Fast-Food Research Project


Directions:

  1. Go to your assigned fast-food restaurant and ask the serviceperson for a copy of the brochure listing the nutritional content of that establishment’s foods.

  2. In a typed, professional paper, answer the following questions:

    1. What fast food establishment did you visit, and why did you choose to complete your project on this establishment? I visited Subway for my fast food research project. I choose subway because I believe it is the healthiest out of all the fast food establishments.

    2. When did this restaurant first open? How many restaurants do they have operating statewide and nationwide? The first store was opened in Bridgeport, Connecticut in August, 1965. There are 24,929 in the United States and there 40,859 in 105 countries.

    3. How frequently do you eat at fast-food establishments? Not frequent at all maybe about once a month and sometimes once every two weeks depending on friends.

    4. List 3-5 reasons you eat (or you believe others eat) at fast-food establishments. I think people eat at fast food restaurants because it’s quick and easy. Also, most fast food restaurants are cheap and with this economy it’s difficult to eat pricy healthy food. Also most people aren’t educated to know how to prepare their own food or to know that eating fast food all the time is dangerous for them.

    5. Describe your experience obtaining the company’s nutritional brochure at the restaurant. The experience of obtaining the nutritional brochure at Subway was not difficult in fact they encouraged it because everywhere I looked in the restaurant the nutritional value was in plain sight. They hand it to you in a napkin and also while you are ordering anything of the menu the nutritional value is on the glass.

    6. Choose a fast-food meal that is typical for you. Refer to the restaurant’s brochure, and for each of the meal’s components list the following information (This should be in a table form- list each component of the meal individually and include an overall total column):

    1. Calculate the dollar cost of the energy content of the meal (divide total calories by the total cost). This tells you how much bang (energy) you are getting for your buck. 570/$11.04=51.63

    2. What percentage of your estimated daily calories is contributed to this meal? Carbs 2800/1000= 2.8% Protein 27/1965=1.3% Fat 8.5/1965=0%

    3. What do you believe is the most unhealthy item on the menu and why? I believe the meatball melt is the worst sandwich in subway because it doesn’t have any nutritional value. I looked up the nutritional value and it has 600 calories, 29 grams of fat; 12 of them saturated, and the sodium are at 1,560 milligrams.

    4. What do you believe is the most healthy item on the menu and why? I believe the healthiest item is the oven roasted chicken because anything that is roasted is better than anything else.

    5. Does this restaurant provide “healthy options”? Explain. Are they really healthy? Yes, Instead of buying the meatball melt buy the veggie delight. Instead of getting Doritos chips get the yogurt parfait. Instead of getting the roasted garlic bread get whole grain nine wheat bread. They are really healthy because you can see the different nutritional values.

    6. What did you learn from this assignment? I learned that even the restaurants that praise they are health have unhealthy items on their menu.
