New McDonald's Locations

We've posted an opinion piece concerning the development of new McDonald's
stores in the United States. At the top of our homepage, in the black bar below the
pretty picture, click on "Was McDonald's USA Saturated 15 Years Ago?"

Another way to get rid of the smaller o/os. Build stores around them until they are impacted out of business.

Seems the story has been the same for 15 yrs. An operator opens a new store that impacts one or more of their stores.O/o takes reduced profits fromm old stores
and lose $$$ in the new store. It's a net net loss for the organization.

Been an o/o for 30 years, turned down three stores in past five years due to high rent. And I'm still considered expandable.

Costs of projects keep going up. Furthermore the company needs to give us accurate real world cost projections. They can't give us cost projections, then we sign the agreement letter, and then a few weeks later tell us the price is going up because they forgot to include something after we have already committed to this bid.

On rent and rewrite, weighs on the mind of the O/O. With the reinvestment that is required, rent and rewrite plays an important piece in that decision. At a point, the rent starts to affect the drive of the O/O.
