McDonald's - additional information

McDonald’s is one of the most well-known quick service chains worldwide. Starting out as a barbeque restaurant set up by brothers Richard and Maurice McDonald in California in 1940, the foodservice company soon evolved into a humble production-line style burger stand. Since then, McDonald’s has grown into a global giant with increasing numbers of stores year-on-year – in 2018, McDonald’s had 37,855 restaurants worldwide. McDonald’s was by far the most valuable fast food brand in 2018. With a brand value of more than 126 billion U.S. dollars.

In 2018, McDonald’s generated revenues of more than 21 billion U.S. dollars, the largest proportion of which came from the U.S. Despite the company’s revenue success, McDonald's has received a lower than average American Customer Satisfaction Index score for several consecutive years leading up to 2018.

Competition is something McDonald’s will have to get used to, especially in the huge and ever-growing fast food industry in the United States. However, in 2018 the company still outpaced its closest competitor, Starbucks, by a long shot. That year, McDonald’s was also the eighth largest brand overall worldwide.
