Restaurants were born with that need to simply save a lot of time and to escape the tedious routine of preparing meals all day. Instead of the staple meals we commonly eat, we can now go for a certain food we desire presented in the menu. Also, we can now purchase continental food and have it delivered at our homes.

Numerous food varieties came out with the increase of people going into this line of business. Hamburgers, doughnuts, and even the brewed coffee drink cause the growth of restaurant chains especially in Singapore making it a multi-billion business worldwide.
