Restaurants are nothing new, but the idea of “fast food” is a newer concept.
In ancient Rome and Greece taverns usually served food and drink to their guests.Going out to a fast food eating joint with family once in a while won’t matter much.However, frequent visits to such restaurants with one’s family can become quite an expensive affair, besides being unhealthy.These places served food out of necessity not because the guests though it would be “fun”.For a long time, people liked to eat at home more than they liked to eat at a restaurant.Beside that, because of the standardized menu and consistent quality, only minimal time need to be spent obtaining product information (Jekanowsky, Binkley, & Eales, 2001) then consumer did not know what ingredients contain inside fast food.
