Worldwide protests against major franchise fast food chains took place in over 30 countries on May 15. The protests first began in New York at the end of 2012 and are being heavily promoted by the Service Employees International Union (S.E.I.U.).
With McDonald's ranked number one in burger chains and Burger King pegged just one place behind at number two, the difference in revenues at their restaurants is huge: the average MickeyD takes in more than twice as much as BK.
Right in time for its franchisee conference, Burger King announced this week the launching of "Satisfries", french fries with 30 percent less fat and 20 percent fewer calories than their regular fries.
