Fun Facts about McDonald's
McDonald’s calls people who eat a lot of their food “heavy users”. Seems appropriate if you think about it.

The average wait time at McDonalds is 90 seconds.

McDonalds used to sell Pizza in 1989.
The reason why they stopped (apparently it’s not because is was an abomination) selling pizza from their menu is because the cooking time averaged 11 minutes, and McDonald’s wanted to keep its reputation for fast service.

The farthest away you can be from a McDonald’s in the U.S is 107 miles.
Such point is located in the state of South Dakota where you may be 107 miles away from the location called McGriddle.

McDonalds and NASA once planned a joint advertised space mission to the asteroid 449 Hamburga; however, it ended up being cancelled last minute.

Back in 1968 McDonald’s airlifted hamburgers to homesick U.S. Olympic Athletes in France.

Only seven items on the McDonald’s menu contain no sugar. I’m actually surprised there are that many.

McDonald’s opens a new restaurant every four hours.

The $8.7 billion in revenue from franchise stores alone, makes McDonald’s richer than the entire country of Mongolia.

According to company estimates, one in every eight American workers has been employed by McDonald’s at some point in their life.

For the past 30 years, there has been a fake McDonald’s used only for commercials and movies. It contains every uniform and furniture scheme for any market in the world.

Each year, McDonald’s buys 3.4 billion pounds of potatoes.
The company claims to be the biggest consumer of that particular vegetable.

In Japan, Ronald McDonald is known as “Donald McDonald” to make pronunciation easier for the Japanese. You can’t make that stuff up.

McDonald’s has sold well over 100 billion hamburgers.

McDonald’s employs over 761,000 people, which is more than the population of Luxembourg.

McDonald’s Caesar salad is more fattening than its hamburger. So stop trying to do the healthy thing by ordering off of McDonald’s green menu.

One of the people who introduced McDonalds to the UK later ran a computer software company called CISS (Computer Information System Specialists). I worked for that company for a few years.
