Transcript of Factors of Production in a Fast Food Restaurant

1) Capital Investment
Capital investment is money being invested into the business. There are different areas where money can be applied. Here is a list of some of the types of capital investments (and details about them) that a typical fast food restaurant would probably need:

-Land (location). Preferably in a frequently visited, populated community such as a city. For example, St. Catherine's or Niagara Falls.

-A Building. It needs to draw the attention of the customer. Also, the building should be maintained and the interior should project a clean environment.

-Machinery/ Equipment. There needs to be updated and efficient machinery and equipment, in order to increase productivity, which means orders will be ready faster and the customers will be happy. Some examples of machinery/equipment that might be necessary in a fast food restaurant would be a cash register, a dish washer, a deep fryer, etc....
