Mcdonalds in London
Mcdonalds is still very popular here in the UK/london, despite the fact that the vast majority of their calories are highly processed carbohydrates.
I went to my local Mcdonalds near my work during the nightshift recently, just for a change and because I havent had it in years, and even at 9pm at night, there was a queue for the drive-thru aswell as a standing queue of people that spilled all the way out to the entrance.
Everyone "knows" Mcdonalds is unhealthy, but walk into any chain in london and youll see business is booming for them. Ironically, the majority of the people eating at Mcdonalds are slim or only slightly over-weight, and we dont judge them for eating there.. But if we spot a fat person at Mcdonalds, we are instantly like "eeh dafuq? He shouldnt be allowed to eat here!"
I think fast food in general is a booming business, fried chicken shops litter literally every street in london. There is no better business model than cheap, tasty food. The only reason these people running these shops are not making more money is because competition is fierce.
