There is nobody who doesn’t know who McDonalds are, who don’t instantly recognise their iconic yellow M in shopping centres, towns and cities across the length and breadth of the UK. Everyone has their favourite McDonald’s snack, whether it’s a breakfast muffin, a burger and fries for lunch or a deli wrap for a tasty snack.
What many don’t know, however, is the work that goes on behind the scenes of the best known chain of fast foods restaurants in the world. To take the emphasis off the food, albeit it delicious, a new short video has been released which is called the A-Z of McDonald’s, and is a real eye opener into the world behind the smiling faces and pristine restaurants.
Starting with A for the apples in their fruit bags, then not surprisingly B for beef, but it then slips into interesting territory as it tells you the kind of facts that you probably wouldn’t know about unless you worked there. C, for example, you expect to stand for chicken, but who knew that they recycled their used cooking oil into bio-fuel?
E is for the eggs they use; a little known fact is that they are all free range too. Fast forward to Hand this stands for hours as it reveals that they spend 16,800 hours a day, on average, training their staff to ensure that customers get the excellent customer service to match up to their food.
L is for MacDonald’s litter patrols who do their utmost to keep the British streets clean and tidy, and M is for the miles that they walk while doing this. V represents all the volunteers they are currently training to take part in the London 2012 Olympics and once it has reached Z, it tells us that all of this is what makes McDonald’s.
