  1. Find this initiative great! (Although no big fan of Mc’d)

    You have to offer something useful and pleasant to the people, what you can do during the store. And what is there pleasant as food & drink?

    I think the initiative of MC’D will find in many of his competitors or also restaurant operators inheritanceers who do not want to stand out in the competition.

    It is important that here is a positive upward spiral get started.
