But our burgers are no different then a home made burger, our salads are really good, you can take grilled chicken instead of crispy chicken and ease on the sauce or none at all.. Our fish is 100% fish, our chicken is 100% chicken, so is our beef.. the snack wraps have a grilled option also.

Go to a supermarket and most of the chicken nuggets you'll find are processed, so are the burgers unless u buy fresh ground beef.
Your chicken and beef are probably the worst beef you can buy. Please don't call a duck a moose when it is clearly a duck.

Quite a bit. I can't say I ever mix those ingredients the way McDonald's does. It's nearly impossible to get the 'good' stuff McDonald's serves without something else undesirable mixed in. The bread is white, the meat is high in fat and or fried, the drinks are high in processed sugar, corn syrup and fat. Yes, there may be a few low fat, low carb, low sugar not heavily processed items on the menu if you happen to be in the right neighborhood, but most of what Mickey d's serves is junk food.

I don't add ridiculous amounts of sugar and salt to everything when I'm at home. Also, the McD's in the states don't use Heinz ketchup.....McD's makes it own in Oak Brook, IL and it has a bunch more sugar compared to Heinz.

I understand you guys work there, but trying to pass off McD's food as just as healthy as cooking at home is hilarious to me.

Would you see anything wrong with eating at McD's daily? Do you see people that do that?

Some things on the menu are very healthy and some things are plain out unhealthy it's all about your personal choice. I eat it every day and am still in great shape.. 5-11 170 Bearely no fat

parents also own a couple stores. dad started out as a crew member, then manager then into and up in corporate then left to run his own. he also taught at Hamburger University for awhile (yes, that's a real thing)

question for steven747 - are you working up to becoming certified owner/operator so you can take over the stores down the road?


I worked there throughout highschool - will jump in and answer a few as well.

You can just look at a McD's burger compared to a better fast food restaurant (Hardees/Carls Jr. comes to mind) and see that it is an inferior grade of meat. McD's is the lowest common denominator of fast food, period.

I'm not saying you guys can't be great in terms of operations and selling a lot of food, but at the end of the day, most of the food is completely unhealthy and doesn't taste good.

There is a reason the dude in Supersize me blimped up.

Prochaine, IMO, I don't think you're going to sell McD's as a super healthy option. It is what it is - a fast food restaraunt.

That being said, they have made an effort in recent years to offer more healthy options - milk, apple bites, granola, more salads, more chicken options.
