welcome to my blog…

If you think about it, some of your earliest memories are tied to the world of fast food. It may have been going out to eat with your parents and getting a Happy Meal or a birthday party at Burger King.  Or, like me, maybe your first job as a teenager in the early 1990’s was frying hamburgers in the kitchen at your local McDonald’s. I worked for two and a half years doing everything from taking orders at the drive-thru to unloading a truck’s worth of frozen quarterpounders. While it was not something I wanted to do for a career, I didn’t mind working there. I made enough money to buy a car (my reason for the job) and I think I learned a little about having a job in general. But it did leave me with a facination about the history of fast food and it’s place in history. So, here with the help of the this blog, I am going to share with you some of the things I remember when it comes to fast food industry – the promotions, the commercials and all of the other fast food things I come up with. Feel free to chime in with your own stories.
