“(Reuters) – McDonald’s Corp on Monday reported another sluggish month of sales at established restaurants, results that suggest the famed hamburger chain is losing U.S. market share to rivals.”
Now, on the one hand, I want to jump up and down yelling “whoop whoop”, then again, the other side of me sees that they are attributing the downturn to other fast food outlets which are just as bad in my opinion.
Wouldn’t it be great if it was more that people were heading away from fast foods and going back to wholesome, nutritional foods prepared in their homes …… not that that is going to happen. Especially as there are so many pre-packaged foods available in supermarkets.
One sentence did stand out in this article “McDonald’s may have to boost promotions to improve sales” – Boost promotions!!!! Really???? Yes, I know, McDs have plenty of money to throw at marketing and, sadly it is aimed at the least fortunate (e.g. those who work there for such a paltry wage) and children who don’t know what healthy is.
God forbid that we feed our children healthy foods …. the pharmaceutical and medical industry would have a coronary – I mean, healthy children would grow into healthy adults, then where would they be?
