McDonald’s fast food has become an international hit and is arguably the most successful company in the history of quick service. We love the classic taste of this restaurant‘s burgers, chicken nuggets, and especially fries, but the low prices are what we love most of all! However, even the biggest McDonald’s fanatics are missing out on some key information- which we have created into a fun list for you! Don’t forget to come back soon for our part two article, featuring the top eight things that Ronald McDonald won’t tell you about this sinfully greasy and delicious destination!
Number Fifteen: The First Fast Breakfast
With fast food becoming such a hit, this big boss company found that many consumers were searching for a breakfast option with the same convenience. They created the Egg McMuffin in 1972, being the first quick service restaurant to introduce a breakfast option to their menu.
Number Fourteen: The Mass Revenue
Everyone knows McDonald’s to be the biggest name in fast food eating, raking in unimaginable amounts of money across its vast, international locations. If you were wondering, that figure is roughly $75 million – per day.
Number Thirteen: The Golden Arches
Brand awareness for the golden arches of McDonald’s have reached- dare we say it- stupid high levels. Studies have been done on the subject, and it has been found that more people worldwide recognize these arches than the Christian cross.
Number Twelve: A Meal and a Smile
Even as a fast food restaurant, McDonald’s is said to the largest distributor of toys in the whole world. Roughly 20% of the items sold at this restaurant are Happy Meals that each include a toy for the hungry little tikes. With a grand total of 68 million meals sold daily and 20% of those meals having a toy, it is easy to believe this claim.
Number Eleven: The Worst Option
Everyone is on their diet kicks these days and searching for the healthiest option, but have you ever wondered what the least healthy option is? Believe it or not, it is a breakfast item: The Big Breakfast featuring hotcakes, a biscuit, sausage, eggs, and a hash brown. All of this together adds up to 1,150 calories, 93 grams of fat, and a heartbreaking (literally) 2,260 milligrams of sodium.
Number Ten: Higher Education
Many people opt for McDonald’s as an employer to avoid going to college, but some people choose to work at McDonald’s just to go to one of the most elite Universities: the Hamburger University. These schools operate in Munich, Beijing, Brazil, Illinois, Oak Brook, Tokyo, and London to graduate as many as 275,000 elite managers to this day.
Number Nine: The Biggest McDonald’s
If you have ever wanted to see an oversized heart attack waiting to happen, you would have to travel to Orlando, Florida. Here, the world’s biggest McDonald’s location lies only a ten-minute drive from Walt Disney World. There are numerous floor, a 30,000-foot PlayPlace, a 500-gallon aquarium, and a diverse menu including all of your favorites in addition to paninis, wraps, cheesesteaks, and even pasta.
