You’d be correct if you assumed McDonald’s occupied the top spot as the world’s most popular fast food chain. It is the largest fast food chain in the world.
This fast food enterprise, which began in California in 1940, has grown in popularity all over the world. When travelling, a McDonald’s cheeseburger and fries are easy to come by with over 36,000 locations in over 100 countries.
Furthermore, McDonald’s receives 60% of its revenue from outside the United States.

Without this coffee behemoth, no list would be complete. This coffeehouse chain, which originated in the United States, is the world’s largest of its kind.
Starbucks started small in Seattle in 1971 with three partners who intended to open a high-quality coffee shop. They now sell coffee from all over the world, from all corners of the globe.
They operate over 21,000 outlets in 65 countries and generate over $15 billion in revenue. Starbucks is still expanding and spreading its wings. How far are they willing to go? It’s impossible to say.
