“Aaseng takes an intriguing look back to the beginnings of these restaurants. . . . Well written and illustrated . . . this title works both as biography and history.”
School Library Journal

Where did all those fast-food dining spots come from? From Fred Harvey (Harvey Houses); Walter Anderson and Billy Ingram (White Castle); J. F. McCullough and Harry Axene (Dairy Queen); the McDonald brothers and Ray Kroc (McDonald’s); Harland Sanders (Kentucky Fried Chicken); and Tom Monaghan (Domino’s pizza).
