Check out this very interesting link which shows the growth of major restaurant chains worldwide since the 1970's. It is very well done and takes just a minute or two to view.
I don't know about you but I absolutely hate it when visiting an important historical spot like Stanislaus Square in Nancy France or a historic boulevard in Paris and seeing a restaurant chain like McDonalds or Kentucky Fried Chicken there.
I consider that visual pollution of the worst kind. I would never patronize one of them, and would prefer that they not be there. However, they must have some popularity or they wouldn't remain in business.
