Hence, Fast food companies deliver same menu and standardized quality to minimize the period for the buyer to get product detail (Jekanowski, Binkley and Eales, 2001). Fast food is categorized to be a frequent choice, convenient for customers, delicious, and have a sensible price. Globally, it is the fastest emerging food category in the world (Xiao, Yang, and   Iqbal, 2018), generated almost USD 495.0 billion in 2014 (Food and Beverage Magazine, 2019) and more than USD 539.63 Billion in 2016 (Zion Market Research, 2019). The fast food industry is expected to earn a value of USD 690.80 Billion in 2022 (Zion Market Research, 2019) and USD 843.4 Billion by 2026 (Straits Research, 2019).
