McDonalds is the worlds largest fast food chain. With a presence in 120 countries and serving 54 million customers each day globally, they have revolutionised the fast food industry in its fairly short life of 68yrs.

They have also been pegged as the owners of the most privately owned playgrounds in the US and boast being the worlds largest buyers for apples, beef, pork and potatoes. The corporate giant is also pegged to have employed at least 1 in every 8 Americans at some point of their work life.

A very interesting observation, is that no two countries who have at least one McDonalds present, have ever gone to war with eachother.
Also very interesting, is that the company's main source of revenue is NOT burgers as most would predict, but rather rent collected from franchise owners, making McDonalds the only company to own hold property title deeds in 120 countries.

    I don't know about "deprived"! Honestly Maccy D's isn't great. I can't remember the last time I've eaten there in SA. The food is kind of depressing here, considering that Nando's is triple the goodness :)

    I don't like McDonalds one bit. If only you could have a In-N-Out burger. You'd never settle for anything less in the realm of burgers ever again. You'll have to come to California or Arizona though, as they only have stores there, heh. Worth the trip if you ask me.
