About This Quiz

Fast food is food that is mass produced and usually takes a shorter time, on average, to be prepared and cooked. Hence the name. Because it is prepared so quickly and because it is so cheap, it is usually not as healthy as food that takes longer to be served and food that is more expensive. Because of its convenience, many people have become fans of this kind of food. Are you one of them?

Now we're not judging you based on how much you eat fast food. In fact, you may do extremely well on this quiz if you do eat lots of it (although your health may be at risk). All we want to test really is how many logos you can identify. But there's a twist because we aren't going to make this easy for you. We're going to remove the names of the restaurants on the logos so you can try to guess which is which. 

If you think you're enough of a fast food lover or if you're just very observant and can recognize all kinds of logos, no matter if it's food or some other kind of business, go ahead and get started on this quiz.
