McDonald's has always been a fast food powerhouse! A titan of industry!
But their sales actually fell in October!
That's the first monthly drop in almost a decade!
Global sales at restaurants open at least a year fell 1.8% in October. The last time something like this happened was 2003.
The weakened economy, and more competition are to blame for the drop.
Though we feel it could be something else too…
What if people were making healthier decisions?
Maybe people are realizing how bad processed, salty, fatty foods are for them.
And though we never want to see an American business struggle, we do want to see the American people live healthier!
Don't worry about Mickey Ds… we're sure they'll be just fine.
