Maid-Rite is one of America's first quick service casual dining franchise restaurants. Before it became a restaurant chain, it was a single restaurant, opened in 1926 by Fred Angell. By the end of the 1920s, there were four franchises granted; these four restaurants are still in operation.

Maid-Rite Corporation's CEO and president is Bradley L. Burt. The corporate headquarters are located in Des Moines, Iowa. As of April 2006, Maid-Rite has over 70 locations, located in Iowa, Nebraska, Illinois, Minnesota, Missouri, and Ohio. The location in Marshalltown, Iowa was featured on the PBS special Sandwiches That You Will Like, and the Quincy, Illinois location was featured in the Food Network show Feasting on Asphalt. The restaurant chain is not the unnamed restaurant mentioned in Roseanne, which served as the inspiration for the loose meat sandwiches served at the Lanford Lunchbox.
