    Apparently Vivek (rhymes with fake) made a bathroom stop on a hot mic.


    Absolutely not an accident.

    Funny thing will be when twatter does inevitably get banned, there will be a bunch of idiots screaming about free speech because A: as has been well established, they do not understand what free speech/1st Amendment actually is, and B: as I have recently learned, there is a not insignificant number of people who think that the US Constitution applies to the rest of the world.

    Birds of a feather.

    CosMc is McDonald's take on the lunch/afternoon/drive home customers that Starbucks, Dunkin', Sonic, and others have.

    It's going to be hard to wrestle those customers away.


    Also really disappointed they used a fringe character from the '80s when they could have made an absolute killing by including a Big Mac on the menu and promoting it with Mac Tonite as the mascot.

    Austin Texas council voted 9-2 to torpedo single family zoning and allow duplex’s and triplexes similar to Minneapolis (still not aware of really any SFHs that were converted to duplex or triplex here yet).

    Another decent idea that didn't take hold. The capital outlay the owner-operators were asked to shoulder was too high, the footprint of the kitchen in that version of their standard restaurant wasn't big enough for the ovens (it's since changed, recall all the nationwide remodeling that recently took place), etc. Oerthers in Orlando is a huge McDonald's owner operator and they made pizza work by changing the kitchen footprint and expanding the restaurant. They still had pizza long after everyone else abandoned it. Not sure if they still do, it's been 15+ years since I've been to one of their restaurants.

    The expanded coffee menu you can order from at a McD's is the only thing left from the McCafe days. They figured out how to stuff the coffee machine into a corner of the kitchen by the front counter where you place your order. What didn't survive is the meatloaf. Gotta tell ya, McDonald's meatloaf was pretty darned good.

    edit: Wikipedia says they more than quintupled their money between 1998 and 2006. That's pretty ****in good.

    That's exactly what I thought when I read this story.

    Not for McDonald's. They couldn't figure out what to do with it after they bought it. They turned around and sold it something like 4-5 years later. Their grand thinking at the time was for you to walk into a McDonald's and order a Big Mac and fries, 1/4 chicken dark, and a burrito bowl.
