No, McDonalds is incredibly strong. Part of this is because they are "not in the hamburger business, but the real estate business." They own land and sell franchising rights. This is a very sustainable model for them.

I hear they even have salads now. 

Sure, but they are terrible. It's a box of wilted lettuce and a packet of dressing.

I liked the Southwestern chicken salad, that certainly wasn't a box of wilted lettuce.

I've never seen one. I've only seen the garden salad.

If McDonalds made Halal stores for Muslims (by Muslim conditions of slaughtering) then they will win much more..

How do you know they are not Halal? I wanted to have some information about this topic, i once asked the branch in Jbeil (I live in Lebanon btw) from where they get their meat, they told me all the branches get their meat from Australia. So i thought there is some kind of international committee that supervises on these kind of stuff around the world.

However burger king get their meat from Saudi Arabia and once i heard that Saudi get this meat from outside the country. So i don't know what to believe. It's been like 3 years I'm not eating from these places cause of these issues.

But why? I don't understand why you would think McDonald's would be out of business. If McDonald's went out of business, it would be on the news.

I don't think McDonalds is dying, they have been consistently able to re-brand themselves cater to what the population wants. For example, In Canada, their was a slight decrease in people physically visiting McDonald locations. To counter that, they introduced the FilotOfish, BigMac and McChicken Sauces to retail markets such as Walmart, IGA & Provigo. Also, as the trends of eating breakfast later on in the day increase, and as people tend to be more health conscious, they have advertised 24/7 Breakfasts and put on emphasis on their salads and healthier menu's. They constantly adapt and evolve to try and retain their market share.

@sidnaq

Mcdonald's might not be the busiest junk food joint in North America but it is definitely gaining new markets and expanding exponentially in place where hitherto it didn't have a presence. 

Our city got our first ever McDonald's last year in 2016. The queues are baffling.

Earlier this year a new franchise opened about 150 KM away from here in a smaller town. Again, the queues are baffling.

According to our Sunni brothers meat from Christians and Jews is permitted, but for Shias it is totally different.

 

Jbeil is a christian-dominated, I am from there but I never saw a Halal restaurant, every thing there like McDonald's and Hardees gets it's meat from places like Australia and N.America and Europe as well...although once I heard that KFC is halal and gets it's meat from a farm belonging to a Shia owner at Lebanon, she was religious and telling me that, although I won't trust till I see with my eyes....

@M.IB Ah so we can't know if they are halal like @sidnaq said, because lebanon has a huge islam population.

Yes i know about jbeil i dont eat there at all but it was a coincidence that i passed and asked from their branch. To be honest the best tasteful meat is from dahye and shiite areas but i cant always go there. 

About KFC its 100% halal i know someone who works there he's a committed shia. If you want i can ask him about the name of the brand and let you know.

        This may or may not be true. But I think it does make sense that the initial round-up of the billionaires was done by a foreign agency and not Saudis. The simple reason being that if Saudis had been involved someone would have tipped off the currents guests of the Carlton Ritz. IMHO.
    • We human beings are open systems, we need continuous interaction with environment to survive. The environment of space is not suitable for us, hence it seems impossible that we would evolve such organs which help us to survive up there. We are built to live on earth, that is the truth, we must remember that fact. And we should also remember the fact that everything has a fate, including this whole universe. So if we start planning to leave earth now, we would need to plan to leave the milky way galaxy afterwards.... 

        
    • I personally dont own a car. I have a driving licence but I am not brave enough to drive. When I took part in driving classes I really liked driving and I thought that my driving was very good but when the instructor told me that I was not good in half-clutch driving, I somewhat lost my confidence. Even once I got in my father's car and started driving but I forgot to release the parking brake and so I drove with much difficulty because the brake was unreleased. Then when I returned and parked the car, I found out my mistake!
    • SCIENCE alone is insufficient.
      It can only determine truth in the Physical. It can only determine truth about an observable phenomenon. But with SCIENCE came Technology. Technology has made it so easy to look up information that there is no reason to think or have to do work. There is no emphasis on REASON anymore! We are becoming slaves to the materialistic system.  But Pure Reason is also insufficient. 
      Aristotle was one of the great champions of pure reason in ancient Greece. He believed heavy objects fall faster than light ones. And since Aristotle believed it and Aristotle was an authority on such matters, it remained the accepted wisdom for over a thousand years until Galileo decided to test the proposition. 
      As it turns out, heavy objects fall at the same rate as light objects (discounting wind resistance). So Aristotle was wrong and it took a single well designed experiment to overturn a thousand years of received wisdom.  Every object on this planet, independent of size, experiences the same (Constant acceleration) gravitational acceleration so all falling objects have the same acceleration.  That is what Galileo did. That was the part that was missing from pure reason. That is the part that science adds.
