    They need to add more protein.

    They need to go vegan. Tired of seeing all you diabetic mother****ers reaching for that last 24-pack of carbonated-water drenched sugar. Mayne!

    They are on the way out, IMO - their run is over.

    I thought they were testing Five Guys-style burgers?

    Not on the way out, but certainly on the decline. Today's society is much more health conscious. They know what eating that stuff does to your body, and that it simply isn't good for you. They will continue to decline, but society will always have people who dgaf.

    Fast food joints use to make good burgers. Now they add fillers and chemicals and the burger got smaller.

    As long as they have the value menu, they will continue to survive.
    I know I've had times where I've had to eat something on/near campus and resorted to McDonalds because its so cheap.

    Indeed. You have to know your local cheap burger purveyors these days.

    I literally don't know anyone within 10 years of my age that would ever eat at a McDonald's

    My prior understanding is the increasing reliance on the value menu is seriously eating into their profits. They need to make people pay more or the slide will continue.

    Just lean on your suppliers to cut costs, implement online ordering and/or deliveries and create a charge card.

    I, too, only purchase from their expensive menu and sit in the vip section.

    I never order a combo from McDonalds, in fact all I ever get is 2 mcdoubles for 2.60. I only eat there when I'm hungry and in a hurry.

    Most people I know only get that or a hot & spicy for a dollar. The does not seem to be a terribly profitable way to do business.
