Outback Steakhouse is one of the best steak houses that was exported to America from Australia. Well, that is not so true. As it turns out, and despite the false advertisement, Outback Steakhouse is not Australian at all.
Even more, the founders of this chain have never set foot in the land down under. They don’t have any authentic Australian dishes on their menu, and they don’t even know what Australian food is all about. They just wanted to advertise it that way because it sounded unique.
KFC's Holiday Treet
To most, Kentucky Fried Chicken is a mid-week treat, a simple and delicious guilty pleasure that doesn't require any effort and is not even too costly. And to others, it is a Christmas Delight.
Since 1975, the Japanese Kentucky Fried Chicken offer a Christmas special barrel worth $40. This barrel is so popular that they are sometimes sold out before the holiday even begins!
Around the Clock
Up until 1988, Denny's was known as the 24/7 fast food chain that is always open. For more than 35 years, Denny's always had something to offer. In 1988, the chain decided to give the employees some time off and decided to close its doors for a few hours during the least busy ones. This led to a problem no one thought of.
Because the doors were never locked, the locks were not in use for all those years. New locks had to be installed across all the chain's branches. Closing the restaurants for a few hours cost the chain more than it anticipated.
The Chosen Ones
As if celebs don't already have it all. If you are a first-class celeb, like Jay Leno or Jennifer Hudson, you are indeed a chosen one. A chosen one to be on the grand Burger King Crown Card prestige list.
Those who are lucky enough to have a Crown Card will grant themselves a lifetime supply of burgers and fries at any Burger King restaurant of their choice. As if celebs don't already have it all.
King, Queen, Jack
Everything is different Down Under, even the King. In 1991 when Burger King was planning to open their first restaurant in Australia, they were in for an unpleasant surprise. Burger King as a trademark already existed in the southern continent, and they had to think of another name for the Australian chain.
Hungry Jack is what they came up with, and even today, if you happen to walk the land below, don't look for the King, look for the Jack.
