Each fast food restaurant is now aware of the problem that each nation is currently encountering. Indeed, there is a growing tendency to consume healthy products with low level of acid fats and cholesterol. Therefore, the leading fast food industries, such as McDonalds, Subway, and Jack in the Box adhere to the new international standards to gain a competitive advantage. Although fast food is not out of fashion, people are still striving to buy fast-prepared, but healthy breakfast because of the peculiarities of leading a business life. At this point, all the restaurant start paying attention to the quality of food, healthy dieting, and nutrition to face the problem of obesity and excess weight. In order to understand the difference and similarities between the identified ventures, the attention should be given to such aspects as quality of food, service delivery, and cost of price.

However, the difference lies in their pricing policies and service delivery.
While Europe and the United States account for most chocolate consumption, the confection is growing in popularity in Asia and market forecasts are optimistic about the prospects in China and India (Nieburg, 2013, para 9). According to the CNN Freedom Project, the chocolate industry rakes in $83 billion a year, surpassing the Gross Domestic Product of over a hundred nations (“Who consumes the most chocolate,” 2012, para 3).

Ban the Junk
Imagine a lunch room serving pizza for breakfast, processed nuggets for lunch, and vending machines serving calorie packed pop, crunchy cookies, and gooey brownies. Although this may sound delicious, these foods are extraordinarily unhealthy. Eating high-calorie, low-nutrient dense foods leads to obesity, disease, and addiction to sugar.

The point of the law was not only to put another $31 Billion in the state coffers, but also to discourage the purchase of “harmful” foods. This 625% sales tax increase on candy and soft drinks is not only an unnecessary intrusion into the eating habits of Illinoisans; but also creates mass confusion for retailers.
