Chef Driven. The food is always the same at every store in a chain. An applebee's in Atlanta has the same food as an applebees in Dallas.
I like a revolving menu that changes with the seasons.

Are chain restaurants in the city of Atlanta at a risk of dying in a few years with all these new chef driven restaurants that are coming?

No. Both types of restaurants serve their purpose, and both will survive.

Agree

I prefer to dine at a chef driven restaurant but chains serve a purpose too. I enjoy the food at Seasons 52 and Bonefish Grill.

I always laugh when I see American tourists in Europe eating at a McDonald's or a Kentucky Fried Chicken

What makes something a chain? Taqueria Del Sol has 11 locations across 5 states. Flying Biscuit has 10+ locations over 3 states.

Some people don't really care about food. They just want something cheap and salty.

Or fast. There are times when you don't want to spend an hour having lunch. Especially if we're in a different town, we'll usually just grab a fast-food lunch because there are other things to do/see, and we'll visit local places for dinner.

True, I was in Amsterdam and I think I might haven eaten McDonald's twice in 3 days. It was just convenience and familiarity. It also was better tasting than our domestic McDonalds.
