***** McDonald’s *****

Regular readers know or should know– that before Jeff Eats became one of South Florida’s most prolific food experts, I was a general partner in a group that owned/operated 29 Hardee’s… and always keep a close eye on the fast-food franchise business.

Now—don’t say that Jeff Eats never gave you nothing, but…

Last week- McDonald’s announced that it was going to “restore” its McRib pork-sandwich to its menu. From what I heard, the McRib which was nixed in 1994- did so well in “holiday” testings in 2010 & 2011, that McDonald’s decided to go for the gold and bring the sandwich back for a full-boat run.

Now for the kicker–well placed sources told me- that this week’s arrival of the McRib in South Florida is two weeks earlier than the rest of the country.

Will wonders never cease—the sandwich is back and South Florida gets it back first!

To all McRib maniacs in South Florida, rejoice!

Enjoy the two week head start…

Happy Holidays!!!!!

    Jeff, why has Hardees not opened in South Florida. Hardees and White Castle would both thrive here.

    Jeff, this news is bigger than an announcement that they found a cure for cancer.
    Love your site and sense of humor.

    McDonald’s does a good job when you factor in the low price. They are good when you are in a hurry and hungry. They have always been friendly and they are willing to correct any mistakes they make. By Gregg L. Friedman MD, Psychiatrist, Hallandale Beach, FL
