Fast Food from a by-gone era
Fast food restaurants trace their roots to roadhouses, roadside inns, and taverns, where food was served quickly. Over time, as automobiles became more commonplace, consumers began preferring to drive to fast-food restaurants. Some fast-food restaurants began advertising their proximity to highways and main roads, and they began to become associated with speed and mobility. In the United States, the first "modern" fast food restaurant opened in 1940 in Los Angeles, California, by Frank C. Robinson. It was called Robinson's Drive-in. By 1945, there were 600 drive-in restaurants in California.
