I hear Macdonald is very very cheap, maybe the cheapest food in the US., so rich people seldom or never buy it. But in the northeast of China, it's quite the opposite. Today when i stepped into a Macdonald store, I was shocked that there were so many people awaiting in two queues. The queues stretched to the door at lunch hour ! What makes me so surprised is that Macdonald is the kind of fast food which only those who are rich or at least handsomely paid can afford, and as the financial crisis sweeps the globe, the fast food industry should not escape from it either. So who buys fast food like KFC, MACDONALD in your country?

mostly students. because McDonald allows us to stay there for long hours and not chase us away. For SOME outlets. But mostly it's where students get-together to study or chill. It's the cheapest ATAS alternative.

yeah yeah, you said it. My colleague and I used to sit there all afternoon reading books while drinking hot chocolate because the air conditioner didn't work last winter.

It's more expensive, several times than the price in US. maybe for Europeans, buying fast food like KFC, MC are just like paying the cheapest, convenient food. while in China, one meal for one person equals an ordinary person's whole wage for one day or half-day payment. thanks. Lucky you.
