McDonald's shuts down ALL U.S. offices ahead of massive layoffs, and the menu might not be safe either
It's a sad day in America, my friends. McDonald's has shut all of its offices based in the United States in anticipation of layoffs.
International employees were told via email to work from home until this Wednesday so layoff notices can be delivered virtually. They also asked all employees to cancel all in-person meetings with vendors at its headquarters.
\u201cMcDonald's Corp\u00a0is temporarily closing its U.S. offices this week as it prepares to inform corporate employees about its layoffs as part of a broader company restructuring, the Wall Street Journal\u00a0reported\u00a0on Sunday\n#McDonalds \nhttps://t.co/5Ojafaj6gg\u201d— The Telegraph (@The Telegraph) 1680487949
It's unclear how many employees will be laid off. Chief Executive Chris Kempczinski previously said the move would save money, but didn't elaborate on how much they hope to save. So we can probably chalk it up to Sleepy Joe's economy.
Unfortunately, there's more bad news. The McDonald's menu might change, too. An email from January that warned of the coming layoffs also suggested menus could be simplified with less duplication. AKA variety.
The CEO wrote, "We had across the globe 70 different, distinct versions of what a crispy chicken sandwich would look like. I don't need 70 different permutations of a chicken sandwich." The sass is palpable.
I've always thought Mickey D's variety across the globe was one of the most, if not the only, interesting things about the chain. YouTube is full of videos of people trying foreign McDonald's menus. Like the McArabia Chicken in the United Arab Emirates, which is a sandwich of grilled chicken and garlic sauce between Arabic bread. Or in Japan, the Bai Teriyaki Chicken Fillet-O or the McSpicy Shanghai Burger. Spain has a McCrispy Honey Mustard, and Britain has a Mayo Chicken. Which sounds pretty boring to me. But I'll let the Brits be with their mayonnaise.

I'm no business man, but I would think cutting the global variety of foods would just make fans unhappy. But perhaps so many people eat at McDonald's anyway, they can afford to make some menu cuts. As long as they don't take the McFlurries. Those concoctions of corn syrup and heavy cream take me straight back to childhood.
