The news I saw this week was that the finance reports for 2011 are in. McDonald's 34.2 billion dollars, while Burger King made 8.4 billion and Wendy's made 8.5. This means Wendy's is now the second-biggest burger chain in the world.
Burger King, what happened?
The report said that Burger King has recently undergone a company-wide renovation, after a new company purchased it in 2010. The changes they made include getting rid of the creepy King mascot, new chicken tenders and new fries, unless I'm mistaken. So, either these new changes aren't doing so well, or Wendy's is having a really great year.
I'm surprised I haven't heard about the King being retired. Everyone I know hates the creepy King mascot. You'd think the news would have been all over Facebook.
Subway and Starbucks were #2 and #3 on the fast food places with the highest profits list, coming in after McDonald's but before Wendy's. So, I guess that means people prefer to eat at places that start with the letter "S".
