McDonald’s... I’m lovin’ it...
You sang it in your head while reading, didn’t you? I bet you did. How many times was McDonald’s there for your hungry stomach when you didn’t have time to cook? How many toys did you collect from Happy Meals? And how many wonderful memories do you share with your friends of having fun together and casually visiting McDonald’s? Good food, quick service and low prices are the three most distinctive features of this iconic fast food restaurants’ chain. Over the years McDonald’s staff did what they could to provide you with even better food, even quicker service and now they are joining forces with Picodi to provide you with even lower prices.
McDonald’s had its humble beginnings in 1940 as a barbecue restaurant operated by Richard and Maurice McDonald. And even in 1948 when they reorganized it as a hamburger stand no one could predict how popular it would get. Nowadays, this gigantic business operates over 34,000 restaurants in 119 countries worldwide employing 1.8 million people and serving around 68 million customers daily. There are over 1,200 McDonald’s restaurant in UK employing around 97,000 people and serving around 3 million people every day. But words and dry numbers, as impressive as they are, can’t really express this characteristic atmosphere, the bright colours of restaurants’ interiors, the smell of food and the memorable taste of milkshake that we secretly sipped from our friend’s cup while they were looking away. It can’t be described, it can’t be imitated – you need to go there and feel it.
What’s on the menu?
Well, that sounds like an unnecessary question. We need to admit it – we all know their menu by heart. But hey, McDonald’s likes to surprise us from time to time with something new, so let’s check it out, just to be sure that nothing escapes our attention. We don’t need to dwell on popular, common meals like burgers, fries or breakfast options. But it is good to know that that McDonald’s issues a Saver Menu where you can find a lot of meals that are cheaper while maintaining the same high quality of ingredients as the rest of the menu. Another tasty option to try is the new Signature Collection featuring burgers with 100% British and Irish beef, carefully selected ingredients and brioche-style buns. For kids, along with traditional, well-known Happy Meals, parents can order a Fruit Bag for only 49p. It is worth noting that all the positions in menu come with the full nutritional information and warnings about possible allergens.
Is McDonald’s food that good?
Maybe you’ve never eaten at McDonald’s. Or maybe you’ve heard that fast foods are not as healthy as food cooked at home.
