You want a McWrap? Go the fuck inside!

McDonald's is getting weird.

    You think designing the Hamburgler was cheap? It took months of R&D work and Focus Groups.

    Those think tanks and marketing firms aren't paid in fries son.

    I've read articles that millennials (ugh I hate that term) are avoiding it and other fast food chains way more than previous generations.

    That + the ever increasing price of beef probably isn't helping.

    I like this thread because the "real" food thread doesn't really work for me.

    So I brought it back.

    I was gonna wait longer to see if someone else would make a new one, but then I found that article.

    They say that "hard-to-make" items like McWraps are slowing down their speed and that McCafe espresso drinks use too much electricity.
    it takes electricity to pour a little coffee into a cup of chocolate syrup?

    Yesterday I was at a Chipotle and asked for a chicken bowl

    They were out of chicken, and were cooking more

    So I waited as they cooked and chopped it

    It took ages

    I didn't mind waiting, but they had to reroute the line around me and oh boy did I feel like a jerk

    I always thought they should just make people with multiple separate orders take theirs inside as those are usually the ones that take forever.

    People are avoiding McDonald's because it has shit food and there are better places to get it from.

    And if they are getting rid of the drive through they might as well give up. Five guys is laughing right now.

    Yeah like Burger King has always had better junky fast food burgers anyway.

    McNuggets are still better than BK nugs though.

    Yeah there are now food trucks and online fast food delivery and ordering through your phone, etc

    Mcdonalds reigned for a long time due to its convenience, but they're quickly losing ground in that arena. When you can get better quality food just as quickly, why bother with mcdonalds?

    I don't understand the love Five Guys gets. I suppose it's okay if you're really hungry and don't need to touch anything for an hour.

    Well no one's claiming they're in danger of going out of business, just that their reach may have exceeded their grasp.

    Fast food in general has been growing unabated for decades, now, and we may finally be reaching the point where that becomes untenable

    Order fries well done at In N Out and you will have good fries that aren't drowning in or manufacturing their own grease.

    If I'm eating Five Guys, I know what I'm getting into.

    A tasty greasy burger and tasty greasy fries. Which you order a small portion of, cajiun spiced.

    No In n' Out in anywhere near my area for me to compare to though.

    I'd guess part of the reason McDonald's is losing business is because they're on every god damned corner.
    There are something like 6 McD's within a 10 minute drive of my house. Who needs that many McDonald's in that small of an area? It's an insane concentration for any business.

    I think they stuck to the "we switch our menu from 4am to 10:30" business model for waaay too long.
