Some of these brands have their branches in many other countries while others don’t. So let’s see if these fast food restaurants are also in your area in case you might want to try them.

1Burger King

People know Burger King, and many of us love the restaurant. Its headquarter is in Florida, and it has more than 15,738 outlets in over 100 countries in the world. The founders had their way of making unique burgers, and that is why the quality still stands today.

2Carl’s Jr.

Carl Karcher and his wife were the founders of this fast food restaurant back in 1945. Beginning with just a hot dog cart in 1941, they improved and developed their technique and open the restaurant 4 years after. Today, there are more than 3,700 franchised and company-operated restaurants in both the United States and other countries worldwide.

3Chipotle Mexican Grill

Chipotle is probably the only fast food restaurant with a lot of food poisoning outbreaks in the U.S. It also has branches in other countries as well including the UK, France, and Germany. By 2015, Chipotle has more than 2,000 locations which was a great success. However, there have been concerns regarding food safety in this restaurant since 2008. Hopefully, things go better despite those problems.

4Dunkin’ Donuts

We wouldn’t call donuts “fast food”, but since it is among the best let’s include them in. Founded in 1950, Dunkin’ Donuts keeps on growing as it expands to more than 12,000 restaurants in 36 different countries. There is a variety of donuts of course, and there are also other bakery goods, sandwiches, and beverages as well.


Kentucky Fried Chicken, my personal favorite place to go has more than 20,000 locations in 123 countries globally. The restaurant itself is not only famous for finger-lickin’ good chicken but also burgers. As in my country, KFC is one of the best places that students and family love to go on weekends and holidays. Somewhere with great food to eat while talking with friends, KFC it is.

Americans know Pizza Hut so well, and this restaurant has more than 15,000 locations globally. The restaurant serves American-Italian dishes like penne pasta, chicken Pomodoro, toasted sandwiches, etc. The look of Pizza Hut varies in different countries, but the quality is just as good as each other.


Here we have the fast food restaurant franchise that is famous for selling submarine sandwiches and salads. By the end of 2016, the brand already has 44,882 restaurants in 112 countries around the world. It is also known as the world’s largest single-brand restaurant chain and largest restaurant operator as well. A 6 inches sandwich sounds great to me, that’s why people love Subway.

Taco Bell is among a lot of people’s favorite fast food restaurants to go to. The place serves Texas Mexican or Tex-Mex food like tacos, burritos, nachos, and more.

I used to think the founder of Wendy’s was a female, but actually a male founder, Dave Thomas founded this restaurant in 1969. The name was given after the fourth child of Dave himself, Melinda Lou “Wendy” Thomas. The little girl as the logo of the restaurant? Yup, that is her. Wendy’s is the world’s third-largest hamburger fast food chain while Burger King and McDonald’s stand in the first and second rank. By the beginning of 2017, Wendy’s has more than 6,537 locations in many countries throughout the world. The restaurant is known for serving traditional ‘square’ hamburgers, sea salt fries, and Frosty.
