Just when you think that it's all gloom-and-doom for every business out there, guess who's doing just fine.
According to a QSR Magazine
and backed up by some very convincing numbers, Ronald McDonald is making out like the Hamburglar these days, posting 52 consecutive months of sales increases, and reveling in all-time high stock prices of $67 per share.
"America's 'Recession-Proof' Chain" they're calling it.
The reason, the article points out, is combination of things, but mostly because of sound management decisions, which is saying something when every day brings news of the consequences from the opposite.
So...there you go. Get a job at McDonald's -- the one place you probably won't get laid off.
