Yes, We Want Fries With That

Whether it's sugar-filled soft drinks or fat-laden burgers, people can’t seem to get enough of what’s bad for them. It’s convenient, it’s cheap, it tastes great, and in times when people are working more and making less, it’s no surprise that sales of junk foods have continued to rise. Here in the US, fast-food sales are expected to rise 4.9% from 2012 to $188.1 billion in 2013.[1] Abroad, millions of newly minted middle-class consumers are discovering the joys of a Big Mac or pepperoni pizza. Emerging markets are the next frontier for these companies, and one American company, Yum Brands, already derives 40% of its profit from China alone.[2] Put it all together and you may have an opportunity for investors looking to get a slice of the pie.
