Fast Food Meets it’s Match

The so-called birthplace of America’s culinary claim to fame, has put a stop to new fast food establishments. “Health concerns  were a major part of the decision to curb fast-food restaurant growth in Baldwin Park, but city officials also took note of complaints from residents about the traffic snarls created by long lines of cars waiting to get into the drive-through restaurants.”  A Baldwin Park city ordinance has banned new development of drive-throughs in order to rebuild the California town’s reputation.
