Americans are obsessed with fast-food. They are so obsessed that 1/4 of the adult population ate at a fast food restaurant on any given day. McDonald’s is the most popular fast food restaurant with nearly 30 million people eating at McDonald’s every day and around 315 million people in the country, approximately 10% of the population is eating at Rotten Ronnies EVERY. SINGLE. DAY.
With their sales continuing to skyrocket, it’s no wonder McDonald’s felt the need to add another restaurant in between two other McDonald’s only a few miles in either direction near the corner of Dodd and Cedar in Lakeville. The restaurant is small, very small in fact, which will probably work well in a strip mall which doesn’t get all that much traffic or interest–yet. While a nearby Subway is usually empty, people are probably going to line up around the block to try this new McDonald’s on day one simply so they can have a chance to further contribute to this nation’s obesity and diabetes epidemics.
I can’t tell you how disgusting it was to see this sign on Cedar Ave the other day. Yes, I know this is commonplace with many restaurants, but I just can’t believe that in 2012 they still believe this is something they should be doing. I couldn’t imagine eating McDonald’s once a month, let alone once a day for a year. Gross.
What do you think about this one? Do you think it’s shameful and disgusting for McDonald’s to run such a promotion? Would you be willing to wait in line to get free Rotten Ronnies for a year? Do you think it’s funny the sign is pointed towards the south side of Cedar rather than the north to avoid getting as much attention? Whatever you have to say about this one go ahead and comment on as I’d love to hear your thoughts.
