The Whopper was born in Florida. So was the Bloomin’ Onion.

A state that is known for its famous cartoon mouse, pristine beaches and wild animal stories also served as the birthplace of some of the more popular restaurant and fast-food chains in the U.S. and beyond.

That includes Burger King, Hooters, Red Lobster, Olive Garden, Outback Steakhouse and Firehouse Subs.
