business news in context, analysis with attitude

The Chicago Tribune reports that McDonald's is testing family-sized meal boxes - dubbed "Blitz Boxes" - in its Kansas City, Missouri, stores.

According to the story, "The box, introduced in connection with the start of the NFL football season, costs $14.99 and includes two Quarter Pounders with Cheese, two medium French fries and a 20-piece Chicken McNuggets. The box features the Kansas City Chiefs logo."

McDonald's reportedly offers similar programs - without the NFL connection, of course - in countries that include Australia and the Czech Republic. If the Kansas City test goes well, the program could expand to other US markets.

Good idea. And that's all i'm going to say here about McDonald's. (See 'Your Views" for why.)
