    McDonald’s and Wendy’s are both giving away free fries this week. On Wednesday, in celebration of National French Fry Day, McDonald’s will give away free orders of large fries with no purchase necessary. However, the free fries can only be ordered through the McDonald’s app, and customers must be members of the chain’s loyalty program. Similarly, Wendy’s on Monday announced the beginning of Fry Week, during which the chain is offering free fries with specific purchases that will change each day this week. For example, on Tuesday Wendy’s customers can get free medium fries with any salad purchase. As with McDonald’s, Wendy’s fries are free only if ordered through its app by a memberof the brand’s digital loyalty program. Ultimately the goal for McDonald’s, Wendy’s and other chains with loyalty programs is to increase sales and lure in customers — ideally on a daily basis — by offering reasons to choose them over their competitors. The programs also give restaurant owners access to customers’ data and ordering habits that help target diners with customized deals. On Monday, the 7-Eleven chain...

TikTok was abuzz last month with videos of drive-through employees at a Jack in the Box in Moreno Valley throwing drinks at a belligerent customer. Outside of a Carl’s Jr. in San Bernardino County, an employee found the body of an unhoused man in January.

    McDonald’s plant-based burger is finally available in the Bay Area. After test-marketing McPlant at eight restaurants across the United States, the company on Monday expanded the offering to 600 restaurants nationwide, including about 240 in the Bay Area, for a limited time. The widespread rollout comes nearly three years after competitors Burger King and Carl’s Jr. put meat-free burgers on their U.S. menus, although there has been test marketing of the McPlant in overseas markets including the United Kingdom, Sweden, Denmark, the Netherlands and Austria. Developed in partnership with Beyond Meat, the vegetarian patty is made from “plant-based ingredients like peas, rice and potatoes,” the company said in a statement. “The McPlant was created to give customers more delicious options in addition to the McDonald’s burger line-up you know and love, with fan favorites like the Big Mac and Quarter Pounder sandwich still available nationwide.” Like the Quarter Pounder, the McPlant comes with American cheese, tomato, lettuce, pickles, onions, mayonnaise, ketchup and mustard on a sesame seed bun.

Kempczinski said the restaurants using the voice-ordering technology are seeing about 85% order accuracy. Only about a fifth of orders need to be a taken by a human at those locations, he said, speaking at Alliance Bernstein's Strategic Decisions conference. Over the last decade, restaurants have been leaning more into technology to improve the customer experience and help save on labor. In 2019, under former CEO Steve Easterbrook, McDonald's went on a spending spree, snapping up restaurant tech. One of those acquisitions was Apprente, which uses artificial intelligence software to take drive-thru orders. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed. Kempczinski said the technology will likely take more than one or two years to implement. "Now there's a big leap from going to 10 restaurants in Chicago to 14,000 restaurants across...
    New York (CNN Business)McDonald's is the latest restaurant to say it's raising wages in a bid to attract workers. The company is increasing hourly employees' pay by about 10%, it announced Thursday -- but the change applies only to a small percentage of staff. Entry-level employees will earn at least $11 to $17 an hour, the company said in a statement. Shift managers will earn at least $15 to $20 an hour. The company has already started implementing the increases and will continue to roll them out in the months ahead.

    Jack Davis, The Western Journal March 8, 2021 0 Comments Customers pay the price when the minimum wage rises, according to new research. Progressives lost their effort to include an increase in the federal minimum wage as part of the coronavirus relief spending bill that cleared the Senate on Saturday. Their goal had been to more than double the federal minimum wage from its current level of $7.25 per hour to $15 per hour. However, a new study shows that minimum wage hikes resulted in higher prices, according to the Foundation for Economic Education. The paper, published by the National Bureau of Economic Research, looked at what happened at various McDonald’s restaurants when the minimum wage went up. “Our data imply that McDonald’s restaurants pass through the higher costs of minimum wage increases in the form of higher prices of the Big Mac sandwich,” Princeton economist Orley C. Ashenfelter and Czech economist Štěpán Jurajda wrote. After examining wage and price data from most of America’s McDonald’s restaurants, the researchers concluded there was a “full or near-full price pass-through of...

Toxic chemicals may be coating the wrappers and containers used at popular fast-food restaurants, according to a report titled “Packaged in Pollution: Are food chains using PFAS in packaging?” that was released Thursday by environmental advocacy groups Toxic-Free Future and Mind the Store.
