DailyDirt: Faster Food, Faster!
from the urls-we-dig-up dept
There are a lot of food options out there, and fast food is certainly one of the more popular choices for people on the go. Not surprisingly, though, fast food establishments usually don’t have the best reputation for healthy dining, but some of them are trying to change their image. Here are just a few stories on fast food news.
- Burger King is testing out a home delivery service for its food in the DC area. Best sentence in the coverage: “There are some real food-quality issues here,” says Ron Paul, president of research firm Technomic. [url]
- McDonald’s tried a social marketing campaign on Twitter, asking for customers to tell some of their #McDStories. Oops. They didn’t expect the #McSnideRemarks — which is par for the course on the internet. [url]
- Yum! Brands restaurants (eg. Taco Bell, KFC, Pizza Hut…) in Kentucky lobbied to accept food stamps — but some people don’t think that’s a good idea. Others argue that it’s a step up from getting food from a gas station. [url]
