Fast Food in Europe

If you do yearn for some American fast food, you will find McDonalds in London or a Burger King in Florence, etc. For your morning fix, there’s also Starbucks in some countries. Yes there has been an invasion of American Fast Food into Europe over the past several decades. Some failed early in the 80’s and 90’s and closed but, have er-entered the markets once again.

You can find American brands strategically located near famous tourist areas. Those restaurants hope to lure in American tourist by offering hamburgers and other familiar menu items…very clever. There are also some European fast food chains like Pret-A-Mange (sandwiches & salads) and Paul (coffee & bakery) are interesting responses to major U.S. food chains.
