There's Some AMAZING News For McDonalds In Australia

Fast food giant McDonalds has Australia to thank for its turnaround in fortunes.

After suffering falling sales, the US chain revealed that its sales in the last 6 months are now up 6.6 per-cent.

The US result was the company’s best for five years while the UK, Canada, Germany and China were also standout markets.

However, it’s not the healthy options that are getting people back on board or Big Macs, it’s those new post burgers that were first available in Australia that people are eating.

We have always been a road-tester for McDonald's and with new store features such as self-serve kiosks appearing and being a success, they are now being rolled out world-wide.

Since taking over two years ago, Mr Easterbrook has launched new products, such as all day breakfasts and auto ordering booths across many of its key global markets.

He said cheap soft drinks in the US coupled with the roll out of a “Signature Crafted” premium burger range had attracted customers back through the doors.
