How does McDonald's work?

Do you know how does McDonald's work? How can it be so successful? I think these are very hard questions to answer. I really don't know the right answer. I have just posted a essay at my blog to discussion the question. Maybe I will succeed in my own business when I finally find the answer. Meanwhile I will post my opinion about this question in my blog. I hope anyone who knows the answer please tell me. Because I want to start my own business at the future. I must find out the answer.

It's the epitome of fastfood - you need something, it's on the shelf and it's fresh. However, that's not really how it is in the Philippines. Since the managers here are cutting back on unnecessary spending, they sometimes prepare the burger only when you order it (and not grab it from the shelf like in the US or in the UK) - I don't mind waiting for a few minutes for it though. Since I know they're not wasting anything, whereas in 1st world countries, they throw away burgers when they've been on the shelf for too long. Thanks for the response on my discussion!

You are welcome! I like to discuss something that I'm interested in. Take McDonald's for example, I know that burgers would be thrown away when they've been on the shelf for ten minutes. I think that's a waste of food. But why? I believe that is service, wonderful service for customers.
