INTRODUCTION
McDonald's Corporation is the world's largest chain of hamburger fast food restaurants, serving around 68 million customers daily in 119 countries. Headquartered in the United States, the company began in 1940 as a barbecue restaurant operated by the eponymous Richard and Maurice McDonald; in 1948 they reorganized their business as a hamburger stand using production line principles. Businessman Ray Kroc joined the company as a franchise agent in 1955. He subsequently purchased the chain from the McDonald brothers and oversaw its worldwide growth. A McDonald's restaurant is operated by either a franchisee, an affiliate, or the corporation itself. The corporation's revenues come from the rent, royalties and fees paid by the franchisees, as well as sales in company-operated restaurants. McDonald's primarily sells hamburgers, cheeseburgers, chicken, french fries, breakfast items, soft drinks, shakes and desserts. In response to changing consumer tastes, the company has expanded its menu to include salads, wraps, smoothies and fruit.

HISTORY
The business began in 1940, with a restaurant opened by brothers Richard and Maurice McDonald in San Bernardino, California. Their introduction of the "Speedee Service System" in 1948 furthered the principles of the modern fast-food restaurant that the White Castle hamburger chain had already put into practice more than two decades earlier. The original mascot of McDonald's was a man with a chef's hat on top of a hamburger shaped head whose name was "Speedee." Speedee was eventually replaced with Ronald McDonald by 1967 when the company first filed a U.S. trademark on a clown shaped man having puffed out costume legs. McDonald's first filed for a U.S. trademark on the name "McDonald's" on May 4, 1961, with the description "Drive-In Restaurant Services," which continues to be renewed through the end of December 2009. In the same year, on September 13, 1961, the company filed a logo trademark on an overlapping, double arched "M" symbol. The overlapping double arched "M" symbol logo was temporarily disfavored by September 6, 1962, when a trademark was filed for a single arch, shaped over many of the early McDonald's restaurants in the early years. Although the "Golden Arches" appeared in various forms, the present form as a letter "M" did not appear until November 18, 1968, when the company applied for a U.S. trademark.

ORGANISATION OF McDONALDS
McDonald's Corporation is the world's largest chain of hamburger fast food restaurants, serving more than 58 million customers daily. In addition to its signature restaurant chain, McDonalds Corporation held a minority interest in Pret A Manger until 2008, was a major investor in the Chipotle Mexican Grill until 2006, and owned the restaurant chain Boston Market until 2007. A McDonald's restaurant is operated by either a franchisee, an affiliate, or the corporation itself. The corporation's revenues come from the rent, royalties and fees paid by the franchisees, as well as sales in company-operated restaurants. McDonald's revenues grew 27% over the three years ending in 2007 to $22.8 billion, and 9% growth in operating income to $3.9 billion.

McDonald's primarily sells hamburgers, cheeseburgers, chicken products, french fries, breakfast items, soft drinks, shakes, and desserts. In response to obesity trends in Western nations and in the face of criticism over the healthiness of its products, the company has modified its menu to include alternatives considered healthier such as salads, wraps and fruit.

MARKETING MIX: 3 Ps 1. PHYSICAL EVIDENCE. LOGO:-

The McDonalds logo is used all over the world to promote the objectives of the corporation and also to maintain the high reputation of the company. The logo depicts the unique features of the food chain. Shape of McDonalds Logo: The two golden arches were initially designed to resemble the new arched shaped symbols on the side of the newborn restaurant. Later, the designer of the McDonalds logo merged the two arches to outline the famed M now identified globally. Hence, the McDonalds logo possesses a simple golden colored M which reflects the name of the food chain

10

Color of McDonalds Logo: Two prominent shades, golden and red, are used in the McDonalds logo to represent its bold nature. Golden hue is employed to color the two arches, now merged to form M in the McDonalds logo. Nonetheless, the red color is utilized to fill the background of the distinguished McDonalds logo. Boldness, power and strong corporate image are truly reflected by the use of these two confident colors. Font of McDonalds Logo: In spite if the M on McDonalds logo, the insignia also grips the name of the food chain. McDonalds has been imprinted in a thoroughly simple font which defines the bold picture of the firm. The simpler the font of the logo, the more radiant it becomes for the spectator.

MENU:-

McDonalds serve breakfast menu in morning 4AM to 11AM. McDonalds serve Egg McMuffin, Sausage McMuffin with egg, Fillet-o- fish, Sausage McGriddles with egg, Hot cakes, Big Breakfast, Breakfast Deluxe in their breakfast menu.

11

McDonalds serve Lunch And Dinner menu in morning 11AM to night 4AM. McDonalds serve Mc Chicken, Double Cheeseburger, Chicken McNuggets, McWings, Quarter Pounder with Cheese, Big Mac, McSpicy in their lunch and dinner menu. McDonalds sell their menu in cheap prices as compare to other competitor. Along with changes in their process strategies, McDonalds has flirted with menu changes as well. The purpose was to offer customers a variety of options to satisfy peoples desire for variety. However, the new taste menu proved to be ineffective. Some customers would fall in love with an item, but it would only last one week, and they would be frustrated that they couldnt purchase their new beloved favourite sandwich. More recent changes to the menu have proved effective. McDonald realized that many of todays customers seek healthy food options, and the Corporation has offered items accordingly. McDonalds now offers a wider variety of nutritious items and provides information to help its customers as well as employees make informed healthy choices. SIDES:-

Fries

Corn Cup

Apple Slices

PACKAGING:On August 1, 1990, McDonald's and Environmental Defense Fund joined forces in a ground breaking partnership to find ways to reduce McDonald's solid waste.
