    Hardees is a "big chain".....not as large as McDonald's, but still quite large. Over 3100 Hardees locations in 11 countries..... There's even restaurants in Pakistan, Kuwait, Jordan, Egypt, Bahrain, Lebanon, Iraq, Qatar.....

    You're right.....we could. I prefer frozen custard anyway.

    Never heard of them, sorry. And when I said big, I meant big. McDonalds have over 37k locations, KFC have 19k, Burger King have 18k, Subway have 44k etc. These are big and they're not in 11 countries, they operate in over 100 countries. Basically, everything Hardees do, these do it times 10. That's what I meant. A big chain.

    McDonalds does do everything big.....like having a large portion of "their" 1.7M employees (most of whom don't actually work for McDonalds but for one of the 35,000 franchise restaurants) on government assistance.... Their restaurant managers make less than a cashier at Lidl's....

    McDonalds, Burger King, KFC and Subway are all predominantly franchise based, unlike Hardees. As of 2016, Burger King owns less than 1% of "their" restaurants..... McDonalds and Subway were setup to be franchise based companies from the start. Subway started offering franchise agreements in 1966....even though the company started in 1965. Using the same business model as Hardees, none of them would be anywhere near as big as they are now. McDonalds only owns/operates 2770 of their restaurants....

    The food is only half the problem with McDonalds..... Their treatment of employees is even worse than their food. Burger King has had constant financial problems and could go belly up at any time, making those 18K locations a moot point. They haven't figured out that they're overpriced for the quality of food they sell or the service they offer. Not sure how KFC is so big world wide. We see restaurant closings here on a regular basis due to lack of business.

    I wish I could say KFC but we only have one restaurant where I live and it's impossible to park there plus it's generally gross inside.

    Right now it's McDonalds or a Crispy Chicken at Burger King.

    Sweden has had a real surge of gang related violence and overall spike in activity overall much as it's being handled it's kinda ramping up to some worrying levels, think it was a week or two ago that police stormed some areas and arrested some 30 people involved in bomb manufacturing used a few times so it's quite a escalation though the number of shooting incidents and other criminal activity has seen a increase overall.

    Strip clubs, bordellos, smuggling of cigarettes, alcohol and of course narcotics is nowhere near as underground as it used to be and even with reinforced windows and doors the local tobacco and jewelry stores get hit pretty often and there's increases in petty thefts ranging from pickpockets to what's it called bag grabbers and runners and I think there was a pretty big case in the southernmost parts of the country now as some gangs are targeting elderly and isolated farms and villas often with very brutal methods.

    Police is doing what they can but even smaller towns outside of the big problem areas like Malmo it's become much more noticeable although not yet to the extent where it's dangerous to walk around outside during evenings and such.
    (Think there's been some workings with the other northern countries and also the rest of EU to try and clamp down on this but so far it's still a noticeable development over a few years ago.)


    EDIT: Now then as to fast food I haven't really had much time lately to eat out and training is still taking a lot of energy plus well it costs a bit also even for the usual like McD and I'm trying to be somewhat economical hah.

    So I've been buying pasta and doing this whole American possibly ancient Roman tradition of covering it with molten cheese, working pretty well really. :D

    To me it seems like you're trying to convince me that Hardees is somehow bigger than the ones I listed, dunno why.

    It matters nothing whether they're franchises when it comes to food quality. I said that the big chains use cheap ingredients because it's obviously all about the money. This stands, whether it's a franchise or not.
