How to find fast food films online and on the go
When you search for fast food on the web, the search term “fast food” is all the rage.
But you won’t find a comprehensive guide to the food available online.
In fact, there is only one official website dedicated to the subject, Fast Food Canada, which is run by the Food Safety and Quality Canada (FSQC).
The site has more than 3,000 entries, and is a handy resource for fast-food consumers looking to find a wide variety of fast food offerings online.
But the search terms used to find these offerings are quite limited.
There are just three words, “fast,” “fastfood,” and “fastest.”
Most of the searches on the site are to find “fast” restaurants, “restaurant,” “resturant food,” and, for the most part, “food.”
The rest of the entries, though, are devoted to “fast.”
To find fast foods, you’ll have to enter a city and zip code, a restaurant’s address, and an approximate mile-per-hour (mph) for their nearest drive-through.
For instance, if you enter a zip code in Ontario, the closest drive-thru is in Toronto, with a drive-in available in the nearby town of Vaughan.
In most cases, the fastest fast-service restaurants in the country are located in cities where fast food options are plentiful.
“If you look at the fastest places, they’re usually in small cities that have a lot of residents, and you’ll find a lot more options than you would in bigger cities,” said Mike Hagerty, the chief operating officer of fast-casual chain Burger King Canada, the country’s largest burger chain.
“It’s a great way to find options.”
The fast food industry is the fastest-growing fast-chain in the U.S., with annual revenue of $6.2 billion in 2015, according to Fast Food Analytics.
In Canada, Burger King, McDonald’s, Pizza Hut, and Subway have collectively raised more than $1.5 billion from franchisees and private equity firms.
But fast food has also been an important driver of job growth, with employment in fast-chains rising more than 100 per cent from 2007 to 2014, according the Canadian Food Institute.
“The trend is very similar in the United States,” said Scott MacLean, a research associate at the Fraser Institute, a conservative think tank.
“For every job gain, you see a corresponding loss in total employment.”
The food industry in Canada has also witnessed a rapid shift away from burgers to fries and other items that are prepared with a less-than-subtle amount of heat.
In the past decade, fast-and-slow restaurants have expanded to include restaurants that offer a full menu and a range of toppings, such as hot dogs and chips.
Fast-casinos have also expanded their menu and introduced a variety of specialty items, such for instance, pizza dough and “cucumber jam” sandwiches.
According to a 2015 report by the Canadian Federation of Independent Business, restaurants with no fast- or slow-food options saw a 5.5 per cent decline in business in 2015.
And fast- and slow-chain restaurant owners are often the most profitable, at $6 billion in revenues, according Statistics Canada.
The industry has also seen a significant rise in the number of restaurants that cater to the young, the under 30, and the homeless.
“There are a lot less people and a lot fewer options out there than there used to be,” said Jennifer Zee, a senior food and beverage researcher with the Angus Reid Institute.
In Ontario, fast food restaurants have seen an explosion in popularity, with about 4,000 in the province, and about a dozen other locations in the Toronto area.
In a province where most of the fast food market is concentrated in the urban core, Zee said, fast casual restaurants offer the option of a casual meal with the convenience of an urban dining room.
“You’re going to find more options, because people are not going to be in a rush to get there,” she said.
“They’re going on vacation.”
According to FastFastCanada.ca, there are about 1,000 fast food joints in Ontario and nearly 100 in British Columbia, which together account for nearly one-third of the country.
Fast food chains have been expanding in the GTA for several years.
In Toronto, the largest city, there were more than 800 fast-dining restaurants in 2016.
At the same time, there have been numerous closures in the Greater Toronto Area, including the closing of three locations in Toronto.
In Montreal, there was only one fast-fast restaurant in the city.
At least one in Toronto’s Chinatown is still open, and more than a dozen locations are being re-opened.
In B.C., fast food outlets have been a fixture in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside. In Surrey
