McDonald’s will hold a virtual investor event on Monday. Investors are going to be observing closely to see the way McDonald’s is going to attempt to heighten sales in 2020, counting in the chance of additional celeb endorsements, Cowen analyst Andrew Charles stated recently.
He believes that next year and those following will see USA sales drivers concentrate on creating McDonald’s more youth-oriented through store remodels that are almost done, new menu/ marketing opportunities and the use of last year’s technology acquisitions.
All in all, worldwide sales decreased by 2.2 percent, still better when compared with Q2.
Even after certain recovery, the biggest global fast-food chain is still under pressure in major marketplaces overseas, counting in France, Germany and the UK, owing to renewed lockdown constraints caused by Covid-19 spikes.
Since before the tighter requirements, McDonald’s foreign sales recovery was slow when pitted against the States, where its great amount of drive-through lanes gave it a favorable point over rivals for folks wanting restaurant food without the risk of outside dining.
Almost 95 percent of McDonald’s 14K USA places for dining own a drive-thru.
McDonald’s overall sales took a tumble of circa 2 percent to $5.42B in the 3-month period ended September 30, primarily trying to recover from the more than 30 percent decline recorded in Q2.
Analysts had predicted revenue of $5.40B on average, IBES data from Refinitiv shows.
USA customer traffic stayed low from 2019, the firm stated.
Net revenue increased by 10 percent to $1.76B, supported by benefits from a profit of part of McDonald’s stake in its affiliate from Japan.
With the exception of those benefits, the firm got $2.22 for every share, surpassing a forecast of $1.90.
