There are huge price increases coming from the fast food chain in January, as the company is raising what it charges the franchises.

That’s a truly well timed hit to the expense side of the ledger for franchise holders. And (what I expect are) the worst of the food cost increases are yet to come. At least the ruination of WacArnolds (hat tip to Chappelle) won’t affect me since I don’t eat there anymore. In the end it will be a just another victim of the “new, screwed, blued and tattooed economy”. I expect to see many such cases.

Maybe their marketing experts can bring back the McDLT to rescue the company. Serve it with some special edition New Coke.

I guess those EBT balances will zero out faster now.

Maybe business increased with the new displays because the speakers were better? IDK, not a MacDonald shopper.

So much for that $15/hr minimum wage.

I recently moved more rural and the only fast food place nearby is McDonald’s.
Their prices are already noticeably higher than I was used to elsewhere.
For example, the cheapest sandwich on the menu is $2.39 and most sandwiches are $6 or more. Even a basic coffee is $2.19, not $1 like most places.
When I go there, I use deals in the app for better prices. The app is… Buggy…
