McDonald’s Sales Up Since Swapping To Fresh Beef


(CNN) – Customers are “loving it!”

McDonald’s is reaping the benefits of fresh beef.

The fast food giant swapped out frozen patties from its quarter pounder last year and sales of the iconic burger are up 30%.

The USA Today reports McDonald’s sold 40 million more Quarter Pounder burgers nationally in the first quarter of this year compared to the quarter in 2018.

Meanwhile, as plant based options grow McDonald’s has not announced plans for a meatless burger in the United States.

It did unveil “the big vegan ts” in Germany last month, but no plans yet to bring it to the U.S.

A McDonald’s rep says the company will “understand the changing trends and figure out how to deliver.”
