The fast food industry in Australia is worth $20.1 billion each year.

So it's no wonder all the major restaurants have discount deals on all the time. They figure the fastest way to get a slice of the lucrative pie is to appeal to our wallets.

This means no hungry Yahoo Finance reader should ever pay full price for a quick meal.

As usual we have brought together all the best deals from McDonald's, KFC and Hungry Jack's so that you can peruse them here in one place:
