Which fast-food chains are open on Easter and Good Friday?

No matter what holiday you plan to celebrate, this weekend is all about the feast.

Ramadan began on April 1 and will last until May 1, Easter weekend begins on Good Friday, peaks on Easter Sunday, and is celebrated by some informally as Good Monday. Passover also starts on Friday and lasts for a week.

But even if you are not a person of faith, chances are you will be sharing a meal with your loved ones this weekend. But what about all the other food?

If you’re the person who’s in charge of making the big dinner, it’s understandable that you’ll need a quick lunch at some point before you come back to complete the casserole. But if you don’t feel like cooking and want to take the family out for dinner, you’ll have plenty of options.

But it’s a bit unclear which major fast food chains will remain open.

Easter is not one of the holidays like Christmas or Thanksgiving where you assume that everything either closes or closes early, but in some places Good Friday or Sunday is a day off. While some franchises allow individual locations to call their own, many have set corporate policies.

So if you can already tell you’re going to need a quick chicken sandwich at some point this weekend, here’s what you need to know.
