"McDonald's is aiming for 10 percent annual sales growth in China over the next five years amid stiff competition from Yum Brands Inc.'s KFC, aiming to add about 100 restaurants a year to its current stable of about 750 stores." [CNN]
UPDATE: There was a good editorial in the South China Post regarding things that should be kept in mind as the fast food industry expands in China:
"The mainland would be sensible to take note, given the popularity of fast food there. It can ill afford an explosion in modern western diseases among a huge population with problematic access to affordable health care. And studies have found that Asian immigrants to the United States are more susceptible to Type 2 diabetes, in that they develop it at lower weights than people of other races.
There is a good case for the mainland to start a revolution in healthy fast food - drive thru, cycle-thru or walk-thru."
