Starting today, McDonald’s outlets across Australia will be the first across the globe to introduce some subtle improvements to the burgers that have made Maccas the dominant chain it is today. The classics, which include the Big Mac, Quarter Pounder and Cheeseburger, are said to have undergone a number of careful improvements to the way each is prepared and served, which ideally will result in a higher standard of quality.
“We’ve reviewed all of the steps and elements that go into serving our classic burgers to ensure they are the very best they can be – and here in Australia, we’ll be the first country in the world to serve these hotter, juicier and tastier burgers at every one of our restaurants”, said haron Paz, Vice President of Operations at McDonald’s Australia. “We’ve undertaken extensive research, testing and trials as we’ve developed our new restaurant processes and are confident our customers will agree our burgers taste better than ever before”.
Some of the changes include how the 100% beef patties are cooked, adding onions to the grill for more flavour, using softer and freshly toasted buns, and – most importantly – more special sauce on the Big Mac.
Of course, whether or not the difference is actually noticeable remains to be seen. I guess we’ll all find out as the “improved” range rolls out today.
