  • Honest Burgers

    Can burger sales stay strong in the face of increasing alternatives?


    Despite growing food adventurism, the proliferation of diverse cuisines and the ongoing rise of plant-based offerings, beef burgers still account for one in nine of every dinner consumed outside the home. Sales are also in year on year growth. As such, it is difficult to argue with leading US restaurateur, Danny Meyer, who said: “At the base level, a burger is a piece of meat and a bun with something on it. It’s simple but it seems to make a lot of people happy.”

  • McDonald's to Go Fleet Street

    McDonald’s to go – convenient format but with convenience pricing too


    Working not far from McDonald’s new take-away only concept store, simply called “to go” on Fleet Street, I had taken a healthy interest in the media coverage about the new format.

I had also read that that there would be a reduced menu within a reduced size outlet. What I had not expected is that there would be a price premium to pay.
