The million dollar question that would disturb waves in many brains and raise eyebrows of people : WHAT IS FAST FOOD?? So the million pound reply would be that its like goodwill guess it is intangible but easy to describe and difficult to define but as said by Vincent Lombardi, Winning isnt everything, but making the effort to win is. So we give it a try: Fast food is the fastest catching food concept among the fastest changing youth. According to some intellectuals, Fast food is the food that is served fast. OR Fast food is the food that you eat to improve your speed OR Fast food is the food to express the fast pace within you


Apart from all this, the dictionary meaning of Fast Food is Prepared food requiring minimum of further preparation before sale or serving. India has been described as a nation of festivals and religions. But if we take a closer look into this, we find that, the crux of these concepts is that India is a country of multivaried cultures. These cultures give rise to different ways of expressing themselves. This has further given birth to various food habits. The varied terrain has also consolidated the view. If one goes from region to region in search of various fooding habits, the figures would be mind-boggling. Yes, we are deviating from the point, but the truth is that this fast food has been in India since time immemorial. In the North with the Himalayas, we have the spicy fried Tikki and Samosas. Going westward to the Gujarati desert of folksongs and camels, we have the delicious low-caloried Dhoklas. Going to Deccan hard land, the wavy violent sea banging the shores brings to mind the mixed vegetable, Bhaji served with Pao, or bread; PaniPuri and the most popular BhelPuri. Going further South to the land of Temples, we have Dosas, Idlis, and Vadas. But as the country was invaded and re-invaded by the Europeans in the 18th and 19th century, it brought foreign culture and hence foreign food into the nation. Indians, who love food eating and cooking were a bit apprehensive in the beginning but soon accepted the Latin and Italian flavours. Today as foreigners have come in via our own TV sets and media, the desire to eat good, better and the best from around the world has gained momentum. To add to this, People have welcomed the change and thus have encouraged leading foreign food brands to come and capture the Indian market.


Today, fast food is not just another type of food, but McDonald burgers and Nirulas pizzas have become a household name. Today, one may say that the target customers are the youth and the collegiate but the markets for these products is widening. It seems that it would take a manifold growth in the coming years as many outlets aim at selling their products to people from 8-88 years. This industry has today become a big investment market as crores are invested but the returns are much more.



Mc DonaldsIn 1954, a fifty-two-year-old milk-shake machine salesman saw a hamburger stand in San Bernardino, California, and envisioned a massive new industry: fast food. In what should have been his golden years, Raymond Kroc, the founder and builder of McDonald's Corporation, proved himself an industrial pioneer no less capable than Henry Ford. He revolutionized the American restaurant industry by imposing discipline on the production of hamburgers, French fries, and milk shakes. By developing a sophisticated operating and delivery system, he insured that the French fries customers bought in Topeka would be the same as the ones purchased in New York City. Such consistency made McDonald's the brand name that defined American fast food. In amassing a $500-million fortune, the king of the hamburger transformed the nation's cultural landscape and forged an industry that is among America's greatest exports. The widely imitated success of McDonald's offers an excellent example for today's managers and executives searching for greater production efficiencies. By putting the humble hamburger on the assembly line, Kroc showed the world how to apply sophisticated process management to the most prosaic endeavors. To succeed the McDonald's way, companies must define the basic premise of the service they offer, break the labor into constituent parts, and then continually reassemble and fine-tune the many steps12

until the system works without a hitch. Today, companies engaged in delivering pizzas, processing insurance claims, or selling toys benefit from the kinds of systems that Ray Kroc pioneered. To the degree that such operations maintain quality control, and cherish customer satisfaction, profits may flow. Adapting To Foreign Climates One key to McDonald's continued growth is international expansion. With operations in more than 65 countries, McDonald's now opens about one-third of its new restaurants outside of the United States. In the early 1990s, Fred Turner predicted that international sales would eventually surpass U.S. sales. While foreign markets can sometimes offer new obstacles for the American company, like hostile government bureaucracies and unreliable local suppliers, McDonald's faces an even greater overall challenge. In each country, from Belgium to Brunei, the company is forced to walk the tightrope of selling its uniquely American product, while simultaneously catering to local tastes. Although McDonald's always insisted on planting its rigid operating system in foreign soil, when it came to other aspects of the restaurants' operation, the company was more flexible. For example, to make the chain's name more easily pronounceable for Japanese consumers, it was changed to Makudonaldo, and its mascot became Donald MacDonald. Hamburger Central also allowed local operators to devise unique promotional campaigns. "Our name may be American, but we're all Irish," ran one promotional campaign for outlets in Dublin. Today, even the menus at McDonald's restaurants in foreign locations clearly reflect differences that do not exist at the company's American outlets. While the stores offer fare like hamburgers, French fries and13

milk shakes, there have been some additions: for example, when McDonald's restaurants opened in Germany in the early 1970s, they started serving beer; in the Philippines they offer McSpaghetti noodles, while Norwegian franchises offer a salmon fillet sandwich, the MacLak.
