Would You Pay 8 Bucks For A Burger At McDonald’s?

Consumers are losing interest in fast food, instead preferring the slightly classier fare served at establishments like Five Guys or Smashburger.

Missing Ketchup Prompts Alleged BB Gun Shooting At McDonald’s Drive-Thru

Everyone knows that ranch is the preferred dipping sauce when it comes to McDonald’s french fries. Okay, fine it might not be for everyone. But no matter what condiment you choose, getting less than you think you deserve doesn’t mean it’s okay to shoot the drive-thru window with a BB gun. [More]

Burger King Australia Will Honor Winning McDonald’s Monopoly Pieces

While fast food fans in the U.S. prepare to begin the annual ritual of collecting McDonald’s Monopoly pieces in the hopes of getting free food and other prizes, the promotion is already running in Australia.

McDonald’s Tries Again To Trademark “McBrunch”

McDonald’s Tries Again To Trademark “McBrunch”

Given McDonald’s love of selling breakfast, and its even deeper affection for trademarking anything even vaguely food-related starting with “Mc,” it’s surprising to learn that the company is just now getting around to trying to stake its claim on the phrase, “McBrunch.” But the real question is: Does this mean a real brunch menu is on the way from McDonald’s?

What Should McDonald’s Do When Kids Aren’t Interested In Happy Meals?

What Should McDonald’s Do When Kids Aren’t Interested In Happy Meals?

McDonald’s has a problem: kids. For a few generations now, families have been a big part of the company’s business, and marketing to children an important part of their business strategy. Yet kids and families just aren’t streaming in the door like they used to, and it’s not because terrifying new mascot Happy has scared them off. No, it’s because eschewing fast food is now aspirational for middle-class consumers, and everyone else is broke. [More]

(dsiniuga)

While it would be great for companies if all consumers agreed to go steady with just one of its suitors, choosing say, one fast food restaurant above all the rest and devoting themselves entirely to that relationship, that’s just not how it works. We consumers like to play the field, especially millennials, and that’s bad news for companies like McDonald’s. [More]
