McDonald in the Global Market As I visited each site of each country, the similarities in products that McDonald offerings around the world are the burger sandwiches, dessert, lunch set menu, happy meal for kids, and drinks. The difference in the products offerings also different kind sandwich flavors, how many different type of cold, hot drinks, and dessert depend on the countries' weather, website color layout, and service they offering. One thing I find interesting is McDonald's Big Mac is on every menu of all 10 countries that I did research on. Coffee drinks also common on their menu with different kind of taste. Only 3 or 4 countries out of 10 have the same kind of coffee drinks offer on menu. The chicken nuggets menu found almost in every menu too . Coke or coca cola drink is really popular all over the world. I saw it in every menu, and it is the first one on the list of drinks and shown on the picture of the set menu and/or lunch menu. The differences in product offerings are really unlikely compare to each other. In the South Korea menu, I saw one sandwich named bulgogi burger. This one sandwich is one of a kind for South Korean. On the Thai menu, I notice a lot of cold drinks and cold dessert since Thailand is hot for all year long. Whereas the two countries located in middle east and Africa, Egypt and Israel, I notice there are more wrap and salad menu than any other countries. One last thing that caught my attention is the website layout. For Japan's website layout is really special than others. For other countries' website color layout, they use colors that pop up to our eyes such as red with yellow, green with yellow. As for the background they use neither black or white. However for Japan's website color, they use light brown with gray color as the background. This really how Japanese culture shown to others. From the perspective of global product or service strategies,

    Since most McDonalds have the same menu, it provides an easy economy of scale. McDonalds has more than 32,000 restaurants around the world (Economies of scale). When McDonalds places an order, they don’t go and buy individual items, they receive them from a local wholesaler just like any other independent restaurant (Economies of scale). “McDonald’s is the world’s largest buyer of eggs; therefore they are able to negotiate the very best unit cost per egg during their enormous volume purchase and passing those savings onto their franchise owners” (Economies of scale). Since McDonalds receives the best price, they are able to place a egg sandwich together and sell it to their customers for a competitive price (Economies of scale). Bulk buying for McDonald’s helps in the long run because they save money for purchasing merchandise at lower unit prices instead of purchasing from an independent business which would be higher (Economies of scale).…

    2. A. Such as McDonald’s and General Mills should change the colors of its logo or packaging depending on the country, because of their own cultures. For example, the yellow signifies happiness in the U.S., the color symbolizes sadness in Greece and jealousy in France. Likewise, when a company decides to do a business globally, they have to segment the market geographically and cater to the different target market’s needs and wants, not from the ones of the home country. The France’s McDonald website is different from America’s.…
