    McDonald’s has changed its Twitter display name to “Amplifying Black Voices,” adding a profile banner that lists Trayvon Martin, Michael Brown, Alton Sterling, Botham Jean, Atatiana Jefferson, Ahmaud Arbery, and George Floyd as victims of “racism” and “systemic oppression.”The brand’s Twitter banner reads: Trayvon Martin. Michael Brown. Alton Sterling. Botham Jean. Atatiana Jefferson. Ahmaud Arbery. George Floyd.He was one of us. She was one of us. They were all one of us. We seem them in our customers. We see them in our crew members. We see them in our franchisees. And this is why the entire McDonald’s family grieves. It’s why...

    Hungry McDonald’s customers have been queuing for up to two hours today after it reopened 168 drive-thrus — with police being called out to manage traffic at some of its restaurants. The fast-food giant is set to reopen nearly 1,000 restaurants for drive-thru and McDelivery customers over the next three days. In a bid to try and stop the lengthy queues when drive thrus return, McDonald’s is announcing its chosen restaurants on the day they open — but an hour’s notice still gave customers plenty of time to queue today. There were reports of customers waiting up to an hour...

    Fast food giant McDonald’s will open 30 drive-thrus next week — with plans for all 900 stores to be back in business by early June. The burger chain is opening 15 stores tomorrow for delivery only with next week’s larger opening an opportunity for them to test safety measures before a widespread reopening in the summer. High Street rivals Subway are opening 600 eateries today for third-party delivery and takeaway; and Burger King announced on Monday a further 35 branches are set to offer drive-through collection or delivery. When the McDonald’s stores reopen, there will be a Ł25-per-car limit, and...

    Just days after the CEO of Tyson Foods warned that the “food supply chain is breaking”, the disruptions due to the coronavirus are starting to surface not only in households and grocery stores, but also across corporate America, and even McDonald’s has now said it is changing how it is doling out beef and pork to its restaurants as a result. The company has placed items like burgers, bacon and sausage on “controlled allocation,” according to Business Insider. Additionally, the company’s distribution centers have been placed on “managed supply”. This means that the company is now going to be rationing...

    Let’s just say that African customers craving a Big Mac from McDonald’s for lunch in Guangzhou were not lovin’ it when they discovered that they had been banned from entering the restaurant. A branch of the fast-food chain posted a notice stating, “We’ve been informed that from now on black people are not allowed to enter the restaurant.” Guangzhou is home to one of China’s largest African communities. It is a hub for African traders to buy and sell goods. Tensions are high between Chinese locals and Africans in the city. Blame the coronavirus for this incident. Online rumors...

    Two McDonald's employees in Florida have filed a $500m class action lawsuit, accusing the fast food giant of fostering "systemic sexual harassment". Jamelia Fairley and Ashley Reddick are named on behalf of some 5,000 women from over 100 US McDonald's outlets. It is backed by Time's Up, a high-profile legal charity set up as part of the #MeToo movement. McDonald's said it is "committed" to addressing all harassment claims. "McDonald's has always been committed to ensuring that our employees are able to work in an environment that is free from all forms of discrimination and harassment," the company said in...

    The Chinese industrial city of Guangzhou has become unsafe for black people. Visitors and workers from Africa were recently kicked out of their hotels and apartments because of the rumors that the coronavirus was sweeping through the black community. There have also been several racial incidents in the city as African nations and blacks in America have sounded an alarm about the racism. It's not a very well kept secret that Chinese society is racist. They are equal opportunity haters, seeing all races -- white, black, brown, red -- as inferior. They're usually much too polite and courteous to make...

According to the agency, the move is meant to convey the idea that we are "separated for a moment so that we can always be together."

    Whether you’re just a little hungry or starving, McDonald’s will soon offer a Big Mac to match. The fast-food chain will release two new versions of the iconic burger Wednesday: the Little Mac and the Double Big Mac. The Little Mac has just one beef patty, while the Double Big Mac has four. They’ll both still be topped with cheese, lettuce, pickles, onions and Special Sauce. The Double Big Mac comes in at 720 calories; the Little Mac is 320 calories — the same as a medium fry. Though the burgers’ prices will vary regionally, McDonald’s is recommending a price...
  • ‘McMillions’: How ex-cop orchestrated $24 million McDonald’s Monopoly scam

    02/03/2020 8:32:15 AM PST · by lowbridge · 21 replies ^ | February 1, 2020 | Michael Kaplan
    In 1987, McDonald’s launched an ingenious sweepstakes based on the game of Monopoly. Customers would purchase sandwiches, fries, drinks, etc., that included peel-off game pieces on the packaging — potentially rewarding them with anything from a Filet-O-Fish to a new car to $1 million. People went wild for it and business spiked by 40 percent for the fast-food giant, which kept it up for years. But it wasn’t all happy meals. “It seemed like an opportunity for ordinary people to get ahead, but there were consequences,” said Brian Lazarte, co-director of the HBO docu-series “McMillion$,” premiering Monday, about the contest. In fact,...

    The U.S. fast food giant opened its first chain in Moscow on this day 30 years ago, in the final months of the Soviet Union. McDonald’s opened the doors of its first restaurant in Russia 30 years ago, on Jan. 31, 1990. With 900 seats, it was the largest McDonald’s in the world at the time. Muscovites started queuing at 4:30 a.m. for their chance to get a taste of the famous American fast food. McDonald’s sold 34,000 burgers on its first day — smashing the burger chain’s previous first-day record of 9,100. Around 27,000 Russians applied to work at...

    A man visited the drive-thru at a McDonald’s in Pittsburgh, Pa., when he says he saw an employee standing with his hand stuck down his pants. While he didn’t appear to be wearing a uniform, he was standing in the kitchen at the time. “I was with my girlfriend and we were getting food for my daughter,” John Holieb explained to Fox News. “My girlfriend made a comment about how she can’t believe no one is wearing uniforms. Then she notices the guy with both hands down his pants. I looked and said, 'WTF. This is crazy.' There was a few of them just...

    JUNCTION CITY, Kan. (KSNT) – In a show of support Tuesday morning, law enforcement visited the Junction City McDonald’s in the wake of a coffee cup insult hoax.

The meet comes after Herington’s police chief accused a McDonald’s employee of writing obscenities on one of his officer’s coffee cups. In a press conference Monday night, the chief said the officer made up the story and is no longer on the force.

The officer confessed to making up the story after the chief investigated.
