    In case you haven't noticed, McDonald's charge DIFFERENT prices in different stores for the SAME items!

    It might only be a 10p difference on an item but it adds up if buying for a family or you regularly visit that particular restaurant over a long period. Sometimes price differences can be even more e.g. Beef & Cheese Feast meal is currently 5.89 in one local restaurant but 6.19 in another store a couple of miles away. A 30p difference!

    So, if you live near more than one McDonald's restaurants, find out which one is the cheapest and then...let your friends know too!

    The movie depicting the birth of Mcdonalds with Ray Kroc is very good.It is called 'The Founder'.
    As of prices,a lot of franchises will have all different prices based on an area usually.

    Good old Ray Kroc. There is a book called grinding it out. Its absolutely fascinating when as a milkshake mixer salesman he visits the McDonalds that two brothers own and has a lighbulb moment that this model of consistency and cleanliness could be stamped out into every town. There rest is history. And for the story behind the fillet of fish... get the book.
