On September 9th McDonald’s will be unveiling Mighty Wings. McDonald’s tested this latest menu item in Chicago and also in Atlanta. McDonald’s has confirmed that they will be selling the Mighty Wings in orders of three, five and 10 pieces, starting at $2.99.
On September 1st Burger King will introduce a French Free Burger for $1! This will be a standard hamburger that will have four french fries on top of the hamburger patty. Honestly – this is a little exciting. For anyone who has ever had a Panini’s Sandwich in Cleveland or a Primanti Bros. sandwich in Pittsburgh we already know that adding french fries to a sandwich is awesome.

The world of Fast Food is filled with both successes and failures. We are all familiar with the successes that have become a part of our regular vocabulary. Big Mac, Whopper, Burrito Supreme… the list really could go on and on. But, we tend to forget how many failures pave the way for those successes and how difficult it is for large scale restaurant chains to alter or add to their menus at all.
Here at Foodio54 – we wanted to remind you of just a few of those failed attempts that never made the cut at some of the most popular fast food restaurants in America.
1 – McLobster – McDonald’s
Time Period: 1993
McDonald’s has never had much luck trying to add anything to their seafood options. The McLobster was an attempt to add a menu item for people with dietary restrictions that … Read More »
Last month the headlines were abound with articles ridiculing the proposed budget for McDonald’s hourly employees making $7.25 hourly. The budget journal, a result of McDonald’s joining forces with Visa, proposed that its workers have two full-time jobs and pay as little as $20 a month for health insurance and $600 a month for rent. It was unrealistic and laughed at by all.
Now labor organizers are calling upon fast-food workers across the country to go on strike August 29th to pressure restaurant chains to raise the hourly wage from an average of $8.94 to $15. One-day job walkouts are expected to take place in New York City, Washington D.C., St. Louis, Milwaukee, and Detroit.
The spokesperson for the website promoting the event, LowPayIsNotOk.org, has stated that companies like McDonald’s, Wendy’s, Burger King, Taco Bell, KFC, Pizza Hut, Domino’s, Little Caesars, Subway, … Read More »
This is only controversial because folks need to lighten up a bit. Hilarious Burger King! Enjoy…
Burger King posted a 4.2% same-store sales increase unlike McDonalds who posted flat same-store sales during December. I think that this could play out interestingly with my Burger War prediction.
So McDonalds execs see that Burger King and the Whopper are outperforming them and then begin to promote the Big Mac hard-core…which they need to do anyways. Honestly, doesn’t everyone laugh at the Burger King Commercials? The King commercials were hilarious and now the new Whopper Freak-Out commercials are friggen hilarious too.
What is the last good McDonalds commercial you can think of?…. Can you think of a good one. I actually cannot think of one.
You know what that means? McDonalds advertising is not effective.
Anyways, so because the execs see this trend they fire their current advertising company and hire a new edgy company and start promoting the hell out of the … Read More »
