not actually sure about this (space requirements for cooking and storage
may vary, etc.), but I am sure you won't be able to convert a fast food
restaurant to a shopping mall, department store or kiosk.

yes, but this is about the restaurant usage, the storefront building
remains a storefront building.

what is the advantage?

it generally does not work, because it mixes different concepts into one
tag, which you can only interpret by guessing and with additional knowledge
(which properties belong to the building and which to the restaurant use).
