Fat Whores, Activate! McDonald's Is Phasing Out Self-Serve Soda Stations

Earlier this summer, McDonald's disappointed its McCafe regulars by announcing that it was discontinuing a trio of baked favorites. Not only that, but its apple fritters, blueberry muffins, and cinnamon rolls were pulled from the menu almost immediately. The fast food giant has announced that another big change is coming to its restaurants — but this time, we could have nine years to come to terms with it.

I am more disturbed by the fact that this article was published by Food & Wine.

The single service lid dispenser never worked right. This means every person that was there before you has touched the lids before you did.

Chipotle also had an outbreak they couldn’t clearly define where it came from, other than perhaps an outside source, contaminating open cutlery.

The other reason is homeless people using the fountain, Bleh.

The franchise model is a race to the bottom. McDonalds was just complaining that they can't go to 20/hr with the franchise model, because probably 60% of the locations or more have no business being open in the first place. They'll do all this nickel and diming but they would never shrink down to a sustainable level. Out of the nearest 8-10 McDonalds to me only two of them are busy and have halfway competent workers. The other ones are just homeless shelters and the employees give off a vibe that they might stab you if you ask for ketchup.
