Accra is a city with lots of chain restaurants. Drive through the urban sprawl and you'll see basically nothing but chain restaurant after chain restaurant, all of vastly different qualities.
7 fast food chains we wish would come to Ghana
Although there are plenty of food chains in Ghana, we think the country's food chain will be better of with these ones.
Some chains are mediocre, some are fine but nothing special and some are so good that we're insanely in love with.
Business Insider Sub Saharan Africa rounded up some of the most delicious, enviable, and unique fast food chains around the world that we wish would come to Ghana.
Flunch, which we assume is short for "French lunch," or maybe "fast lunch," revolutionizes the fast food experience. At Flunch, food is self-served, and customers can pick from a large spread of options, including the famous grilled meats menu.
Noodle Box: Australia
Noodle box is as simple as it sounds: oodles of Asian-style noodles in a "box" (cardboard cup). As one of the largest Asian fast-food franchises in Australia, you can get your noodles made with shrimp, Mongolian beef, honey chicken, and more. We really can't think of a Ghanaian equivalent to this chain.
Chicken Cottage: The UK
The Brits love their fast-food chicken. Chicken Cottage is popular for its fried, grilled and BBQ halal chicken, as well as its sandwiches and wraps. Of course, they also are known to slather on some peri-peri sauce (we really need to make that a thing in Ghana)
Mini Kalzone: Brazil
If there's something we're lacking in Ghana, it's an entire restaurant chain devoted to calzones. These are basically like cheesy hot pockets that come in a variety of flavors. The menu is simple, but you can also get smoothies and cookies if you're still peckish after a kalzone.
Toast Box: Singapore
Can you imagine an entire fast-food chain dedicated to toast? Toast Box is one of the most popular Singaporean food chains and serves unique toasty creations alongside artisan coffee.
Hell Pizza: New Zealand
As their tagline says, "The best-damned pizza, in this life or next!" This hell-themed pizzeria has interesting names for their pizzas. Greed is made with double the ingredients, while Wrath is spicy. We think this would do especially well in Ghana.
FEBO: The Netherlands
This Dutch fast-food joint is actually not staffed by humans. Instead, you put your money in a machine and get your food from a slot, much like the popular automats of the 50s. Pictured above, one customer orders her chicken on a stick. Most of the menu items are on the smaller side, including croquettes, fries, and burgers. Ghana can't just wait to have it.
