Tokyo Olympics could help U.S. fast food chains in Japan

Japan Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and Tokyo Governor Naoki Inose want more stores and restaurants to use foreign-language signs as the city begins the long process of prepping for the 2020 Summer Olympics.

Though it's a bit of a reach, the development could help U.S. companies such as McDonald's (MCD), Yum Brands (YUM), and Domino's Pizza (DPZ) - which have struggled at times in the nation - if the Olympics process changes consumer preferences in Japan over time.
