The burger replaces the bun with cheese in the middle?
God knows they need a makeover. It isn’t the golden arches that are bad. In fact, I think that was brilliance from the beginning. They stand for the fries, and while they aren’t the healthiest thing to eat, they are tasty and McDonalds made them healthier with better grease in which to fry potatoes.
I really don’t like it when the mop person swishes by my feet as I am taking my first bite of a sandwich. I also don’t like sitting down to a semi-wet table top where someone took a swipe with a wet rag and didn’t finish the drying.
There is all of that plastic signage describing 16 ways I can get the same burger and fries.
I really don’t like the generic flavored milk shake that could be chocolate, strawberry, or vanilla. Since they could never keep three machines running in succession, I think they just mixed the fake dairy product into one concoction and call it whatever the customer wants.
Yes, they need a makeover. How about pirogues? Every once and awhile a fast food guy tries them, a potato stuffed pastry sautéed in butter, that’s an American starter. Then, everyone from wherever in the world can add their own sauce and seasoning.
“McDonald's $5 billion makeover
The fast-food chain is trying to look less like a burger joint and more like a coffee house.

Get ready for a McDonald's (MCD) makeover. The golden arches are looking to class things up a bit this decade.
The fast-food franchise is planning to spend as much as $5 billion to remodel thousands of its restaurants during the next few years, Crain’s Chicago Business reports. These fixes will go beyond sprucing up the bathrooms or renaming menu items.
“In the next five years, McDonald's plans to spend billions of dollars to remodel thousands of U.S. restaurants with new features such as plasma TVs, lounge chairs and electric fireplaces,” according to Crain’s. The company will also add free Wi-fi and “stone facades” to stores, and make practical improvements like widening drive-ins to two lanes.”
