Quick Restaurants is a Belgian chain of hamburger fast food restaurants with its head quarter in Antwerp.
It was founded in 1971 in Belgium. It is one of Europe's largest fast food restaurant chains. In recent years, its worldwide expansion has accelerated.
Quick is similar in theme to McDonald's and/or Burger King.
The chain was first established in 1971 in Schoten, Belgium. By December 31, 2004, it operated over 400 restaurants in Belgium, France, Luxembourg, Russia and Réunion. 72% of these restaurants were operated as franchises.
The first French Quick opened in Aix-en-Provence on July 19, 1980. Beginning on March 3, 2007, Quick also had restaurants in Algiers, the capital of Algeria. The first two Russian Quick restaurants opened in Moscow and Tula on March 21, 2008.
Quick does not salt its French fries behind the counter, leaving it up to the diners to salt the fries themselves. The fry containers bear the phrase "Plus ou moins salés: à vous de décider" in meaning "More or less salted: you decide."
Adapted to the use of Belgians and the French you can have beer or wine with your meals as that is what adults usually drink with their meals.
During the year's end festivities they also serve "Foie Gras" (the liver of a specially fattened goose or duck prepared as food) as it is a traditional starter for Christmas and New Year's meals.
The "Quick" in Waterloo
with playground for kids and special menus for students !
Of course we have one in Waterloo too and when my son was little he loved to go there as all kids did. Ever since in about 30 years I have been in a "Quick" maybe 3 times with friends, but then we preferred other quick snacks. I haven't been there with my grandson, as my friends have done, because mine is only nearly 4 and theirs are meanwhile over 15 ! Maybe later I can take him there once as it is still a lot of fun for kids.
