There's always confusion surrounding what will be open on every federal holiday. A big part of celebrating Independence Day is spending it with your family. Many plan to watch fireworks and enjoy barbecues, but for others, simple dining out is the way to go. We are happy to break it to you that all the popular food chains have plans to stay operational this Fourth of July.

This Day of Patriotism became a quintessential holiday for all Americans in 1776. Since then the tradition of watching fireworks and parades while enjoying a picnic with your loved one has been the routine of every American family on this day. Keeping the sentiments of an average consumer in mind, the businesses stay operational on this day of the year which also helps them bring in great revenue for the companies. 

This year Independence Day Falls on a Tuesday, allowing many to enjoy a long weekend. Many companies allowed employees to take both Monday and Tuesday off so that they can spend some precious time with their loved ones, feasting and doing what every family does on Independence Day.
