McDonald's CEO Discusses Q4 2012 Results

There was a lot of discussion about new McDonald's stores on today's conference call. 
The thought of new stores thrills some McDonald's Operators and terrifies others 
because of cannibalization.  

These transcripts are an easy read and very informative.

Has anybody else noticed the abysmal service/support we are getting lately from our corporate "partners"? Training is stretched or non existant, Marketing SNAFUs abound, and McD is VERY SLOW in replacing field staff who move on. Even some top management have been purged.All of this might indicate a belt tightening or a not so rosy view of the future by Corp. Maybe I need to dump some of my McD stock before it falls to 13 again???

The corporate folks appear to be in a constant state of panic. I worry about their health.

There is no relationship between McDonald‟s Corporation and operators. We are only told what to do. Operators themselves will now attack other operators that do not support heavy discounting or question anything. Company has hand-picked these operators for this and has cut them special deals to do so. Meetings are now staged.

Careful who you eat chicken wings with this Superbowl weekend! They (Corp. staff) may be betting on the game, or they may be scouting for Corp.
