Why doesn't McDonald's sell hotdogs?
They do sometimes. This is from the McDonald's Wiki page:
Hot Dogs - In his 1977 autobiography CEO Ray Kroc prohibited the company from selling hot dogs, regardless of potential demand, as he regarded them as unhygienic; however, hot dogs were introduced in the late 1990s at some midwestern located stores (at the option of the franchise-holder) as a summer item. UK Stores sold Hot Dogs during the late nineties on the McChoice menu (later PoundSaver). Also, at least one American restaurant offered Oscar Mayer hot dogs at some time, notably in Bethel Park, Pennsylvania, and McDonald's locations at Toronto Metro Zoo and SkyDome in Toronto offered hot dogs until 1999. In Tokyo locations hot dogs were available in 2001, and have been reintroduced for 2009, dubbed the "McHot Dog."
I was thinking it might be for health reasons. Hot Dogs can be cooked but then it is difficult to keep them fresh for any length of time. I once had a Hot Dog from a shop that had been cooked a long time before I ate it. The resulting food poisining was not very pleasant, I can assure you.
It's not popular? It's not in demand? It's not profitable? It takes to long to cook? There could be plenty of reasons...
If you really wanna know I'd call up mcdonald's and ask haha.
They're trying to keep things simple. There was some survey recently that people who have large and varied numbers of products do worse than people who have simpler product lines.
That question has never even crossed my mind until now lol. I would guess because hamburgers is like, the 'American' food and more people like hamburgers than hot dogs. :)
they used 2 they ssometimes still also maybe they dont want mc donalds associated with cooking dogs I don't know though
Because could you walk up to the counter and, with a straight face, ask for a mcweiner, then ask to super size it?
I think they should sonics does and while we are changing things make breakfast a 24hr option too
hotdogs are nasty..as is mcdonalds.
I agree with rainbow lol
