Their stated goal is Long term sustainable growth for all stakeholders. McDonalds has realized that they are reaching a big maturation stage in the business cycle, based on its profits slowing down more and more every year. It is going to be time to reinvent or re-image this corporation to try to start the business cycle over again. McDonald’s Strategies : McDonald’s Strategies Recommendations for McDonald’s : Recommendations for McDonald’s More Healthy Choices McDonald’s should develop menu choices that are healthy and socially acceptable. It is possible to develop a menu that people will enjoy and that also fits into the original “Speedy Service” model the company introduced in the 1950’s. Use local food sources where possible. Using local sources decreases the time to market, and also decreases the use of fuel to transport goods. Recommendations : Recommendations Locally focused menu choices McDonald’s in India has specific menu items For the vegetarian market; Recommendations : Recommendations Increase presence in Asian countries McDonald's has most certainly had a profound effect on China. When the first McDonald's opened in Beijing more than a dozen years ago, 40,000 people lined up to observe a Big Mac and get their picture taken with the infamous Ronald McDonald.
