Unbelievable McDonald's facts

Before, during, and after the global recession, McDonald's has been an unstoppable force.

The fast food giant can now be found in 119 countries, where it serves over 75 burgers every second.

And if you don't like burgers, the chain is great at localisation with countless unique items served at around the world, and now it's taking over coffee.

In Australia, the value meal “loose change” initiative helped the brand resuscitate earnings this calendar year, making the region a standout among the US company's global operations.

The local branch of the fast food chain has grown its market share over well-known rivals and recently hit a market share of 50 per cent in New South Wales.

But just how big and far-reaching is the global company? The following facts should blow your mind

    I have eaten MacDonalds' food once. With greasy chips and a hamburger that tasted like cardboard, I couldn't bring myself to finish it. The remains went into the bin - where they belong.

    Never been a big Mc fan but,I like their Coffee. The Burgers,eg. the meat tastes of cardboard, the chips loaded with fat. Just look at the majority of the customers, just look at the statistics .A lot of empty kilojoules. Poor Chinese, I am sure even their more modest food would be better for them, but who would dare to denie them that freedom,their is no social conscious, just the lure of big bucks.
