She Began Her Career in the Kitchen
Lynsi Snyder is an American businesswoman and billionaire, and she is also the proud owner of the In-N-Out fast food chain. She is Harry Snyder’s granddaughter, who is the founder of the successful hamburger house. She is a very talented hard worker, and you won’t believe how hard she had to work before becoming who he is today.
Following the tragic death of her uncle, who was at the time the owner of the chain, Lynsi decided to take control of the family business. She had to work her way up, and her first position was in the kitchen, peeling potatoes and slicing onions.
Julia Child of Chinese Cuisine
In 1993, Philip Chiang and Paul Fleming opened P.F. Chang’s, a Chinese-American fast food chain. Their menu and recipes were created by Cecilia Chiang, who is an award-winning chef. Cecilia's cooking was so authentic and unique, and she was considered the Julia Child of Chinese Cuisine.
Some of P.F. Chang’s dishes were so successful that they branched out of their 300 restaurants. Chang's spring rolls, for example, can be found in the frozen section at your local supermarket.
I Don't Want to Rock
Chipotle is one of the nation's favorite Mexican fast-food chains, and there are a few things you don't know about it. It was established in 1993 in Denver, Colorado, and brings us much more than burritos. The chain takes music very seriously and invests in it just as much as it invests in its food.
Chipotle has hired DJ Christopher Golub, who created a playlist for the chain. Each restaurant has its own, and it is updated every single month. So, Chipotle is doing wonders with satisfying our stomachs, and they are also doing wonders in satisfying our ears.

Next time you hear about a new Chick-fil-A restaurant opening, don't just ignore it — mark down the opening date and be sure to be one of the first 100 customers. Why, you ask? Well, for a very good and economical reason.
Chick-fil-A encourages its customers to visit its new restaurants, so they offer free chicken for the first 100 customers who make it to its brand-new doors. Remember, look out for new locations, and get ready to camp out.
Hut in Space
When Pizza Hut says it will deliver anywhere, it means what it said. Back in 2001, more than 20 years ago, a Pizza Hut pizza was delivered to Yuri Usachov, the Russian astronaut, while he was at the space station. This might have brought great publicity to the chain, however, it didn't come cheap.
It was reported that the Pizza Hut space campaign cost the chain almost $1 million. Now that is a lot of money, considering it wasn't a solo journey into space, and the pizza had to catch a ride with the Russian Rocket.
