As mentioned before, the current issue of Crain's Chicago Business contains an extensive article about conflicts between McDonald's Owner/Operators and corporate. In fact, the article is headlined on the cover of this week's print issue. something like this:
McDonald's franchisees push for more power
"A group representing about half of McDonald’s restaurant owners squares off over new performance standards, franchise renewals and spending mandates"
Now, Crain's is just one publication but this cover page is seen by all the pajama boys as well as everyone at their country clubs and the maitre d's at the finest restaurants in Chicago.
It's bound to be a Chicagoland embarrassment.
