Selling McDonald's Stores

Once you've told the corporate folks that
your stores are for sale it's certainly
appropriate to use the "partners" E-mail
system to let other Operators know
about the available opportunity.

But - in your message include a different
E-mail address for interested parties to
use when responding.

You do not want to have discussions about
the sale of your stores on the proprietary
McDonald's E-mail system.

If you don't have another address a free
account can be obtained at Gmail, Hotmail,
AOL, etc.

Questions about selling or pricing McDonald's
stores can be directed to:

operators should not fool themselves.
All traffic on the system is watched. You should have no expectation of privacy.

I don't think that's such a bad thing. It is a system owned and operated by MCD Corp. so they have their rights. With all the cheap or free E-mail services available I don't see how the Operators are harmed. Just download what you need and use your other account for normal communications. The more things you transmit on the partners system the bigger paper trail you are leaving.
