>get 2 dollar menu items for 2 dollars
FUCKING

GENIUS
>>
how does this boost business when its pretty much the same thing as the dollar menu except now you're forced to get 2 items
>>
>implying the mcdingle was $1 in the past multiple years

$4 in Alaska.

They didn't have the marinara when I went the other week. It was bretty heartbreaking.

just the cost of living in the best state in the union. seriously, I don't live there, but every time I've gone has been wonderful
>>
>>7298761
It boosts business because it's still cheaper than alternatives. Who orders 1 item anyways? This just makes it convenient and official.
>>
>>7298760
Can you get two mcdoubles for your option? I hear the commercial on the radio all the time and it implies you get to choose a mcdouble, mcchicken, or four piece nugget and pair it with cheese sticks or fries. I tried it once with spicy mcchicken and cheese sticks. meh.

>>7298774
they aren't great. bland and too salty at the same time. stupid ass meme box.
>>
McDoubles are over $1, somewhere around $1.25 nowadays
>>
>>7298773
Why eat McDonald's in Alaska? Go out and catch some salmon.
>>
>>7298858
Yes you can get two mcdoubles. What is the difference between the mcdouble and the double cheeseburger? I noticed the dbl chsbrger is more expensive
>>
>>7298870
2 slices of cheese instead of 1
>>
Do the mozzarella sticks come with marinara?
>>
>>7298843
When I go to mcdonalds I order a single cheeseburger no drink no fries.

Fite me irl fgt.
>>
>>7298875
Yes.
>>
>>7298862
so how are they expecting to make profit selling two of them for $2? My guess is they are taking a loss if you get two mcdoubles or a mcdouble and a mcchicken. But they are betting on people wanting a sandwich and a less expensive side like fries or mozzarella sticks. Plus people buy drinks, pure profit. I guess the strategy works, I don't eat mcdonalds much and went to try the cheese sticks.

Not everyone dedicates a trip to McDonalds soley for the purpose of fast food.

He probably made a stop there after taking care of other errands. Dumbass, try creative thinking before you spout off stupid shit.

Isn't that just two 1 dollar menu items then?

yeah but a canadian dollar is worth like 11 cents

>not getting two mcdoubles, removing ketchup and mustard and substituting big mac sauce

It's literally two big macs without the lettuce and unimportant middle bread slice for around *half* as much as *one* big mac

>>7299002
As much as I think the Big Mac is a delicious burger at the deepest depths of my heart, I know it is meant to be ultimately unfulfilling and to leave the impoverished with the idea that they need more of it. I can attest to it's unfulfillingness, even as a chairman of a competitive multi-galactical burger conglomerate.
>>
>>7299031

I'm fully aware of how it's shilled to the poor, but I don't think it's wrong to enjoy it occasionally anyways. I even get fries and a sugary drink with it to complete the circle.
>>
$2 for 6 mozzarella sticks with sauce at a fast food joint doesn't seem all that bad. I've seen some pretty fucking expensive mozzarella sticks at those places.
>>
the mcdonalds near me has wifi and outlets. I can buy one of those $1 drinks, and refill it all day, and get 3 mcpick 2's a day, that's 3 meals, infinite drinks, and wifi for just under 8 bucks a day with tax. I can save a lot of money on my internet and food costs.
>>
>>7299070
the more I think about this the more enticing it is. grab a table, plug in phone and laptop, shitpost and game all day, eat mcpick 2's and chug infinite soda, duck into the bathroom every couple hours with my phone to fap.

I had this shitty food while I was out in the cold yesterday. the mozzarella and the spicy mcchicken. I made them into one sandwich. Honestly? Not that great, but there's something really fulfilling about being in the cold and eating warm passable food. I used to go to this fast food with no lobby just like today with my sister growing up, we'd stand under their outdoor heat lamp eating our meal, so sitting on the dry part of the cement curb with ice and snow, wrapped for the weather and watching people with actual cars roll by out the drive through was pretty fun. might do it again.

McDonalds, like papy johns, and most other chain resturants make money selling product to their franchises..
>>
>>7298760

Here in Bumbfuckistan, Indiana, none of those items are $1. The cheapest are the cheese sticks and McChicken for $1.19

The most I've gotten at once was three mcdoubles and three mcchickens (the only food I ate throughout the day) but I kinda want to get five of each because 'merica

What are the normal prices anyways? I've only been to Mcdonald's a couple times in the last year. Mcdoubles were like $1.29 or something I think.
>>
>>7299709
they're talking about eating fast food at walmart, bro. i don't think you posting "flyovers lol" is going to upset them.
>>
>>7299713
The dollar menu was a dollar until about 18 months ago, then it changed to the "value" menu and the prices went up by about 50-99 cents.

I only eat there at work if i forget to bring lunch because its about 500 feet from my office, and I only order off the "value" menu because everything else is not worth the price.
>>
>>7298760
>>7298761
>thinking any of those items cost $1
They even made the mcchicken $1.19 and the mcdouble jumped to $1.49

you what?

Aren't their drinks ridiculously cheap most of the time though? Around here you get any size for the same price, last I checked at least.

I didn't even realize that this was a thing. I was driving around for work yesterday and stopped at a recently built McDonald's to take a leak. Ordered two mcdoubles and a large tea, paid and was surprised to see my meal cost a little over $3. Can't complain.
>>
>>7298843
Suppose you just want 3 items? That's a lot of calories right there. Throwing on a 4th is more than overkill.

Not that I really care, it's not a huge deal. Just give the last item to a dog or a hobo or a friend (or all three in one). But I forsee a lot of diversity putting up a fuss at being forced to follow this scheme.
>>
>>7298862
McDoubles are $2 over here...

I hope McD crashes hard and reboots back into the glorious franchise of cheap fastfood they once were.
There's nothing worth getting at McD nowadays. I'll rather spent $10 at Chipotle or a salad than the sorry food they serve now.
>>
>>7298760
McDonalds manager here.

Yes, this was a great thing started by McDonalds. Forcing people to buy two for more profit.

It really did too. Everyone is crazy about the new "dollar menu" It was good timing as well, since Jan/Feb are the slowest months out of th year.

Soon we will be implementing a 2 for $5 menu for the (I think) Bigmac, 1/4 pounder, md fry?, and filet o fish.
If either of you have any questions feel free to ask.
>>
>>7299705
I can tell you it is not temporary.

>>7300992
That basically already happened.

The company completely restructured itself last year and starting this year and following years there will be better quality (such as our new seared 1/4 pounders or putting seasoning on our grilled chicken)

Better value for the customer is the main goal. We even went meme food and put kale in our salad blend.

If people eat inside the restaurant instead of using the drive thru, is their food served on plates? Also, are you supposed to tip if you eat there?
>>
>>7302639
you can tip if you really feel like it, ive gotten a few tips. if you eat inside they are supposed to give you a tray with a liner on it. the trays are wiped down with some towels that sit in some kind of cleaning solution/water
>>
this only fucks me over...they do a similar deal for breakfast. I used to sometimes get a sausage mcmuffin for $1+tax..now sausage mcmuffin is like $1.39+tax, meaning for $2+tax I can get two of them..well I don't really need two but I guess maybe I've got a little jew in me and I can't resist paying .60 cents more for that second one. I usually eat it for lunch or something..but basically I'm now spending $1 more and consuming 400 more shitty calories every time I make the bad decision to go to mcdicks for breakfast. Guess i'll wake up 10 minutes earlier and fire up the frying pan.
>>
>>7302720
forget 10 minutes, how about a week ahead of time

http://www.artofmanliness.com/2016/01/08/save-time-and-money-with-make-ahead-breakfast-sandwiches/

you now have no reason to go to mcD breakfast

What happened to the break menu with the fish filet and small fry for $2.50? I didn't think this 2 for $2 shit would replace it. Seems like all of these value menus are trial runs
>>
>>7302757
Not the anon you asked, but I think it depends on the franchise or the location. There is only one mcdonalds in texas that serves mcgriddle and biscuits all day instead of mcmuffin.

not 100% sure why, probably has to do with the amount of space in our grill assembly area, during lunch the spots where we keep the mcriddles are replaced with things like lettuce and onions and shit, no room for the mcgriddles

right, the premise of this thread is invalid unless those items cost 1$ which they don't, at least where I live (S.C.). Mcdeuce is 1.39 minimum.

it's 2 or 4 or 6 ...... bt odd items are at regular price , stupid.

We don't have the 4 piece nuggies as part of the pick 2. A 6 piece would be $3.19, which is fucking outrageous. Pick 2 is fucking legit. 2 McDoubles is a shit ton of food for $2. You have to fix them up like Big Macs, of course.
