MCDONALD’S TO CLOSE 700 STORES Fast food giant admits it quietly closed 350 stores in Q1

McDonald’s closed 350 stores in the first three months of 2015 and is planning to close an additional 350 by the end of the year.

The struggling fast food giant recently announced it was closing 350 poorly performing stores this year, but on Wednesday McDonald’s admitted it had closed a previously unannounced 350 stores in the U.S., Japan and China.

“Earlier on Wednesday, McDonald’s reported an 11% decrease in revenue and a 30% drop in profit for the first three months of year, a continuation of its troubles in the last two years as it has struggled to compete with new U.S. competitors, a tough economy in Europe and a food safety scare in Asia,” Fortune reported.

McDonald’s started falling into a steep decline after customers began seeking healthier alternatives, a decline which may prove terminal for the world’s largest fast food chain.
It was definitely a sign of the times when Hillary Clinton stopped to eat at Chipotle while campaigning in Iowa earlier this month, two decades after her husband famously stopped at a McDonald’s while jogging.

“The world is starting to ask what they’re truly eating in their food — and the new conglomerate of natural grocers and restaurants are trailblazing the way into an entirely new economic environment,” Anthony Gucciardi wrote. “In other words: people are simply tired of shoveling garbage into their bodies, and they’re not going to put up with it anymore.”

And price conscious consumers aren’t just limited to McDonald’s nowadays: natural food outlets such as Whole Foods are offering organic foods at the same price as a Big Mac with fries.

“McDonald’s is a huge company, a huge supply chain spread everywhere, and it’s kind of getting nibbled at the margins by all these upscale burger chains, organic places [and] locally sourced food,” Yahoo finance columnist Rick Newman wrote.

In the wake of disappointing earnings, McDonald’s has announced it will be closing 900 locations worldwide this year. The company posted a $400 million profit loss for the first three months of this year. McDonald’s has been struggling to keep its menu popular as food trends have changed to ORGANIC REAL FOOD, leading the chain with falling sales and dwindling customers.

A new #America is forming as the people wake up and act up by choosing right systems, choosing wisely what they put in their mouths as food and what corporate entity their dollars support. “Most people simply don’t think of McDonald’s as a healthy place to eat, despite its efforts to offer more menu choices,” Civil Eats co-founder Naomi Starkman writes. In a world where farm-to-table increasingly dominates eating ethos, McDonald’s is still essentially serving up “factory farm-to-table,” she says.

The animal holocaust in cruel factory farms filled with dyes, chemicals, & #GMO pesticide toxins have skyrocketed #cancer rates worldwide. It is unsafe and not food as well established and known. Common sense.
As dead corpse flesh for food and protein has been well marketed even effecting Buddhists & Asian cultures- science, nutrition, and age old wisdom has opened up why vital energy from vegetarian earth foods are better for body & mind. Meat sits in the gut for up to a year. Its acidic like dairy, leading to constant stress inflammation (diabetes, GI diseases, & heart disease, strokes) over time. The body’s like a car and it has to really detox to heal- meaning limiting almost fasting and not taking in crap. Majority have no idea. No school of thought to teach publicly yet.

Plants contain enough vital energy from a tiny seed to bloom huge trees, plants, fruits, nuts, and vegetables. The grains bloom harvest before death- supplying free food. Red meat & dead chicken meat hold animalistic fear & passions which effect the mind subtlety and can not grow more energy as a sun #light made plant. It depends how clean one wants to be. Everything effects the mind & body.
