Opinion on McDonald's from Crains Chicago Business

"But how many customers lured by ads for a $1 cheese-burger will shell out four
times that for an Angus burger? Lower prices won't help McDonald's franchisees
already struggling to preserve profits as food costs rise. This is the inherent tension
in the company's relationship with franchisees: McDonald's takes its money off the
top as a percentage of restaurant sales, while franchisees pocket what's left over
after paying all the expenses of running the restaurants."

The McDonald's Barbell is seriously out of balance. Those of us who enjoy bench pressing know that when the barbell gets out of balance somebody's going to lose a trachea.
