I have never had too much interest in our dear fast food chums McDonald’s but their recent Twitter cock-up sparked my interest and I discovered some scary facts that I never knew before thanks to the Business Insider website. Click here to read the full list.
But the ones that really scared me were;
McDonald’s serves 1% of the world’s population every day and sells more than 75 hamburgers every second
McDonald’s’ $24 billion in revenue makes it the 90th-largest economy in the world. But counting $32 billion in revenue from franchise stores, McDonald’s claims the 68th biggest economy, bigger than Ecuador.
They have way too much power I reckon! But having said that so do far too many corporations.
