Fast Food and Grace Church

We certainly live in a fast food culture, don’t we? And what is one of the keys to the success of the fast food industry? It is their advertising slogans. Do they really work? Well, let’s find out. Below are several slogans from over the past years. I bet you can guess the restaurant chain for just about every one of them. Give it a try:

Eat fresh
Where’s the beef?
All American Food
Have it your way
Finger Lickin’ Good
Better Ingredients. Better Pizza
Make a run for the border
We do chicken right

On May 15, 1940 in San Bernardino, CA, Ray Kroc founded a restaurant that now has over 31,000 locations and nearly half a million employees worldwide. Their slogans?

McDonalds is your king of place (1967)
You deserve a break today (1971)
We do it all for you (1975)
You, you’re the one (1976)
Nobody can do it like McDonalds can (1979)
You deserve a break today (1980)
Nobody makes your day like McDonalds can (1981)
McDonalds and you (1983)
It’s a good time for the great taste of McDonalds (1984)
It’s Mac Tonight (1985)
Good time, great taste (1988)
There’s nothing quite like McDonalds (1980s)
Food, folks and fun (1990)

What you want is what you get (1992)
Do you believe in magic? (1993)
Have you had your break today? (1995)
Did somebody say McDonalds? (1997)

Now what does all this have to do with Grace Church? Find out tomorrow!
