The “Open Late” Phenomenon

Why don’t fast food restaurants (McDonald’s, Wendy’s, Taco Bell, etcetera) keep their doors open twenty four hours? I mean, they are slowly creeping towards that anyway, right? So why wait? Just do it, already!

All of the above listed fast food feeding stalls stay open well past midnight (McDonald’s’ drive through stays open twenty four hours around here. I assume it is standard throughout the McDonald’s empire). So why don’t they just go ahead and stay open all the time?

That’s what you want, isn’t it? Food at any hour? Right now, if not earlier? In a society which thrives on “faster, faster” mentality, I don’t see why these corporations don’t cater to the late night crowd.

Restaurants like IHOP, Waffle House, and Huddle House all stay open twenty four hours and they have little or no trouble meeting or exceeding their sales goals.

Just a thought.
