Buffalo Wild Wings
Percent Growth: 924.08%
10-Year Value Of Your $10k: $102,400

Mickey D's has been filling its coffers pretty heavily over the past 10 years. It had seen something of a downturn recently, although, with changes like all-day breakfast, the fast food chain has been turning itself around.

10-Year Value Of Your $10k: $21,040
The most modest gain on this list is nothing to shake a drumstick at—investing in Popeyes [PLKI] in 2004 would've more than doubled your money. The South's renowned chicken joint is making efforts recently to improve its customer service.
