You know what’s better than a White Castle scented candle? A Big Mac. I’m not the only one who thinks so, either, according to the latest report from McDonald’s Corporation, the world’s largest restaurant company, which is saying that sales for the month of April rose 4.9 percent.
While sales in the United States rose 3.8 percent, which was right on target, an increase of 5.3 percent in Europe, and 3.9 in Asia, the Middle East and Africa, helped push the mammoth company above its projected global increase of 4.7 percent overall. Proof in the pudding that in today’s economy, people are opting for cheap over good, if you ask me.
Really, though, McDonald’s isn’t all that bad, as long as you’re not consuming it all Supersize Me like. With their value meals that cater to local tastes, they have something for everyone. Don’t forget about the toys, either. What better way to shut the kids up than to stuff a cheeseburger in their mouth, and a transforming Rubik’s cube in their hands?
With many more locations being renovated across the world, look for sales to only continue to increase over the coming year. Should you have some extra cash lying around, it might not be a bad idea to invest in this blue chip, because it doesn’t look like your money will disappear anytime soon.
