New menu fuels McDonald's profit
It said when people get sad the eat like hell to get happy (well thats my quote actually, (tongue in cheek)). Seemingly eating at Mcdonnald's helps America to get out of the resession. However it also make people very fat.
Well I am supporting america by eating fruit pies and drinking their coffee. every day I spend time talking to those that have excaped to live here in paridise. I can confirm Dumaguete City Negros branch is over flowing with fat ex-pats mainly from the US.
Selling more expensive burgers has helped McDonald's third-quarter profit climb 6%.
The fast-food restaurant chain's global net income for the June to September period rose to $1.3bn (£760.7bn), from $1.2bn a year earlier.
McDonald's said new more costly products, such as the Angus Third-Pounder burger, were popular with US diners.
Shares in the company were up 2% in early Thursday trading.
The firm's quarterly sales rose 2.5% at US stores, 5.8% in Europe and 2.2% in Asia, the Middle East and Africa.
The norm here is "A Burger and Rice please" such menu's of course are not the order of the day in the good old US of A.
