Quick Restaurant Wi-Fi Hotspots in Paris

Restaurant Overview

Quick Restaurant logo.

Quick is a Belgian chain of hamburger fast food restaurants, similar in theme to McDonald's. It is Europe's third largest hamburger chain, and the only European fast food brand to operate on such an international scale. In recent years, its worldwide expansion has been accelerating.

In 2007 it was "nationalised" by the French government through its investment holding company CDC Capital Investissement.

History

The chain was first established in 1971 in Schoten, Belgium, and as of July 2011 was operating 483 restaurants in Belgium, France, Algeria, Andorra, Armenia, Egypt, Luxembourg, Morocco, Russia, Spain, and the United Arab Emirates. 80% of the restaurants are operated as franchises.

The first French Quick opened in Aix-en-Provence on 19 July 1980. Beginning on 3 March 2007, Quick also had restaurants in Algiers, the capital of Algeria. The first two Russian Quick restaurants opened in Moscow and Tula on 21 March 2008. Quick arrived on the Pacific island of New Caledonia in November 2008, and Fort-de-France on Martinique (French Antilles) in June 2010. [read more...]

Menu

In total, there are 40 products on Quick's menu. As of July 2011, the sandwich lineup included:

Tray with two Quick burgers and sides of fries.
  • the Cheeseburger
  • the Suprême Cheese
  • the Quick'n Toast
  • the Giant
  • the Long Chicken
  • the Long Chicken Barbecue Bacon
  • the Long Bacon
  • the Long Fish

Beverages offered:
Coca Cola (3 sizes), beer (by the can), Minute Maid orange or apple juice, Nestea iced tea, and San Pellegrino sparkling mineral water.

The Giant (which, despite its name, is similar in size to the other burgers) is the most popular choice, constituting about 50% of Quick's burger orders.

Quick does not salt its Belgian fries behind the counter, leaving it up to the diners to salt the fries themselves. The fry containers bear the phrases "Meer of minder gezouten, aan u de keuze" in Dutch, or "Plus ou moins salés: à vous de décider" in French, both meaning "More or less salted: you decide."

A vegetarian burger was available for a limited time in the 1990s but was discontinued due to low demand in the Belgian and French markets. Quick did offer a grilled cheese sandwich as a meatless option.

In February 2010, Quick announced that eight of its French franchises would offer halal menus to cater to the Muslim population1, a number that increased to 22 in August 2010, and only halal menus are being served since then.2 The move has caused controversy from politicians across various parties, including Roubaix's socialist mayor, Marine Le Pen of the National Front and the UMP, France's ruling political party.3

In 2011, Quick unveiled Le Double Mix, a two-in-one sandwich featuring a unique bun done two different ways on each half, with each side having its own dressings. Available in hamburger or chicken varieties, Le Double Mix was sold as a limited-run sandwich through April 18, 2011.4

Controversy

On January 22, 2011, 14-year-old Benjamin Orset died after eating two contaminated hamburgers at a Quick Restaurant in Avignon, France. An autopsy report concluded that Benjamin died from food poisoning. Traces of staphylococci were detected in the boy's body, as well as in five of the eight employees. Quick's managing director, Jacques-Édouard Charret, has refused to accept responsibility for the death of the boy.5
