According to Chain Leader, executives are giving up the “3 martini” lunch and doing the dollar menu at McDonald’s. Well, people still have to eat. I’ve never been a McDonald’s fan — I just don’t like their recipes — but I see the point. Well, these are the execs who are going to stay in good with the new administration… they’re not flying on $15 million jets.
When I was a kid, I remember that McDonald’s had a promotion/contest during the Olympics. It was also during a recession and we used to collect all those tickets for free fries and sandwiches and that was dinner on my way home from Northwest Symphony rehearsals in Mt. Prospect.
