MacDonald's Falling on Hard Times?
I can't remember seeing a MacDonald's close down in Japan. MacDonald's are pretty much an immovable part of any town around the world!
Yet in the last couple of weeks this is the sight I've seen not once, but twice! Although MacD fought through the recession and seemed pretty impervious to it due to a clever campaign of price reductions!
However, recently MacD increased some of its prices here in Japan, and the result has been notable as a big drop in revenue!
Could this be just a a small ditch in the road or something bigger? Is fast food just too unhealthy these days?
Are we looking for a more healthy lifestyle?
What do you think?
