You can travel around the world and find some of America's most famous restaurant chains, such as McDonald's and Kentucky Fried Chicken. But the market works both ways. Dan Gentile of Thrillist writes that 9 non-US restaurant chains have penetrated the American market and are poised for great growth.

Jollibee's already developed a cult following at its 30+ American locations, and our country's hunger for Asian fusion, combined with a love of wacky marketing, means that Jollibee's signature style of bizarro fast food has a good shot at catching on.
