McDonald’s franchisee says it
must highlight healthier food

Tampa Tribune, by Richard Mullins

Original Article

McDonald’s has a problem. For the first time in 10 years, the company generated less revenue in a month than it did a year before, and it’s not a blip. The world’s biggest burger chain has been posting lagging results for some time, particularly in the United States. Blake Casper says he has a very good idea why. “Companies like Chipotle are doing a great job talking to people about healthy food, and they’re changing the dynamic of how people eat,” said Casper, who owns Tampa Bay’s largest McDonald’s franchise group with his sister Allison Casper Adams. “We embrace that

Comments:
But what if McDonald´s customers don´t want healthier food? Fast food chains are faced with a conundrum. Do they want food with good taste or food that tastes good? (Sorry, Charlie.) Burger King, knuckling under to the spirit of Michelle Obama´s hypocritical attempts to make school children eat healthy food at lunch, recently dropped from the menu their "Satisfries," which customers tried and hated.

Hard to have sympathy for a politically correct failing restaurant.

McDonald´s the more you try to appease the food police the more your food taste like cardboard. Have you tasted one of your biscuits lately.

Quality of food is usually the sales killer.

We rarely eat fast food. Our own homemeade hamburgers are just too good. But when we do, it´s In-N-Out. Always.

The competition serving fast food is just better and more available now than in years past. The double hamburger with cheese is a thing of the past. There are many sandwich options including Subway and Arby´s, mucho Mexican places, Chick-Fil-A with great cole slaw and on and on. Great variety and we no longer stop at MD or Burger King or the like. Not for health reasons but because the options are just better tasting

I don´t have a marketing degree or such, but I do have some common sense. Here´s some free advice:

1) People go to McDonald´s for fast food. Not healthy food. Not necessarily good food. Fast food.

2) McDonald´s already offers several salads. If they were huge sellers, they´d be offering more. It doesn´t matter what´s on the menu if no one wants it.

3) Perhaps sales are down because of the active urban marketing campaign that means McDonald´s isn´t the best place to take kids - the main demographic. Last time I was in one, a group were screaming obscenities that would make a sailor blush. The staff did nothing when mothers with children complained. Those families left. Don´t count on them to ever come back.

4) It helps to have people with an IQ over room temperature working there. The last time I stopped in was to get an iced tea through the drive thru. It took three times to get the order right - an unsweetened iced tea, with lemon and Splenda. How can you mess that up multiple times?

5) Tied to number 4, try hiring people who speak English. I don´t appreciate having to repeat my order a dozen times to someone who has no idea what I´m trying to order. Or then having to decipher their gibberish when they try to tell me something.

I never understood the anti-McDonalds attitude.

It is well known in dieting circles that if you are stuck out on the road somewhere, a McDonald´s hamburger and a low-calorie drink is not a bad lunch at all. Posting calories is not being "PC", the company is trying to retain market share in a weirdly influenced environment.

Want to know where the big calories are? Those chain sports bars/fun restaurants. I was at "BJ´s" the other day (a disturbing name for sure but we had a 1/2 off coupon) and they had a burger plate that was pushing 1500 calories! But people always pick on the easiest targets don´t they.

I only do fast food occasionally. I think In and Out Burger is the best, but I visit McDonalds and other places just as much. The food is tasty and I enjoy it. Neither myself nor my kids are fat. Preparation is the key, and sometimes the burgers taste better than other times. But if you don´t like the taste of a properly prepared Quarter Pounder, that´s your problem, not mine.

It´s about portion sizes and eating balanced meals along with exercise. This was preached in the 1960s when my mom would diet; it worked then, it worked now.

All of the above comments are valid however I suspect that another major reason is the available cash for the middle and low income workers (no, not those getting rocking chair money) that need to pay for food, shelter, clothing, gas to get to work. The real inflation (not the lies used by the Fed) of food and fuel doesn´t help.

I went to both a Wendy´s and a McDonalds this weekend. I ate a chicken sandwich and salad at the Wendy´s and then went to Mikkie D´s because they have a 49 cent ice cream (soft serve) cone... just about the size I wanted and certainly the price.

The difference in restaurants? Wendye=´s listed their food offerings on a big menu board. McDonald´s did, too, but each item had a calorie value between the name of the item and the price.

In-N-Out burger:

Doubleburger (two meat patties, two cheese, lettuce, onion, tomato, sauce)

Chocolate shake

Fries

Not often, but that´s it.

I used to like McDonald´s Filet of Fish - they cooked it to order and the sauce was good. Haven´t had one for several decades.

There may be some logic in #6. But In-n-Out proves that a chain offering a very simple menu, well-served using quality ingredients, can generate more demand than the restaurants can handle.

The In-n-Out closest to me is so busy that it´s almost impossible to go there without spending a half hour in line just to order. (and the next-closest stores aren´t much different)

It´s not lack of variety, as much as it is the lack of tasty quality.

Re #6, apparently incredibly successful In-N-Out didn´t get the memo. Their Double-Double burger has been their signature item since they were founded in 1948.

http://www.in-n-out.com/menu.aspx

We have several in our general area and all have long lines at just about any hour of the day or night. They have been paying their employees $10/hour for some time and have superior crews of nice clean-cut young people who speak and understand English and are incredibly helpful and courteous. Watching them in action in their kitchen area is like watching a well-choreographed dance.

The signs of the times as read by the Roger Cohen of New York Times at least in his piece The Great Unraveling throw shadows upon a doubtful scene. (Snip) It was a time of catastrophe because it was equally a time of folly.

TAMPA — Investigators from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission say they have solved the mystery of what happened when an alligator bit a woman last month while she was in her canoe on the Hillsborough River. Andrea Reese and a friend, Morgan Fusselman, were vacationing from Youngstown, Ohio, when they decided to rent a canoe at John Sargeant Park on Aug. 7. The two women had paddled for about 45 minutes and were outside park boundaries when an alligator jumped partway into the canoe and bit Reese on the calf and thigh. The attack surprised wildlife officials because the

The sheer ruthlessness and ferocity of Islamic-style warfare was underscored by the decimation of ISIS’ main rival by persons unknown. (Snip) Once the “moderate” nucleus is gone — where we can define moderate as SOBs who are our SOBs — you are essentially forced to choose between alternatives defined by your enemies. People who imagine that playing the clandestine card is a cheap and uncomplicated substitute for traditional warfare should think again. The game Obama is trying to play is not a “safe” alternative.

There is an unfortunate tendency to regard organizations like ISIS, Hamas or Hezbollah as a rag-tag agglomeration of mindless fanatics.

Ronald Reagan’s America beat the Sovs by outflanking them. Even though the Cold War was militarily stalemated in the late 1980s the Soviet productive front was wide open and the West rampaged through it. It was not obvious at first to people who counted only divisions,

The story goes that there was once a young Prince who, being inexperienced, was taken to the cleaners during a negotiation with his wily Vizier.

The punditry struggled to find something enlightening to say about president Obama’s strategy to degrade … defeat … inconvenience … manage ISIS — whatever you want to call it — because there was almost nothing to hold on to. (Snip) As I also predicted, Russia is already busy muddying the waters. “Russia blasts Obama for planned ‘act of aggression’ against ISIS as Iran and Syria warn he could trigger ‘first sparks of fire’ in the Middle East.” Russia, Syria and Iran are forming a coalition against Obama’s coalition. The phrase “first sparks of fire” are doubtless intended by the Russians

But the biggest difference for people who lived in what used to be called the First World is that the future now meant desirable poverty. This feature is called sustainability.

Richard Epstein at the Hoover Institution has an interesting article on president Obama’s apparent reluctance to use certain kinds of force to defeat ISIS. (Snip) But too much of a focus on the president’s world view risks perpetuating the false problem between the doves and the hawks and emphasizing the bogus choice between those who are temperamentally inclined to peace and those who thirst for war. These characterizations are beside the point. In reality all good security decisions — even those that use war or violence as much as those which do not to attain their aims are ultimately violence

Former President George W. Bush put together a 48 member coalition for the Iraq War in 2003. 40 of those members supported military operations and 37 provided some number troops. In April 2003, the list was updated to include 49 countries, though it was reduced to 48 after Costa Rica objected to its inclusion. Of the 48 states on the list, three contributed troops to the invasion force (the United Kingdom, Australia and Poland). An additional 37 countries provided some number of troops to support military operations after the invasion was complete. Despite these numbers the liberal media continues to push the lie

There’s a lot of competition for Barack Obama’s biggest lie. The man who could assure the American public with a straight face over thirty times that they could keep their doctor under his health plan, when he knew that to be completely false, is one hellluva fibber. But execrable as that serial prevarication may have been, it doesn’t hold a proverbial candle to his most recent whopper — that the Islamic State is not Islamic — not to mention its corollary, or perhaps subsidiary lie, that real religions do not indulge in murder.

Is a mutiny happening around President Obama? It appears possible that the president may not have made two of his most recent decisions with complete free will. The announcement that he would delay his immigration initiative until after the election and his formal announcement that the United States would take military action against the Islamic State could have been coerced. Maybe Democratic leaders in Congress and a few members of the Obama team have had it. Could it be that, after President Obama briefed Democrats in Congress on the immigration plan, they balked? Maybe the president was told that, if he
