INTRODUCTION • The McDonald's Corporation is the world's largest chain of hamburger fast food restaurants, serving around 68 million customers daily in 119 countries • Headquartered in the United States, the company began in 1940 as a barbecue restaurant operated by Richard and Maurice McDonald; in 1948 they reorganized their business as a hamburger stand using production line principles • Businessman Ray Kroc joined the company as a franchise agent in 1955. He subsequently purchased the chain from the McDonald brothers and oversaw its worldwide growth For more information : Case Study Help

HISTORY • The business began in 1940, with a restaurant opened by brothers Richard and Maurice McDonald at 1398 North E Street at West 14th Street in San Bernardino, California • Their introduction of the "Speedee Service System" in 1948 furthered the principles of the modern fast-food restaurant that the White Castle hamburger chain had already put into practice more than two decades earlier • The original mascot of McDonald's was a man with a chef's hat on top of a hamburger shaped head whose name was "Speedee” For more information : Case Study Help
  5. 5. • McDonald's first filed for a U.S. trademark on the name "McDonald's" on May 4, 1961, with the description "Drive-In Restaurant Services", which continues to be renewed through the end of December 2009 • In the same year, on September 13, 1961, the company filed a logo trademark on an overlapping, double arched "M" symbol • The overlapping double arched "M" symbol logo was temporarily disfavoured by September 6, 1962, when a trademark was filed for a single arch, shaped over many of the early McDonald's restaurants in the early years • Although the "Golden Arches" appeared in various forms, the present form as a letter "M" did not appear until November 18, 1968, when the company applied for a U.S. trademark For more information : Case Study Help
  6. 6. CORPORATE OVERVIEW FACTS AND FIGURES : • McDonald's restaurants are found in 118 countries and territories around the world and serve 68 million customers each day . McDonald's operates over 34,000 restaurants worldwide, employing more than 1.7 million people . The company also operates other restaurant brands, such as Piles Café • Focusing on its core brand, McDonald's began divesting itself of other chains it had acquired during the 1990s. The company owned a majority stake in Chipotle Mexican Grill until October 2006, when McDonald's fully divested from Chipotle through a stock exchange. Until December 2003, it also owned Donatos Pizza. On August 27, 2007, McDonald's sold Boston Market to Sun Capital Partners • Notably, McDonald's has increased shareholder dividends for 25 consecutive years , making it one of the S&P 500 Dividend Aristocrats . In October 2012, its monthly sales fell for the first time in nine years For more information : Case Study Help
  7. 7. TYPES OF RESTAURANTS • Most standalone McDonald's restaurants offer both counter service and drive-through service, with indoor and sometimes outdoor seating. Drive-Thru, Auto-Mac, Pay and Drive, or "McDrive" as it is known in many countries, often has separate stations for placing, paying for, and picking up orders, though the latter two steps are frequently combined; it was first introduced in Arizona in 1975, following the lead of other fast-food chains. The first such restaurant in Britain opened at Fallowfield , Manchester in 1986 • In some countries, "McDrive" locations near highways offer no counter service or seating. In contrast, locations in high-density city neighborhoods often omit drive-through service. There are also a few locations, located mostly in downtown districts, that offer Walk- Thru service in place of Drive-Thru. For more information : Case Study Help
  8. 8. • Some locations are connected to gas stations/convenience stores, while others called McExpress have limited seating and/or menu or may be located in a shopping mall. Other McDonald's are located in Walmart stores. McStop is a location targeted at truckers and travelers which may have services found at truck stops • To accommodate the current trend for high quality coffee and the popularity of coffee shops in general, McDonald's introduced McCafé, a café-style accompaniment to McDonald's restaurants in the style of Starbucks. McCafé is a concept created by McDonald's Australia, starting with Melbourne in 1993. Today, most McDonald's in Australia have McCafés located within the existing McDonald's restaurant. InTasmania, there are McCafés in every store, with the rest of the states quickly following suit. After upgrading to the new McCafé look and feel, some Australian stores have noticed up to a 60% increase in sales. As of the end of 2003 there were over 600 McCafés worldwide For more information : Case Study Help
  9. 9. GLOBAL OPERATIONS • McDonald's has become emblematic of globalization, sometimes referred to as the "Mc Donaldization" of society. The Economist newspaper uses the "Big Mac Index": the comparison of a Big Mac's cost in various world currencies can be used to informally judge these currencies' purchasing power parity. Norway has the most expensive Big Mac in the world as of July 2011, while the country with the least expensive Big Mac is India • Some observers have suggested that the company should be given credit for increasing the standard of service in markets that it enters. A group of anthropologists in a study entitled Golden Arches East looked at the impact McDonald's had on East Asia, and Hong Kong in particular. When it opened in Hong Kong in 1975, McDonald's was the first restaurant to consistently offer clean restrooms, driving customers to demand the same of other restaurants and institutions. McDonald's has taken to partnering up with Sinopec, the second largest oil company in the People's Republic of China, as it takes advantage of the country's growing use of personal vehicles by opening numerous drive-thru restaurants . McDonald's has opened a McDonald's restaurant and McCafé on the underground premises. For more information : Case Study Help

  11. 11. PRODUCTS • McDonald's predominantly sells hamburgers, various types of chicken sandwiches and products, French fries, soft drinks, breakfast items, and desserts. In most markets, McDonald's offers salads and vegetarian items, wraps and other localized fare. On a seasonal basis, McDonald's offers the McRib sandwich. Some speculate the seasonality of the McRib adds to its appeal. Various countries, especially in Asia, are currently serving soup. This local deviation from the standard menu is a characteristic for which the chain is particularly known, and one which is employed either to abide by regional food taboos (such as the religious prohibition of beef consumption in India) or to make available foods with which the regional market is more familiar (such as the sale of McRice in Indonesia, or Ebi (prawn) Burger in Singapore). In Germany and other Western European countries, McDonald's sells beer. In New Zealand, McDonald's sells meat pies, after the local affiliate partially re launched the Georgie Pie fast food chain it bought out in 1996 For more information : Case Study Help
  12. 12. PRODUCT LINE
  13. 13. BUSINESS MODEL • McDonald's Corporation earns revenue as an investor in properties, a franchiser of restaurants, and an operator of restaurants. Approximately 15% of McDonald's restaurants are owned and operated by McDonald's Corporation directly. The remainder are operated by others through a variety of franchise agreements and joint ventures. • The McDonald's Corporation's business model is slightly different from that of most other fast-food chains. In addition to ordinary franchise fees and marketing fees, which are calculated as a percentage of sales, McDonald's may also collect rent, which may also be calculated on the basis of sales. As a condition of many franchise agreements, which vary by contract, age, country, and location, the Corporation may own or lease the properties on which McDonald's franchises are located. In most, if not all cases, the franchisee does not own the location of its restaurants. • It has been proven the McDonald's corporate model involves managers of a specific franchises systematically illegally withhold wages from employees when store sales exceed a set percentage of sales intake leaving high percentages of their workforce earning less than the minimum wage For more information : Case Study Help
  14. 14. CONCLUSION Mc d faces some difficulty and key to it’s future success will be maintaining it’s core strength an unwavering focus on quality and consistency while carefully experimenting with new options. These innovative initiative could include launching higher end restaurants under new brands that wouldn’t be saddled with Mc.d fast food image.
