje iz McDonald'sa". Tako je, etablirana kompanija brze hrane aktivno potiče kupce da kupuju od svog rivala broj jedan. I ostatak njegovih rivala po tom pitanju. Kasnije je u izjavi Burger King spomenuo i Pizza Hut, Subway, Taco Bell i brojne druge suparničke restorane. On čak i označava nekoliko manje poznatih lanaca burgera u Velikoj Britaniji u sljedećem tweetu.

Znamo, nismo ni mislili da ćemo ovo reći. pic.twitter.com/cVRMSLSDq6

& mdash Burger King (@BurgerKingUK) 2. novembra 2020

Ovo nije menadžer društvenih medija Burger Kinga koji će dobiti otkaz i nanijeti najveću štetu na izlazu. To je zapravo vrlo pametan marketinški potez sa strane BK. Cilj izjave nije otjerati vlastite kupce u teoretsko naručje suparničkog restorana. Namjera mu je ohrabriti britansku javnost da nastavi koristiti njihove usluge, kao i sve ostale tokom drugog zatvaranja.

"Postavljanje Whopper -a uvijek je najbolje, ali naručivanje Big Maca također nije tako loša stvar", stoji na kraju izjave. Vjerojatno je pošteno reći da ni Burger King ni McDonald's neće patiti dovoljno da neće premostiti drugu stranu ovoga. Ipak, to je ipak lijepa gesta Burger Kinga. Pitamo se hoće li McDonald's odgovoriti sličnom porukom.


Da li Taco Bell poslužuje i#8216Gradu D, ali jestivo i#8217 meso?

TVRDITI

Rating

Kako bi zaštitili javnost od bolesti uzrokovanih hranom, mesne proizvode (grupu koja uključuje govedinu, svinjetinu, janjetinu i teletinu) koji se prodaju u SAD -u pregledava Služba za sigurnost i inspekciju hrane (FSIS), agencija američkog ministarstva poljoprivrede (USDA), kako bi se osiguralo da ispunjavaju američke standarde sigurnosti hrane radi sigurnosti, korisnosti i tačnosti označavanja u skladu sa Federalnim zakonom o inspekciji mesa (FMIA). Međutim, FSIS ne “ocjenjuje” meso kao dio standardnog inspekcijskog procesa: inspekcija je strogo prolazan/neuspješan sistem, a mesni proizvodi ili prolaze ili se odbacuju kao neprikladni. Ne postoje vrste mesa "ocjena D, ali jestive" ili "samo za hranu za kućne ljubimce".

Ako proizvođač mesa želi, on can neka njegove proizvode ocijeni USDA ocjenjivač, koji će ih dodijeliti u jednu od osam kategorija: Prime, Choice, Select, Standard, Commercial, Utility, Cutter i Canner. Prema USDA:

Ocjene USDA Prime, Choice, Select i Standard dolaze od mlađe junetine. Najvišu ocjenu, USDA Prime, uglavnom koriste hoteli i restorani, ali se mala količina prodaje na maloprodajnim tržištima. Najviše se prodaje ocjena USDA Choice.

Govedina standardnog i komercijalnog kvaliteta često se prodaje kao nerazvrstano ili kao meso “robne marke”.

Tri niža razreda - USDA Utility, Cutter i Canner - rijetko se, ako ikad, prodaju u trgovinama, ali se umjesto toga koriste za proizvodnju mljevenog goveđeg mesa i drugih mesnih proizvoda, poput fraka.

Ovaj postupak ocjenjivanja nije obavezan, pa čak je i meso dodijeljeno najnižim ocjenama savršeno jestivo. Očigledno je da su neki rezovi i ocjene mesa ukusniji ili hranjiviji - i stoga privlačniji (i skuplji) potrošačima - ali svaki mesni proizvod koji prođe USDA inspekciju certificiran je kao prikladan za prehranu ljudi. Bilo koje meso koje ne prođe osnovni postupak inspekcije USDA -e se odbacuje i ne označava se kao „proizvod niske kvalitete, ali jestiv“ ili „samo hrana za kućne ljubimce“.

Štaviše, pojam da se meso označava kao „ocjena D, ali jestivo“ u suprotnosti je sa cijelim konceptom ocjenjivanja. "Stupanj D, ali jestiv" značilo bi da je neko meso razreda D prikladno za prehranu ljudi, a neko nije - ali koja bi bila svrha stvaranja ocjene
klasifikacija hrane koja nije imala primarnu funkciju razlikovanja jestivog od nejestivog proizvoda?

Da su zaista postojale dvije vrste niskokvalitetnog mesa (tj. "Stupnja D"), vrsta koja nije prikladna za prehranu ljudi bila bi označena izrazito različitim ocjenama (poput "stupnja F") kako bi se izbjegla svaka mogućnost zabune između dva. Poput bilješke koju je nepošteni pogođeni vozač ostavio iza sebe u drugoj poznatoj legendi, oznaka "Stupanj D, ali jestiva" je zaplet, izmišljeni detalj neophodan za učinkovito prepričavanje priče, a ne nešto što bi bilo naišao u stvarnom životu.

Nesumnjivo je izvor ove legende rasprostranjenost kartona prehrambenih proizvoda s oznakom "Samo za institucionalnu upotrebu" koji se obično nalaze u objektima za pripremu velikog broja obroka (npr. Restorani, bolnice, škole, zatvori, vojne baze), što ima oznaku pogrešno protumačeno da znači da su proizvodi sadržani u tim kartonima podstandardni. Oznaka "Samo za institucionalnu upotrebu" nema nikakve veze s kvalitetom, međutim to je pokazatelj da je sadržaj kartona zapakiran i rasprodan za institucionalnu upotrebu pa su stoga izuzeti od saveznih zahtjeva za označavanje koji bi se inače primjenjivali ako se taj sadržaj prodavali su se pojedinačno potrošačima u domaćinstvu. (Na primjer, od prehrambenih proizvoda koji se prodaju za institucionalnu upotrebu možda neće biti potrebno da na svakom pakiranju nose podatke o nutritivnoj vrijednosti, kao što bi bilo da se prodaju na policama trgovina.)

U središtu ove legende su dvije teme: pripremljena jela koja poslužuju institucije ili zalogajnice brze hrane nemaju tako dobar ukus kao ona koja se poslužuju kod kuće, te mladost, obrazovne ambicije, neuspjeli kriminal ili odlučnost da večerate po jeftinoj hrani. ostavite jednog na milost i nemilost kulinarski beskrupuloznog. Određena razina nelagode uvijek je povezana s povjeravanjem pripreme onoga što jedemo strancima, o čemu svjedoče mnoge legende o kontaminaciji hrane koje su u opticaju, ali općenito ova anksioznost ne čini ništa više nego tiho proždire u pozadini sve dok hrana koju jedemo posluživanje je prilično ukusno i čini se da nije promijenjeno. Međutim, kad ukus izađe kroz prozor ili kad nešto izgleda loše, počinjemo se pitati što se zaista događa u toj kuhinji, često se okrećući izmišljenim objašnjenjima kako bismo objasnili nedostatak između naših očekivanja i onoga što smo poslužili. Zbog toga se institucionalna ili restoranska ponuda koja nema tako dobar ukus kao domaća kuhinja pripisuje tome što je napravljena od nekvalitetnih sastojaka, a ne kao proizvod masovne proizvodnje.

Slično, kad prodavaonica brze hrane može ponuditi jelovnike jeftinije nego što mislimo da bi ih trebali moći prodati, tražimo objašnjenja koja nadilaze moć masovne kupovine, naime, da moraju biti vrhunski u kvaliteti sastojaka. Zbog dražesno niskih cijena Taco Bell -a, legenda "Grade D, ali jestiva" vezana je za taj lanac brze hrane više nego za bilo koji drugi (iako je ukazivan i na McDonald's i Subway).

Da, zdrava brza hrana je moguća. Ali jestivo?

Kad je moja kći bila tinejdžerka, prije desetak godina, prošla je kroz vegetarijansku fazu. Tada je isplata za posjete ortodonta bilo putovanje u Taco Bell, gdje smo jedino mogli jesti burritos i tacos od pasulja. To mi nije bio omiljeni obrok, ali kašasti pasulj u toj mekanoj tortilji ili hrskavoj ljusci djelovao je nekako umirujuće, a slatki "ljuti" umak učinio je iskustvo dovoljno pristojnim. Obično sam ispolirao dva ili tri.

Mislio sam na one stanice Taco Bell -a tokom nedavne sedmice putovanja. Odlučio sam, kao način da izbjegnem zamke aerodromske hrane, biti vegan tokom cijelog putovanja. Ovo nije lako. Kad sam stigao do terminala C u Dallasu/Fort Worthu, nisam mogao podnijeti još jednu Veggie Delite iz podzemne željeznice, lošu nasjeckanu salatu na bijednom kruhu. Tako sam zalutao do Taco Bell Expressa nasuprot kapije 14 i optimistično upitao blagajnicu mogu li dobiti burrito od graha bez sira ili pavlake. Istaknuo je ugao na vrhu ekrana gdje je meni „freska“ ponudio pico de gallo umjesto mliječnih proizvoda, a zatim me prodao na višeslojnom buritotu od graha na „fresci“ za oko 3 dolara. Dok je pričao, kupci s moje desne i lijeve strane, oboje fit, ljudi u odijelu, koji su izražavali glad i rezigniranost, oživjeli su. Ni oni nisu bili svjesni fresko menija. Jedan je pokušavao "zdravo se hraniti na putu", drugi je pokušao "imati djecu vegana". Kao i mene, zaintrigirao ih je burrito brze hrane s oko 350 kalorija, ili upola manje od zdjele Fiesta Taco salate. Ni to nije bilo loše.

Dvanaest godina nakon objavljivanja “Fast Food Nation -a” i otprilike isto toliko dugo otkako se Morgan Spurlock skoro pojeo do smrti, naš odnos s brzom hranom se promijenio. Prešli smo od faze zviždača do faze većih očekivanja, a neka od tih očekivanja su ispunjena. Različite države donijele su mjere za ograničavanje zatočenja domaćih životinja. In-N-Out Burger je pokazao da ne morate potplaćivati ​​svoje zaposlenike da biste bili profitabilni. Postoje desetine biljnih alternativa mesu, a sve više ih je na putu, prilično su dobre.

Ispunjenje ovih očekivanja dovelo je do većih. Moje iskustvo na aerodromu samo je potvrdilo ono što sam godinama čuo od analitičara u industriji brze hrane. Nakon uspjeha kompanija poput Whole Foodsa i zdravih (ili teoretski zdravih) marki poput Annie's i Kashi, sada postoji tržište za lanac brze hrane koji nije samo zdrav, već je vegetarijanski, održiv, pa čak i human. A ovo je brza hrana: jeftina. "To je značajno i vjerujem da dolazi iz želje potrošača da imaju izbor i veću ravnotežu", kaže Andy Barish, analitičar restorana u Jefferies LLC, investicionoj banci. "I to više nisu samo obale."

Ne govorim o simboličnim gestama, poput McDonald's voća i jogurta, čije kalorije čine više od 50 posto šećera. I ne očekujem da će se cijene podudarati s cenama Taco Bell -a ili McDonald's -a, gdje ekonomija obima i jeftini sastojci obroke čine jeftinima. Ono što bih volio je mjesto koje služi samo dobre mogućnosti, gdje se ne morate oduprijeti nezdravoj hrani da biste dobro naručili, i gdje je hrana prava - pod tim mislim na jela koja općenito sadrže malo sastojaka i koja su prepoznatljiva svi, ne samo prehrambeni tehnolozi. To je mjesto gdje je nešto poput hamburgera od crnog graha naslaganog povrćem i pečenim pomfritom od slatkog krumpira-i, dovraga, možda čak i veganski šejk-manje od 10 dolara i 800 kalorija (a znatno manje bez shakea). Kad bih to mogao naručiti i pojesti za 15 minuta, bio bih sretan, a mislim da bi i mnogi drugi bili. Možete isprobati moje recepte za brzi, niskokalorični hamburger, pomfrit i shake.

Posljednjih godina industrija brze hrane počela je uvažavati ove nove zahtjeve. Milijarde dolara uloženo je u zdravije opcije brze hrane, a financijski poticaji opravdavaju ove izdatke. Otprilike polovica svega novca potrošenog na hranu u Sjedinjenim Državama odnosi se na obroke koji se jedu izvan kuće. A prošle godine McDonald's je zaradio 5,5 milijardi dolara dobiti na 88 milijardi dolara prodaje. Kad bi konkurent ponudio zdraviju opciju koja bi uspjela osvojiti samo jedan posto tog tržišnog udjela, zaradio bi 55 miliona dolara. Chipotle, najbolji novajlija posljednje generacije, uspješno je pobijedio taj 1 posto. Prošle godine prodaja se približila 3 milijarde dolara. U četvrtom tromjesečju porasle su za 17 posto u odnosu na isti period prethodne godine.

Brojeve je teško odrediti za zdravije opcije jer industrija brze hrane još nema kategoriju "zdrava". Industrija naziva McDonald's i Burger King "restoranima sa brzom uslugom" Chipotle je "fast casual", a restorane u kojima naručite na šalteru i hranu vam donose ponekad nazivaju "premium fast casual". Restorani iz ovih različitih sektora često negiraju ove razlike, ali QSR, časopis za industrijsku trgovinu-“Ograničene usluge, neograničene mogućnosti”-troši dosta prostora na njihovo seciranje.

Međutim, nakon decenija jedenja, imam svoje. Prvo, postoje mjesta na kojima se služi bezvrijedno, bez obzira na vrstu furnira koji predstavljaju. Podzemna željeznica, Taco Bell (možda sam pristran prema njima, ali zaista ...), McDonald's i njima slični čine sektor neželjene hrane. Jedan korak dalje su mjesta s boljim ambijentom i možda boljim sastojcima - Shake Shack, Five Guys, Starbucks, Pret a Manger - koja takođe prodaju nezdravu hranu, ali uspijevaju natjerati goste da se osjećaju bolje ako je jedu, bilo zato što je boljeg okusa, okružena neke zdrave opcije, okruženje je grooviernije ili koriste neke organske ili održive sastojke. Ovo je sektor smeća Nouveau.

Chipotle kombinira najbolje aspekte Nouveau Junk -a kako bi stvorio novu kategoriju koju bismo mogli nazvati Poboljšana brza hrana. U Chipotleu je hrana svježija i ima mnogo bolji okus od tradicionalne brze hrane. Nabava, proizvodnja i kuhanje općenito su na višem nivou, a cjelokupno iskustvo ugodnije. Gvakamol se zaista pravi u prostorijama, a piletina (koliko god bila neukusna) kuha se pred vašim očima. Tamo je prilično jednostavno jesti vegansko, ali ti burito mogu napuniti kalorije. Kao što mi je konkurent rekao, „Nekoliko marki imalo je početak [osnivača Chipotlea Stevea] Ellsa, ali on ih je udario kulturom i kvalitetom. Nije otrcano za meksičku hranu na traci za kuhanje na pari. Trenutno bi moglo vrijediti 10 milijardi dolara. " (TO JE.)

Chipotle više ne stoji sam u svijetu poboljšane brze hrane: Chop't, Maoz, Freshii, Zoës Kitchen i nekoliko drugih imaju svoje jake strane. I - poput Chipotle - svi imaju svoja ograničenja, počevši od kalorija i masti. Nudeći prženu piletinu i prženi luk pored organskog tofua, Chop't, lanac salata u New Yorku i Washingtonu, iskušava kupce da pretvore ono što je moglo biti zdravo jelo u kalorijsku bombu (da ne govorimo o neukusnom preljevu) , i često podiže cijenu na 12 USD ili više. Holandski Maoz nije loš, ali nije ni toliko dobar kao famafel kamioni i prodavnice mama-and-pop koji se nalaze po cijelom Manhattanu. Jedva da postoje bilo kakvi izbori, ništa se ne kuha po narudžbi, pita je spužva, a postoji i neuredna postavka za posluživanje koja čini da obrok od 10 dolara izgleda kao da ste pokvareni.

Unatoč nedostacima, poboljšana brza hrana prijelazni je korak u novu kategoriju restorana brze hrane čija bi praksa trebala biti još bliža održivoj, a obroci razumno zdravi, dobrog okusa i jeftini. (Možda nije McDonald's-jeftin, ali ispod 10 USD.) Ova nova kategorija je, ili će biti, Dobra brza hrana, a već postoji nekoliko novih kandidata.

Veggie Grill je a šestogodišnji lanac sa 18 lokacija u Los Angelesu. Tehnički, spada u kategoriju “premium fast casual”. Restorani su ugodno dizajnirani i lijepo osvijetljeni te nude ograničenu uslugu. Hrana je strogo veganska, iako je možda isprva niste znali.

Kevin Boylan i T. K. Pillan, osnivači lanca, i sami su vegani. Svoju hranu često nazivaju „poznatom“ i „američkom“, ali to je diskutabilno. "Chickin" u sendviču "Santa Fe Crispy Chickin" je Gardein, proizvod na bazi soje koji je postao zadaća za operatere brze hrane koji traže zamjene za meso. Iako su u pripremi bolji proizvodi, Gardein, posebno pržen, ima manje -više okus po McNugget -u (koji nije u potpunosti "prava" piletina). “Sir” je Daiya, na bazi tapioke i po ukusu sličan pasterizovanom američkom siru. “Biftek”, “karne asada”, “rakov kolač” (moj omiljeni) i “hamburger” su takođe soja, u kombinaciji sa proteinima pšenice i graška. U smislu dobrobiti životinja, štete po okoliš i korištenja resursa, ovi su proizvodi veliki koraci u pravom smjeru. Oni štede životinje, vodu, energiju i zemlju.

Boylan mi je htio pojasniti da se njegov lanac ne odnosi na visoku kuhinju. "Ne jedemo prženi tempeh sa smanjenjem breskve da-da-da", rekao je. “To može biti odlična stavka na jelovniku, ali većina ljudi ne zna o čemu se radi. Kad kažemo 'cheeseburger' - ili 'prženo pile' s pire krompirom sa umakom i keljom na pari - svi znaju o čemu govorimo. " Vjerovatno je u pravu, a i povrće je prilično dobro. Pire krompir seče sa 40 posto karfiola, umak se pravi od vrganja, a predjelo možete staviti na podlogu od kelja umjesto u lepinju.

Kad sam tek ušao na Veggie Grill, očekivao sam da će soba puna mršavih vegana govoriti o svojoj veganici. Umjesto toga, na lokacijama u Hollywoodu, El Segundu i Westwoodu linije su mogle biti bilo gdje, čak i na aerodromu Taco Bell. Večere su izgledale pomiješane po klasi i težini, i zasigurno su izgledale kao svejedi, što uglavnom i jesu. Istraživanje kompanije pokazuje da oko 70 posto njegovih kupaca jede meso ili ribu, što se čini i u meniju i u trenutnom uspjehu. Veggie Grill osvojio je najbolji američki restoran u anketi čitalaca Los Angeles Timesa 2012. godine, a prodaja je porasla za 16 posto u postojećim trgovinama u odnosu na prošlu godinu. Plan je udvostručiti tih 18 lokacija svakih 18 mjeseci u doglednoj budućnosti - "dovoljno brzo da ostane ispred konkurencije, ali ne tako brzo da izgubimo našu kulturnu DNK", rekao je Boylan. Osnivači su 2011. godine doveli novog C.E.O. -a, Grega Dollarhydea, koji je pomogao Baja Fresh -u da postane nacionalni lanac prije prodaje Wendy's -u za gotovo 300 miliona dolara.

Veggie Grill djelomično preuzima Brentwood Associates, mala tvrtka za privatni kapital koja ulaže u različite potrošačke poslove, uključujući Zoës Kitchen, lanac koji nudi ćevape, dinstani pasulj i pečeno povrće. "Da bi se firma poput nas uključila u koncept kao što je Veggie Grill, moramo vjerovati da je to profitabilan poslovni model, a to i činimo", rekao mi je Brentwoodov direktor Rahul Aggarwal. “Prije deset godina rekao bih da nijedan veganski restoran neće biti uspješan, ali ljudi traže različite načine prehrane i ovo je sjajan koncept.”

Divim se Veggie Grill -u, ali iako pravljenje "chickina" od soje nije zločin, ipak je daleko od prave hrane. Imam dugogodišnju raspravu s odanim prijateljima veganima, koji kažu da Amerikanci nisu spremni za pirinač i pasulj, ni paprikaš od slanutka i špinata, te da mjesta poput Veggie Grilla nude prijelaz na životinjski i ekološki prihvatljivije hrana. Na jednom nivou, slažem se. Zašto hraniti žito izmučenim životinjama kako bi proizveli loše meso, kada možete prerađivati ​​zrno i proizvoditi ga u "meso"? Na drugom nivou, cilj bi trebao biti i brza hrana koja je prava hrana.

Veći dio onoga što sam jeo u Veggie Grillu bio je pržen i gust, pa čak i kad se nisam prejeo, osjećao sam se nakon toga jednako teško kao i nakon što sam jeo u lancu neželjene hrane. I dok taj sendvič sa hrskavom piletinom Santa Fe sa zelenom salatom, rajčicom, crvenim lukom, avokadom i veganskim majonezom ima 550 kalorija, 200 manje od sendviča s piletinom Burger King's, pileći sendvič košta 9 dolara. Tendercrisp košta 5 dolara, i to u Midtownu na Manhattanu.

Budući rast trebao bi omogućiti Veggie Grillu da snizi cijene, ali možda nikada neće biti moguće potrošiti manje od 10 dolara na obrok. Dio te cijene je i usluga: u Veggie Grill -u naručite, nabavite broj koji ćete staviti na stol i čekati server. To je luksuz u usporedbi s većinom lanaca i ugodan je, ali kombinacija hrane nije sasvim stvarna i cijena je još uvijek previsoka znači da Veggie Grill nije skočio na dobru brzu hranu.

Za moje vreme u Los Angelesu sam jeo i u kafiću Native Foods, veganskom lancu sličnom Veggie Grill -u, gdje se može nabaviti prilično dobra podloga od „mesnih okruglica“ (od seitana, oblika pšeničnog glutena), i u Tender Greens -u, koji, iako je u stilu kafeterije (pomislite na Chipotle s velikim euro-kalifornijskim menijem), flertuje s oznakom od 20 dolara za obrok. Ne može se smatrati brzom hranom, ali prilično je sjajna i volio bih vidjeti da isključuje Applebee's i Olive Garden.

U Culver City -ju sam posjetio Lyfe Kitchen (to je “Love Your Food Everyday” koji znam, ali nastavite čitati). Lyfe ima pedigre, meni, finansiranje, plan i ambicije da preuzme glavne lance. Kompanija pokušava izgraditi 250 lokacija u sljedećih pet godina, a QSR se već pitao hoće li to postati „cjelovita hrana brze hrane“.

U Lyfeu, kolačići su bez mliječnih proizvoda, goveđe meso potiče od pastirskih, humano uzgojenih krava, ništa ne teži više od 600 kalorija i nema maslaca, vrhnja, bijelog šećera, bijelog brašna, kukuruznog sirupa s visokim sadržajem fruktoze ili trans masti. Koncept je zamisao bivšeg izvršnog i investicijskog bankara Gardeina Stephena Sidwella, koji je brzo angažirao Mikea Robertsa, bivšeg globalnog predsjednika McDonald'sa, i Mikea Donahuea, šefa korporativnih komunikacija McDonald'sa u SAD -u. Ovo troje se udružilo s Art Smithom, Oprainim bivšim kuharom i Talom Ronnenom, za kojeg vjerujem da je među najambicioznijim i najtalentovanijim veganskim kuharima u zemlji.

Prema Robertsu, Lyfe trenutno ima više od 250 anđeoskih investitora koji „predstavljaju grupu ljudi koji govore:„ Čekali smo ovako nešto. “Operacija Culver City otvorena je početkom ove godine i još dvije lokacije u Kaliforniji planirano je otvaranje prije isteka godine. Lokacije u New Yorku se aktivno istražuju, a franšiza u Chicagu je u izradi.

Kad sam posjetio operaciju Culver City, malo prije službenog otvaranja, probao sam po jelovniku i otišao impresioniran. Postoje četiri male, kreativne pizze sa pogačom ispod 10 USD, jedna je veganska, dvije su vegetarijanske, a jedna je pripremljena s piletinom. Okusio sam sjajne salate, poput one od repe i farra (9 dolara) koja bi lako mogla proći kao predjelo u dobrom restoranu, i izbor doručka, poput zobene kaše izrezane na čelik s jogurtom i pravog javorovog sirupa (5 dolara) i obloga od tofua (6,50 USD), bili su zaista ukusni.

Lyfe, za razliku od života, nije jeftin. Vlasnici tvrde da je prosječni ček "oko 15 USD", ali jedno jelo (pečeni losos, bok choy, šitake gljive, miso itd.) Košta tačno 15 USD. Zdjela "drevnih žitarica" ​​s Gardein "goveđim savjetima" košta 12 dolara, što se čini previše. Ipak, losos je dobar, a zdjela je ukusna, kao i rižoto od tikvica napravljen s farrom koji košta 9 dolara - ili cijenu sendviča s “čičinom” u Veggie Grillu ili nekoliko sendviča Tendercrisp u Burger Kingu.

Kako uopće, pitao sam Robertsa i Donahuea, mogu li očekivati ​​da će pokrenuti 250 franšiza koje poslužuju to jelo od lososa ili rižoto ili njihovo pečeno prokulicu, za koju se nadaju da će je pretvoriti u pomfrit 21. stoljeća? Donahue je priznao da će to biti izazov, ali ništa što tehnologija nije mogla riješiti. Lyfe će se oslanjati na digitalno preuzimanje narudžbi, G.P.S. lokacija korisnika - podmetač će vašem poslužitelju reći gdje sjedite - online naručivanje i mobilne aplikacije. Programirane, vrhunske kombinirane pećnice spremaju recepte, kuhaju na vlažnoj ili suhoj vrućini i zaista uklanjaju nagađanja iz kuhanja. Sistem za praćenje narudžbi govori kuharima kada trebaju početi s pripremom različitih dijelova jela i zahtijeva njihov unos tek na kraju svake narudžbe. Gotovo sve aktivnosti se prate u stvarnom vremenu, što pomaže menadžerima da nesmetano vode stvari.

Lyfe nije vegan, koliko proteinski agnostik. Možete nabaviti Gardein hamburger ili goveđi hamburger na travi, „neprženu“ piletinu ili Gardein „pile“. Možete nabaviti i vino (biodinamičko), pivo (organsko) ili smoothie od banane od kelja boljeg nego što zvuči. Međutim, bojim se da će Lyfeova ambicija i njen raznoliki jelovnik povećati troškove opreme i radne snage te da će ti troškovi spriječiti lanac da privuče manje imućne Amerikance. You can get a lot done in a franchise system, but its main virtues are locating the most popular dishes, focusing on their preparation and streamlining the process. My hope is that Lyfe will evolve, as all businesses do, by a process of trial and error, and be successful enough that they have a real impact on the way we think of fast food.

Veggie Grill, Lyfe Kitchen, Tender Greens and others have solved the challenge of bringing formerly upscale, plant-based foods to more of a mass audience. But the industry seems to be focused on a niche group that you might call the health-aware sector of the population. (If you’re reading this article, you’re probably in it.) Whole Foods has proved that you can build a publicly traded business, with $16 billion in market capitalization, by appealing to this niche. But fast food is, at its core, a class issue. Many people rely on that Tendercrisp because they need to, and our country’s fast-food problem won’t be solved — no matter how much innovation in vegan options or high-tech ovens — until the prices come down and this niche sector is no longer niche.

It was this idea that led me, a few years ago, to try to start a fast-food chain of my own, modeled after Chipotle. I wanted to focus on Mediterranean food, largely on plant-based options like falafel, hummus, chopped salad, grilled vegetables and maybe a tagine or ratatouille. I wanted to prioritize sustainability, minimize meat and eliminate soda, and I’d treat and pay workers fairly. But after chatting with a few fast-food veterans, I soon recognized just how quixotic my ideas seemed. Anyone with industry experience would want to add more meat, sell Coke and take advantage of both workers and customers to maximize profits. I lost my stomach for the project before I even really began, but recent trends suggest that there may have been hope had I stuck to my guns. Soda consumption is down meat consumption is down sales of organic foods are up more people are expressing concern about G.M.O.s, additives, pesticides and animal welfare. The lines out the door — first at Chipotle and now at Maoz, Chop’t, Tender Greens and Veggie Grill — don’t lie. According to a report in Advertising Age, McDonald’s no longer ranks in the top 10 favorite restaurants of Millennials, a group that comprises as many as 80 million people. Vegans looking for a quick fix after the orthodontist have plenty of choices.

Good Fast Food doesn’t need to be vegan or even vegetarian it just ought to be real, whole food. The best word to describe a wise contemporary diet is flexitarian, which is nothing more than intelligent omnivorism. There are probably millions of people who now eat this way, including me. My own style, which has worked for me for six years, is to eat a vegan diet before 6 p.m. and then allow myself pretty much whatever I want for dinner. This flexibility avoids junk and emphasizes plants, and Lyfe Kitchen, which offers both “chickin” and chicken — plus beans, vegetables and grains in their whole forms (all for under 600 calories per dish) — comes closest to this ideal. But the menu offers too much, the service raises prices too high and speed is going to be an issue. My advice would be to skip the service and the wine, make a limited menu with big flavors and a few treats and keep it as cheap as you can. Of course, there are huge players who could do this almost instantaneously. But the best thing they seem able to come up with is the McWrap or the fresco menu.

In the meantime, I’m throwing out a few recipes to the entire fast-food world to help build a case that it’s possible use real ingredients to create relatively inexpensive, low-calorie, meat-free, protein-dense, inexpensive fast food. If anyone with the desire can produce this stuff in a home kitchen, then industry veterans financed by private equity firms should be able to produce it at scale in a fraction of the time and at a fraction of the price. You think people won’t eat it? There’s a lot of evidence that suggests otherwise.


Healthy Fast Food

Is there any healthy fast food items? You will discover the answer to that question in this survey.

Picture this: you're on a long road trip in the middle of nowhere, are pressed for time, and are starving. The only restaurants within any convenience are at the major highway stops. You know that fast food will hurt your diet, but there's no other food options.

You've been in this situation before. You suck it up, order a burger, fries, and soda combo, and get back on the road. You shrug your shoulders, and tell yourself it's ok and you'll prepare better next time.

The problem is, next time is the same as this time. You wish there was healthy fast food options to make eating on the road a little less terrifying.

Lucky for you, there are healthy fast food options. You just have to know what they are.

This survey will tell you the healthiest entrees, salads, fries, and breakfast items to choose when your best food options are fast food chains.

Menu items from the largest fast food chains in America: Burger King, Chik-fil-a, McDonald's, Subway, Taco Bell, and Wendy's, were considered in this survey. Items were compared against each other for calories, fat, carbohydrates, and protein and the top healthiest items in each category are listed as a guide for you when choosing healthy fast food options.

Healthiest Entree

Winner: Chik-fil-a Grilled Nuggets (8 count)

Runner-up: Subway Turkey Breast (6-inch sub)

If you guessed that a burger would not be one of the healthier options for an entree, you were right. Chik-fil-A scored the top spot for healthiest entree with their 8-count grilled nuggets. Not surprisingly, Subway has the 2nd healthiest food option with the Turkey Breast sub. In fact, Subway holds 7 of the top 10 spots for healthiest entrees from fast food restaurants.

Healthiest Salad

Winner: Subway Black Forest Ham and Subway Turkey Breast

Runner-up: Subway Roast Beef

Subway has long been known as a fast food chain dedicated to providing healthy food options. Their salads are some of the healthiest you can find, from any restaurant. Just remember to choose a light dressing for your salad. Red wine vinegar mixed with mustard is a tasty and fat-free delight.

Healthiest Fries

I cringe to call fries from any fast food restaurant "healthy". They're not healthy, but the fries from BK and MickeyD's are less fattening than the rest. If you crave fries, choose a smaller size to minimize the damage.

Healthiest Breakfast

Winner: McDonald's Egg White Delight

Runner-up: Chik-fil-a Sunflower Multigrain Bagel w/ Cream Cheese

McDonald's was the first fast food chain to offer breakfast, and they are the first to offer a great healthy option. The Egg White Delight is as healthy a mix of calories, fat, carbs, and protein as you can make at home. Although just a bit higher in calories than the Chik-fil-a Multigrain Bagel, Chik-fil-a's Egg White Grill is another contender for the healthiest fast food breakfast.

Zaključak:

Healthy fast food options are limited for sure. But for people like us who are conscious of what we put in our bodies, it's important to know what to eat when we're destined for fast food. Hopefully this survey will help you to make healthy decisions with fast food options.


McDonald's, Subway, Taco Bell — Where Were They Born? - Recepti

McDonald's Signature Crafted Mushroom & Swiss Burger features a quarter pound fresh-beef patty, seasoned mushrooms, creamy bistro aioli, Swiss cheese, and crispy onion strings on a toasted artisan roll.

There were some good-sized sliced mushrooms in my burger. They were tender and added a nice flavor. That flavor was enhanced by the bistro aioli, which offered a creamy, savory base tinged with mushroom and garlic notes.

The onion strings are the same as can be found in the Bacon Smokehouse Signature Crafted sandwiches and layer on some season onion-y crunch. They're actually pretty good out of the burger as well (why are seasoned onion strings/rings not a thing?).

The Swiss cheese got mostly lost in the mix given it's mild quality but has an enjoyable taste if you nibble at the edges (or pinch off a piece).

The beef patty was moist with a coarse grind that comes apart more easily when compared to McDonald's frozen patties (the ones in the regular hamburger and its variants as well as the Big Mac). The bun was soft but not too soft with a dense crumb.

Taken altogether, McDonald's Signature Crafted Mushroom & Swiss Burger turned out really well. The crispy onions in particular keep it interesting while the mushroom and Swiss are solid.

Sadržaj

Taco Bell was founded by Glen Bell, an entrepreneur who first opened a hot dog stand called Bell's Drive-In in San Bernardino, California in 1948. Bell watched long lines of customers at a Mexican restaurant called the Mitla Cafe, located across the street, which became famous among residents for its hard-shelled tacos. Bell attempted to reverse-engineer the recipe, and eventually the owners allowed him to see how the tacos were made. He took what he had learned and opened a new stand in 1951. The name underwent several changes, from Taco-Tia through El Taco, before settling on Taco Bell. [5]

Glen Bell opened the first Taco Bell in 1962 in Downey, California. [6]

In 1964, the first franchisee opened, in Torrance, California. In 1967, the 100th restaurant opened at 400 South Brookhurst in Anaheim. The first location east of the Mississippi River opened in Springfield, Ohio in 1968. [7] [6] Original Taco Bells featured walk-up windows only, with no indoor seating or drive-thru service. In 1970, Taco Bell went public with 325 restaurants.

PepsiCo subsidiary

In 1978, PepsiCo purchased Taco Bell from Glen Bell. [6] On November 19, 2015, the original Taco Bell building in Downey was moved to the Taco Bell Corporate Headquarters in Irvine, California. [8] Several locations in the Midwestern United States were converted from Zantigo, a Minneapolis, Minnesota-based Mexican chain which PepsiCo acquired in 1986. [9] In 1990, the Hot 'n Now chain was acquired. [10] Taco Bell sold Hot 'n Now to a Connecticut company in 1997. [11]

In 1991, Taco Bell opened the first Taco Bell Express in San Francisco. [12] Taco Bell Express locations operate primarily inside convenience stores, truck stops, shopping malls, and airports. Taco Bell began co-branding with KFC in 1995 when the first such co-brand opened in Clayton, North Carolina. [13] The chain has since co-branded with Pizza Hut [14] and Long John Silver's as well. [15]

In 1997, PepsiCo experimented with a new "fresh grill" concept, opening at least one Border Bell restaurant in Mountain View, California on El Camino Real (SR 82). Close to the time that PepsiCo spun off its restaurant business in 1997, [16] the Border Bell in Mountain View was closed and converted to a Taco Bell restaurant which was still open in 2018. [17]

In September 2000, up to $50 million worth of Taco Bell-branded shells were recalled from supermarkets. [18] The shells contained a variety of genetically modified corn called StarLink that was not approved for human consumption. [19] StarLink was approved only for use in animal feed because of questions about whether it can cause allergic reactions in people. [20] It was the first-ever recall of genetically modified food (GMO). Corn was not segregated at grain elevators and the miller in Texas did not order that type. [21] In 2001, Tricon Global announced a $60 million settlement with the suppliers. They stated that it would go to Taco Bell franchisees and TGR would not take any of it. [22]

Yum! Brands subsidiary

PepsiCo spun out Taco Bell and its other restaurant chains in late 1997 in Tricon Global Restaurants. [23] [24] With the purchase of Yorkshire Global Restaurants, the owners of A&W and Long John Silver's chains, Tricon changed its name to Yum! Brands on May 16, 2002. [25] [26]

In March 2005, the Coalition of Immokalee Workers (CIW) won a landmark victory in its national boycott of Taco Bell for human rights. Taco Bell agreed to meet all the coalition's demands to improve wages and working conditions for Florida tomato pickers in its supply chain. [27] After four years of boycott, Taco Bell and Yum! Brands agreed to make an agreement called the CIW-Yum agreement with representatives of CIW at Yum! Brands headquarters. [28]

Taco Bell began experimenting with fast-casual and urban concepts when it created U.S. Taco Co. and Urban Taproom in 2014. The menu consisted of tacos with American fillings, and did not sell the food sold in Taco Bell restaurants such as burritos. It was launched in Huntington Beach, California in August 2014. [29] U.S. Taco Co. closed on September 15, 2015 so the company could focus on its new similar Taco Bell Cantina concept, which featured special menu items and served alcohol. It opened its first location a few days later in Chicago's Wicker Park neighborhood, followed by a location in San Francisco about a month later, located less than a block away from AT&T Park. [30] In 2016, Taco Bell launched the Taco Bell Cantina flagship store located on the Las Vegas strip. [31] The 24-hour restaurant serves alcohol, unique menu items, and features a DJ. It was announced in August 2017 that the store would begin hosting weddings. [32] Taco Bell Cantina currently has locations in San Francisco, Berkeley, Chicago (2 locations), Las Vegas, Austin, Fayetteville, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Atlanta, Newport Beach, San Diego, San Jose, and plans to open soon in Somerville, MA. [33] [34] In March 2020, Taco Bell announced that it would be converting 3 of its suburban stores into Cantinas this year as part of a test run. [35]

In March 2016, Taco Bell introduced private beta testing of an artificial intelligence bot on the messaging platform Slack designed to take orders of select menu items from local Taco Bell locations and have the orders delivered. Taco Bell plans to have a wider roll-out of this functionality in the coming months. [36]

Previously, Taco Bell's hot sauces were only available in sauce packets at the Taco Bell chain itself. In February 2014, Taco Bell made its hot sauces available for purchase, sold in bottle form at grocery stores. [37] These would be followed by further grocery store products including chips in May 2018 [38] and shredded cheese in 2019. [39] In September 2016, Taco Bell opened a pop-up in New York City in the SoHo, Manhattan area called the Taco Bell VR Arcade. Taco Bell and VR fans could demo PlayStation VR, games, and food. [40]

In 2016, Taco Bell built a restaurant out of five cargo shipping containers for the Texas music festival, South by Southwest. Due to popularity, the franchise decided to move the restaurant to a lot in South Gate, California, and it opened to the public a year later. The restaurant features Taco Bell's full menu, with outdoor seating, a walk-up window, and a drive-thru, but no indoor seating unlike regular Taco Bell locations. [41] Taco Bell announced plans in November 2017 to open 300 more urban and Cantina-style locations by 2022, with 50 to be located about New York City's five boroughs. [42] In 2019 Taco Bell opened a pop-up hotel called "The Bell: A Taco Bell Hotel and Resort" which opened for one weekend in August. Upon the announcement the hotel was booked up in two minutes [43]

Taco Bell announced plans to stay in its current corporate headquarters until 2030. [44]

In March 2001, Taco Bell announced a promotion to coincide with the re-entry of the Mir space station. They towed a large target out into the Pacific Ocean, announcing that if the target was hit by a falling piece of Mir, every person in the United States would be entitled to a free Taco Bell taco. The company bought a sizable insurance policy for this gamble. [45] No piece of the station struck the target.

In 2004, a local Taco Bell franchisee bought the naming rights to the Boise State Pavilion in Boise, Idaho and renamed the stadium Taco Bell Arena. [46] Also, in 2004, Mountain Dew offered Taco Bell stores the exclusive right to carry Mountain Dew Baja Blast, a tropical-lime-flavored variety of the popular soft drink. [47]

In 2007, Taco Bell first offered the "Steal a Base, Steal a Taco" promotion—if any player from either team stole a base in the World Series, the company would give away free tacos to everyone in the United States in a campaign similar to the Mir promotion, albeit with a much higher likelihood of being realized. [48] After Jacoby Ellsbury of the Boston Red Sox stole a base in Game 2, the company made good on the promotion on October 30, 2007. The promotion has been offered in several World Series, most recently in 2020, with Mookie Betts of the Los Angeles Dodgers successfully stealing a base in Game 1. [49]

Taco Bell sponsors a promotion at home games for both the Portland Trail Blazers and the Cleveland Cavaliers in which everyone in attendance receives a coupon for a free Chalupa if the home team scores 100 points or more. [50] [51]

In 2009, Taco Bell introduced a music video style commercial entitled "It's all about the Roosevelts" composed and produced by Danny de Matos at his studio for Amber Music on behalf of DraftFCB Agency. Featuring, Varsity Fanclub's Bobby Edner, the rap music style commercial shows a group of friends gathering change as they drive toward Taco Bell. The commercial represents Taco Bell's first foray into movie theater advertising, featuring the ad during the opening previews of Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen i Public Enemies as well as screens in some movie theater lobbies. [52]

On July 1, 2009, Taco Bell replaced 20-year sponsor McDonald's as the fast-food partner of the NBA. Taco Bell and the NBA agreed on a 4-year deal allowing them to advertise on ABC, TNT and ESPN, and NBA-themed promotions. [53] On July 21, 2009, Gidget, the Chihuahua featured in Taco Bell ads in the late 1990s, was euthanized after suffering a stroke. [54] She was 15 years old. 2009 commercials for the "Frutista Freeze" frozen drink feature Snowball, an Eleonora cockatoo noted for his ability to dance to human music. [55] In an effort to promote its $2 Meal Deals, Taco Bell started a Facebook group in June 2010 to collect signatures on a petition that appeals to the Federal Reserve to produce more two-dollar bills. [56]

A large advertising push by Taco Bell was begun in late February 2011 in response to a consumer protection lawsuit filed against the company by an Alabama law firm. The promotion sought to counter allegations that the company falsely advertised the ratio of ingredients in its beef filling for its tacos. The spots featured employees and franchisees stating that the filling has always been a mixture of 88% beef and various spices and binders and nothing else. The ad followed several full-page print ads in the New York Times and other newspapers that featured the headline "Thank you for suing us." [57] Additionally, the chain added a new social campaign using Twitter and Facebook. The company invested heavily in the campaign, spending more than $3 million (USD) putting out its message—about 20 percent more than the company usually spends on an advertising program. The various campaigns came shortly before the company began its official response to the suit in the United States District Court for the Central District of California and were designed to bring public opinion into their camp. Various analysts stated that the company would have been better off using a grass-root campaign that involved in store advertising and other non-broadcast media. [58] The suit was eventually withdrawn, [59] and the company continued its advertising response by publicly requesting an apology from the suing firm of Beasley Allen. Analyst Laura Ries, of marketing strategy firm Ries & Ries, stated she believed Taco Bell's latest response was a mistake. She commented that reviving memories of a suit that the majority of the public had forgotten after the initial burst of publicity was the wrong strategy from Taco Bell. [60]

In March 2012, Taco Bell teamed up with Frito-Lay and created the Doritos Locos Tacos, which is a taco with a Dorito Nacho Cheese flavored taco shell. [61] Taco Bell is releasing a Mountain Dew infused drink called Mountain Dew A.M. [62]

On June 6, 2012, Taco Bell announced it would be testing a new "Cantina Menu" with upscale items in their Kentucky and California restaurants. The new menu was created by celebrity chef Lorena Garcia, and featured the addition of: Black Beans Cilantro Rice Citrus & Herb Marinated Chicken and Cilantro Dressing. [63] [64]

The Cool Ranch Doritos Taco, became available to order on March 7, 2013. [65] Shortly before its release, Taco Bell launched a promotion advertising that fans could get the new flavor at its stores a day early if they "just asked" on March 6. However, they neglected to inform the majority of their stores of this – leading to numerous complaints on its social media accounts and news sites from disappointed consumers who were unable to obtain the new taco. [66] [67]

On July 23, 2013, Taco Bell announced they were discontinuing the sale of kids' meals and accompanying toys at all of their U.S.–based restaurants by January 2014. Some outlets ceased their sale as early as July 2013. [68]

On August 6, 2013, the chain announced it was expanding its test market of "Waffle Tacos" to ≈100 restaurants in Fresno, California, Omaha, Nebraska and Chattanooga, Tennessee, beginning on August 8 of that year. The Waffle Taco included scrambled eggs, sausage, and a side of syrup. It was the top–selling item during breakfast hours at the five Southern California restaurants where they had been test–released earlier in 2013. [69] The breakfast menu started on March 27, 2014. Other items include: the A.M. Crunchwrap, Cinnabon Delights, Breakfast Burrito, A.M. Grilled Sausage Flatbread Melt, Hash Browns, Coffee and Orange Juice. [70] The ad–campaign, which began March 27, used twenty-five men who were named Ronald McDonald, a reference to the famous clown mascot of McDonald's. [71] Another commercial advertisement for the Waffle Taco, features the narrator singing, "I've been eating Egg McMuffins since 1984. But when I saw Taco Bell made a Waffle Taco, I figured I would get with the times" set to the tune of "Old MacDonald Had a Farm"— another shot at McDonald's. [72]

On April 28, 2014, Taco Bell ridiculed McDonald's for its "out–dated muffins", in a breakfast campaign devised by Taylor. [73] The advertisement stated the claim that the McMuffin belonged in 1984. [72] [74] [75] In October 2014, Taco Bell launched the Pink Strawberry Starburst Freeze beverage for a limited time. [76] In August 2016, Taco Bell brought back its Pink Strawberry Starburst Freeze. [77] In October 2015, Taco Bell launched a certified vegetarian menu. [78]

In August 2016, Taco Bell announced it would begin testing a mashup known as Cheetos Burritos at select Taco Bell restaurants [79] On September 19, 2016, Taco Bell launched Airheads Freeze, a drink inspired by the candy Airheads White Mystery, and allow people to guess its flavor on social media. [80] On September 15, 2016, Taco Bell introduced the Cheddar Habanero Quesarito, a quesadilla shelled burrito. [81] In April 2017, Taco Bell announced that it will begin testing the Naked Breakfast Taco in Flint, Michigan in mid-April. The breakfast taco, which uses a fried egg as the shell for potato bites, nacho cheese, shredded cheddar, and bacon or sausage crumble. [82] [83]

In 2017, the company released the Naked Chicken Chalupa that uses a chalupa shell made from chicken, using a similar idea to the Double Down and later that year the Naked Chicken Chips, which are chicken nuggets shaped like chips with nacho cheese. [84]

In July 2017, Taco Bell announced a partnership with Lyft in which Lyft passengers in Orange County, California can request "Taco Mode" on their way to their destination from 9 PM-2 AM, having a stop at Taco Bell. The program was cancelled after much negative feedback from drivers. [85]

On September 21, 2018, Taco Bell announced National Taco Day celebrating its global reach outside of the United States, to be celebrated in 20 countries. [86]

In January 2019, Taco Bell nearly doubled its television advertising spending to US$64 million. [87]

In September 2019, Taco Bell revamped their menu, for the Fall Season. [88]

In January 2021, Taco Bell announced the return of potatoes to the menu after a brief discontinuation in August 2020 in efforts to streamline processes in their restaurants in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. In addition to the potatoes, the company had announced plans to expand their vegetarian menu by introducing Beyond Meat as a plant-based vegetarian customization option. [89]

In April 2021, Taco Bell said that it will start reusing hot sauce packets in partnership with the recycling company TerraCycle, aiming to reduce the environmental pollution. [90]

Dollar Cravings

On August 18, 2014, Taco Bell launched a new value menu called Dollar Cravings. [91] [92] [93] [94] Replacing the old Why Pay More menu, Dollar Cravings currently contains thirteen food items all priced at a United States dollar. [93] [94] [95] [96] [97]

It was renamed "Cravings Value Menu", when prices were increased on some of the items. In April 2019, they introduced a "loaded nacho taco" for a dollar. [98] [99]

Discontinued menu items

One of Taco Bell's original 1960s menu items was the Chiliburger, later known as the Bell Burger, then the Bell Beefer. This was a loose meat sandwich with taco-seasoned ground beef, shredded cheese and lettuce, diced onions and tomato with mild red sauce, served on a steamed hamburger bun. The sandwich was removed from the menu sometime in the late 1980s to keep a strictly Tex Mex-inspired line up. [100]

Other discontinued items include: Enchirito (name revived for a different menu item) Taco Lite Taco Grande Chilito (Chili Cheese Burrito) Beefy Crunch Burrito Beefy Melt Burrito Seafood Salad Chicken Fiesta Burrito Potatorito Volcano Taco BLT Taco Cheesarito Cinnamon Crispas Nacho Crunch Grilled Stuft Burrito Chicken Caesar Grilled Stuft Burrito Grilled Stuft Nacho Fully Loaded Nachos Spicy Chicken Crunchwrap Supreme [101] Blackjack Taco Bean Burrito Especial Border Ices and the Meximelt. [102]

In September 2019, Taco Bell made new changes to its menu. Items discontinued from there, include: Beefy Mini Quesadilla Chips and Salsa Chipotle Chicken Loaded Griller Double Decker® Taco Cool Ranch and Fiery Doritos® Locos Tacos Double Tostada Power Menu Burrito, and the XXL Grilled Stuft Burrito. [88]

As of August 13, 2020 [update] , the menu underwent another update, discontinuing the following items: Grilled Steak Soft Taco 7-Layer Burrito Nachos Supreme Beefy Fritos Burrito Spicy Tostada Triple Layer Nachos Cheesy Fiesta Potatoes Loaded Grillers, both Cheesy Potato and Beefy Nacho Chips & Dips and Mini Skillet Bowl.

Mcdonalds, Burger king, Taco Bell, or Wendys. Which fast food place is the best?

We used to have Wendys in the UK 30 years ago and they were great. Square burgers and unlimited salad bar. Not seen one since the 80s.
KFC is best in UK, Wimpy close second (but they are rare these days)

In 'n out and Carls Jr are the least shitty for this junk food

In McDonald's, I like the fries, the milkshakes and the breakfast menus. Was in BK once, the burger was decent, but nothing to write home about. And I don't think the other two exist in my country.

Does Subway count as a fast food place? I like Subway.

as a vegetarian, my options in fast food places are . minimal. to say the least. that being said, Dairy Queen has fantastic soft serve.

due to this, I prefer less conventional fast food places, like subway, Taco Time, Taco del Mar, etc. places where I can actually get food :P

Burger King for me. I like a Whopper, and I like their fries better than anybody else's.

There is a Wendy's on the way to work, but after 15 years of having Wendy's a few times a month, I'm burned out on them. Besides, they just changed the kind of buns they use, and the tops fall apart.

I like Big Macs, but there's a problem. I don't know if this is a corporate policy or what, but in the 17 years I've lived in the US, I have been unable to get a Big Mac that's hot enough to melt the slice of cheese on it. And I end up getting food poisoning from eating meat that has sat out at or near room temperature for a length of time. I only went maybe twice or three times a year, and it was never any different. So I don't eat there anymore.

Iɽ much rather have an Italian grinder from Which Wich. It's the best sub I know of that isn't the kind they make at Publix supermarket deli.


McDonald's, Subway, Taco Bell — Where Were They Born? - Recepti

McDonald's McSkillet Burrito with Sausage is the big brother to the Dollar Menu Sausage Burrito and features scrambled eggs, potatoes, onions, roasted green peppers and red peppers, a sausage patty, shredded Cheddar and Jack cheese, a slice of American cheese, and a spicy salsa roja (red salsa) wrapped in a flour tortilla.

At a little more than 8 ounces, it's the largest single breakfast item on McDonald's morning menu and costs $2.79.

Another way to describe a McSkillet Burrito would be to say that it's like a BK Breakfast Bowl wrapped in a tortilla but not as good. While the tortilla does make it easy to eat on the go, I could do without the extra carbs in the morning.

It's a little bit different from the $1 Sausage Burrito beyond being bigger in that it has potatoes, shredded cheese, and the Salsa Roja. The sausage patty also comes as a whole patty torn into two in Angus Snack Wrap fashion.
You can see the colors red and green are sorely lacking here.
The salsa roja is the main flavor of the McSkillet Burrito mostly because whoever made my burrito went a little crazy with the sauce gun. They call it a salsa roja but it tastes like hot sauce with some diced tomatoes thrown in it's tart with a medium amount of heat. It's the spiciest item I've tried on the McDonald's menu although if the Jalapeno Cheddar McChicken ever goes national, I might think differently.

The salsa roja pretty much covered up most of the flavors of the McSkillet Burrito. I could taste the sausage and American cheese occasionally but didn't really taste any peppers or Cheddar/Jack cheese. Also, somehow what little potatoes and veggies I had in my burrito ended up on one end. The eggs were nice and fluffy though.

If I were to suggest improvements, I would say less salsa roja, more shredded cheese, red and green peppers, and a dash of black pepper for added flavor. The McSkillet Burrito is one of those things you can probably make better and more easily at home in an actual skillet. You'd also get more value out of two Sausage Burritos.

Burger King Is Urging Its Customers To Order From McDonald's

As the UK faces its second lockdown, Burger King has urged the British public to keep ordering food throughout, from all outlets.

As the UK prepares to face another four weeks of lockdown, Burger King has done something it thought it would never do.

The COVID-19 outbreak has resulted in 2020 becoming one of the most significant years in modern history. For a few months, pretty much the entire world was plunged into lockdown. People were advised to stay at home to prevent the spread of the virus and to only leave when absolutely necessary. Only to leave for work if in a key role, or to get food and supplies.

That meant the temporary closure of bars and restaurants in many parts of the world. Those who could continued to offer delivery services, including a number of fast-food chains in the UK. As the country stares down the barrel of a second lockdown, which will start later this week, Burger King has issued a statement that no one thought they would ever see.

The title of the statement reads "order from McDonald's". That's right, the established fast-food firm is actively encouraging customers to buy from its number one rival. And the rest of its rivals for that matter. Later on in the statement Burger King also mentioned Pizza Hut, Subway, Taco Bell, and a number of other rival eateries. It even tags a few less-famous UK burger chains in a follow-up tweet.

We know, we never thought we’d be saying this either. pic.twitter.com/cVRMSLSDq6

&mdash Burger King (@BurgerKingUK) November 2, 2020

This isn't Burger King's social media manager getting fired and doing as much damage as they possibly can on their way out the door. It's actually a very smart marketing move on BK's part. The aim of the statement is not to drive its own customers away and into the theoretical arms of a rival restaurant. Its intent is to encourage the British public to continue using their services, as well as everybody else's during the second lockdown.

" G etting a Whopper is always best, but ordering a Big Mac is also not such a bad thing," the end of the statement reads. It's probably fair to say that neither Burger King nor McDonald's will suffer enough that they won't make it out the other side of this. It is still a nice gesture on Burger King's part, though. We wonder if McDonald's will reply with a similar message.
