We are coming to a close to our blog. We thank everyone who has taken the time to read what we had to say. We definitely had fun writing about fast food and reading interesting circumstances of other fast food companies. something that we have learned was that managing a blog was not easy as we thought it would be. We had to do a lot of external research before we posted the blogs. but this was a good learning experience that we will take with us in our future endeavors. Thanks again

Customers were not happy with the taste of Dominoes pizzas. I will be discussing what Dominoes has done to change their reputation in a positive sense.

Burger King has attempted a number of successful and unsuccessful advertisements. Burger King was the first in the fast food industry to use competitive ads. The theme of this advertisement was that Burger Kings burgers were larger and better tasting than their main competitor, McDonalds. In response, McDonalds sued Burger King in 1980 and they had not compromised a settlement until 2001.

The first time I ate a burger at In-N-Out was during my San Diego vacation. I was told that In-N-Out burger is the most delicious hamburger in California. The burger looks like “open laugh” because of the hamburger shape. I was driven by curiosity and decided to go and try it. The popularity of the In-N-Out restaurant is beyond my imagination. There were the long queues whether it is driving through or inside of the restaurant.
