iconoclasts and self-made men, by entrepreneurs willing to defy conventional opinion…
They worked hard, took risks, and followed their own paths” (6).
The creators did not
intend their original ideas to mutilate into factories of technology, chemical engineering, and
deceit, rather than restaurants.
One can find fast food almost everywhere, it is an extremely profitable business
despite that the food is more synthetic than it has ever been.
One can find it, “At restaurants,
and drive-throughs, at stadiums, airports, zoos, high schools, elementary schools, and
universities, on cruise ships, trains, and airplanes, at K-Marts, Wal-Marts, gas stations, and
even at hospital cafeterias” (Schlosser 3).
These are places people pass by or go to daily,
making fast food highly available.
Because of the plethora of locations, people purchase
more frequently from these restaurants than before, “In 1970, Americans spent about 6
billion on fast food; in 2001, they spent more than $110 billion” (Schlosser 3).
This is a
more than eighteen percent increase in only three decades.
The fast food industry fools its customers with its products’ tastes.
