Therefore unsurprisingly, the fast-food industry is a global billion-dollar industry. Perhaps also unsurprisingly, all of the world’s largest fast-food chains are American. But the American fast food companies are anything but exclusively active on the American market these days. They have expanded into almost every corner of the world at this point and made fast food a popular eating concept. Consequently, fast food restaurants today are the most popular and frequented restaurants in the world. The following ranks the 10 most popular and largest fast-food chains in the world.
