I’m Lovin’ It! I’ve spent the last year calling BS on the argument that McDonalds is dying off. Every few years this story comes along when sales or the stock price dips. Every time it’s been market hysteria, click baiting and wishful thinking. Today we see with a few tweaks sales are up and share price is soaring to all time highs.
Keep in mind McDonald’s has the resources and experience to create the best systems and recruit the top minds in the food service business. They are not going away anytime ever.
While I am at it, those who attack the nutritional content of McDonald’s food should compare their published nutritional data with an analysis of the hipster fast feeders such as Shake Shack, In N Out, Chipotle etc. I believe a Big Mac has a lot less fat and calories than the most popular items on many menus that get a pass on health criticism. On the run, I’m good with an Egg McMuffin (no cheese) or a Quarter Pounder. I don’t feel like taking a nap afterward like I would with Five Guys.
Check out the specifics on McDonald’s latest results here. And even the enemies of fast food admit it here.
Eat a balanced diet and McDonald’s won’t hurt you now and then. Poutine will kill ya a lot faster!
~~ Restaurants and Bakeries should jump on new Savory Donut recipes.
~~ It’s cold and snowy in Chicago today and comfort food in donut form sounds good to me. Hmmm, the Grilled Cheese Donut, Savory Cream Cheese Donuts, or Donut Monte Cristo Sliders… Decisions, Decisions.
~~ There’s some great ideas to jump start the Savory Donut food trend right here.
