iA fast food restaurant is a specific type of restaurant characterized both by its fast food cuisine and by minimal table service. Food served in fast food restaurants is cooked in bulk in advance and kept hot to order; food is usually available ready to take away, though seating is provided. Fast food restaurants are usually part of a restaurant chain or franchise operation, which ships standardized foodstuffs to each restaurant from central locations. The first fast food restaurants originated in the United States during the 1950s.
