Drive Through Jack in the Box
Robert O. Peterson, the founder of Jack in the Box, brought to us a lot more than just hamburgers. Apparently, Peterson is a true entrepreneur in the fast-food industry. Drive-through already existed when Jack in the Box was established, however, Peterson took it a few steps forward.
He introduced an intercom system to the drive-through service and realized what a significant difference it made, both for the customers and for Jack in the Box. What a pioneer.
From Sewing Machine to Pizza Making
This pizza joint that can be found in almost every shopping mall was founded by the Italian mama Carmela Sbarro. She immigrated to Brooklyn from Naples together with her husband and three sons. Carmelas' dream was to open an Italian deli in the heart of NY. She never thought her dreams would turn into a pizza chain.
In her early years in America, Sbarro sewed dolls' clothes and saved penny to penny so she could make her dream come true. Gradually, the deli became a pizza shop, which later expanded to the Sbarro we know today. Carmela worked in the first Sbarro until her last days.
Krispy's French Connection
Krispy Kreme may be an American brand, however, the recipe is far from being native. The founder of the chain reportedly bought the donut recipe from a French chef and locked it in the company's vault until this very day.
There are many speculations as to what the donuts consist of. Some say they consist of cream, egg whites, and mashed potatoes, and some say it's simply milk and flour. What is really in the donuts? Perhaps we will never know.
This next fact might seem super weird and untrue, however, we are afraid to say that this is all authentic and legit. This is all true, and please, do not try this at home. KFC crocs are an actual thing, and there are even two versions to choose from.
The first is a simple classic croc clog with a KFC touch. The second kind has the bottom part designed with the famous chicken bucket, and the top part has chicken pieces printed all over. If that's not enough, it even has removable fried drumsticks. Oh yeah, Kim Kardashian has a pair. Why? Because of course she does.
Is It Pizza? Is It Chicken? It's Both!
In 2019 the rules of fast food changed. KFC and Pizza Hut joined forces and created the most extravaganza pizza the world has ever known. The popcorn chicken pizza was everything you could dream about and combined two favorite chains into one.
Imagine a classic pizza topped with mountains of mozzarella, dotted with crispy chicken popcorn, and sprinkles of sweet corn. This is as good as it gets.
