Throughout Homefront are real-world brands, such as restaurant chains. Kaos Studios stated that the use of the brands are not for product placement, in which the company received no monetary compensation its use of brands, but for realism in the game's setting.

Restaurant chain. In Why We Fight, the player and the Resistance enters a White Castle restaurant while fleeing from the KPA. Noticeably, the prices on the priceboard do not reflect the hyperinflation that was alleged to happen about a decade prior in the game's backstory. In fact, the prices appear to be contemporary to the time Homefront was released (2011).
