" McDonald’s franchisees are not allowed to sell the brand’s retail coffee inside its restaurants. This is in contrast to Starbucks, where its cafes are filled with retail-esque products and various other merchandise"INDEED. They built the brand with OPERATOR cash.MMGAJoin the NOA !
If there is any concrete evidence that management does not care about owner store level economics, this is it. We just spent $$$ installing new espresso machines. This is to support management launching a Starbucks Double Shot and other bottleed espresso type beverages in grocery stores. Thanks, Steve and Chris. Not.

As I've said before, the operators only have themselves to blame. Very few stood up against this "grocery store" competition 6 years ago when presented. Not that it would have made any difference, however.
