    i think mostly they take over failed businesses as opposed to building from scratch

    True. Taco bell is famous for having restaurants that can be built and open in 24 hours.

    when New Brunswick, NJ was renovated the town felt the BK would look better on the right side of the street rather than the left, so they had a crane and a flatbed truck show up to lift it as a unit, drop it on the truck which then moved 100' to the other side of the street and then the crane lifted it again and landed it on its new foundation. really confused drivers for a few weeks, especially the Rutgers students driving high at night. that was many years ago. i think they don't use the trucks anymore; they probably use Fedex Ground, in one of their flat-rate boxes, now.
