Over the last thirteen fiscal years, McDonald’s revenue achieved its peak in 2013 at 28.11 billion U.S. dollars. Since this peak, the revenue has decreased annually over the last three years, hitting 21.03 billion U.S. dollars in 2018.

McDonald’s was founded in California in the United States in 1940. Its products include a variety of burgers, sandwiches, French fries, chicken nuggets, ice cream, soft drinks, and hot beverages. As well as these, McDonald’s serves breakfast items, such as breakfast muffins, pancakes, and bagels. On October 6 2015, U.S. restaurants began serving breakfast items throughout the entire day.

With a brand value of over 126.04 billion U.S. dollars, McDonald’s is by far the most valuable fast food brand in the world.
