    I've noticed most fast food restaurants (Burger king, Mcdonalds, KFC) contain white, red, orange and blue. The Burger King colours look almost identical to the McDonald's colour scheme. Is there a reason for this? Does certain colours influence you?

    Effervescent

    Yes,

    Red, Orange, yellow are the colours of ripe food we are attracted to them as they (eons ago) were an indication of food.

    Blue and white (along with the red) may be a sublime appeal to the colors of your flag - and therefore patriotism.

    Also do you notice that chicken flavoured crisps are in green packets and original is always in blue? Salt and vinegar is always in purple. Is there a reason for this??
