How Fast Food Restaurants Have Changed Over The Years (35 pics)

They”ve come a long way…
Back in 1955, McDonald”s offered 15-cent hamburgers. At the time, its menu only offered nine items.

McDonald”s packaging has gone through noticeable changes over the years. This is what it looked like in 1955, complete with its old mascot.

Ronald McDonald made his first appearance in 1963, and he has been around ever since.

Now McDonald”s offers over 170 menu items across the world.

McDonald”s is continuing to make changes in order to turn its business around. The company promoted Steve Easterbook to CEO in 2015, changed up the menu, and started serving breakfast all day.

Burger King was founded in 1954. The Whopper was introduced to the menu in 1957. The sandwich has been on the menu — with its many variations — ever since.
