is for a place concentrating on very fast counter-only service and take-away food.
The food has a short preparation and serving time, usually because it is industrially prepared food and requires very few additional preparation steps. Food is typically served on disposable plates or in boxes, and often to be eaten with plastic cutlery. Food is typically paid for at the counter prior to consuming. There may be sit-down facilities ranging from one or two to many easy-to-clean chairs and tables.
The most obvious examples are the ubiquitous US chains such as McDonald's, but also includes places like Subway sandwich shops, and may include "fast casual" places like , Hot Dog booths, China take away, carts/food trucks (only ones that appear regularly at the same place) and more.
