I blame copyright infringement. Anybody can put up a similar sign and siphon off a lot of revenue that was headed for McDonalds.

they have worked for decades to remove any possibility of ensuring you can trick your way into getting a freshly cooked burger. Now they are reaping the rewards of everybody getting a stale old no longer tasty slab of meat like circlets.

I used to be a hege fan and would eat there once a week or more.  I would ask for the quarter pounder no pickles.  They would cook a fresh one and it would be juicy, and delicious.  now they pre-cook a couple score patties and let them stew in some sort of flavor reduction bin before handing them out. Now I only stop there when travelling long distance and I need something quick.

and how the heck do you try to type 'huge' and get hege?

they lost my $7 a week (fark you, coffee prices!).  of course their stocks are going to tumble.

bring back the angus burgers

/they were good

If I want a burger and Fries, I'd rather pay more and hit up Five Guys. Much tastier and fresher.

Also, I'm not a fat bastard who eats fast food every day, liek I used to be.

Not enough McRib, obviously.

I go to Wendys or Jack in the Box if I need something quick ... I no longer visit McDonald's.
Or i go to Smashburger, Habit Burger, or Five Guys if i want to sit down and have a burger and fries.

it's crazy expensive now for just a quarter pounder meal or whatever

10 bucks is the new 5.


just not on your paycheck.


much cheaper in the USA, i'm told.

Clearly it's because the CEOs aren't being paid enough and the front-line workers are being paid too much.
 
2014-04-23 01:35:22 AM
obviosuly you need to pay the workers less and the CEO more.

THere is a point of dimishing returns when you try to make a product as cheaply as possible.  At some point people will go "WHat the hell am i eating" and go somewhere else.

In Wisconsin we have Culvers, which has much better burgers, instead of pink slime

McDonald's has a disappointing quarter-pounder....but Burger King has a whopper of a
sales jump?  (You make the call.)
