The first McDonald was opened in 1940 by Brother's Dick and Maurice McDonald which located in Route 66 in San Bernardio, California. At that time, they offered 25 different kinds of food by the carhops, in this way, it especially attracted young people who was able to drive a car. They can simply drive to the carhops, placed the order and severed food on trays.
After a few months of managing the restaurant, the brothers discovered that the most popular food overall was hamburger. They get a sense that people came to by these food usually were interested in eating quickly. So they closed the restaurant and created a system called "Seepdee system service." They also changed the menu to mainly focus on hamburger, french fries and milkshake. Also, the burgers were sold for 15 cents each which is half of price for the cost of a regular dinner burger.
With a huge success of the brother's first McDonald, they franchised it outside and had eight restaurant in total by early 1950s.
By 1958, the company had sold 100 millionth hamburger all over the country.

New restaurants
Burger King
After when James McLamore and David Edgerton visited McDonald, they saw the fast food as a potential growth. So they followed it and opened their first restaurant in 1954 in a suburb of Miami, Florida.
Dunkin' Donuts
The first Dunkin' Donuts was founded in 1950 by William Rosenberg in Quincy, Massachusetts. But even before that, in 1948, William Roseberg opened his first restaurant in 1948 named Kettle Donuts. After 2 years in 1950, he officially changed the name to Dukin' donuts. William Rosenberg was originally worked n a food factory and construction site, where doughnuts and coffee were the two most popular food. And this idea let him to found his own restaurant and get a huge success through it. In 1959, the company began to grow and joined the International Franchise Association.
Taco Bell
Tacos Bell was founded by Glem Bell, As the growth of fast food restaurant, he originally opened a hot dog stand called Bell's Drive-In in San Bernardno in 1946. However, his business didn't go as well as he expected. Across the street, he had always saw a long time of customers at a Mexican restaurant He suddenly realized Mexican food also attracted a huge amount of costumers especially the shelled tacos at this time. So he started to eat in that restaurant regularly and attempte to get the recipe of making food. In late 952, he took what he had learned and opened a new stand and sold tacos under Taco-Tia. Later on in 1962, he officially opened his first restaurant Tacos Bell.
Other new&popular products
50s Food Postwar America
A TV dinner is a frozen meal packaged in a tray that looks similar to the airline food service. It usually contained a cut of meat with vegetable and dessert inside. In 1954, Swanson introduced the first TV dinner to the whole America: a thanksgiving dinner contained mashed potatoes, peas, turkey and cornbread as dessert. The named of TV dinner came from the shape of the tray that the food were served on which was resembled to the shape of TV. Also, as TV became a popular trend at that period, families usually watched TV while they were eating these food. So it had the name of "TV dinner" instead of "frozen food".Swanson initially thought they could sell this new product about 5000 at the first year, however, the numbers ended up at 10 millions at the end which was far out of his expectation.

The numbers of TV dinner were sold out show the desire of American for these kind of convenient food especially for the women who had to cook everyday at home. Compare with the regular dinner that took a lot of time for cooking, people can easily finish the everything within 20 minutes by using the TV dinner. This gave women more free time to pursue their jobs as well as other activities and at the same time providing food for their family.
Because the food was freezing all the time, it definitely didn't taste as good as the dinner that was regularly made. In addition, there were much more extra salt and fat in the TV dinner and less nutrients than the fresh food which could be harmful for people's body for eating it everyday.
