Fast food giant McDonald’s has announced a record daily profit for its Sydney CBD outlets, as more than 1300 police officers descended on the city.
“Today we saw revenue up more than 5000% for outlets within the city ring,” says McDonald’s Australia CEO Tim Liddle.
“Demand was up across the entire menu, but Big Mac and apple pie sales particularly skyrocketed.”
There was a heavy police presence at McDonald’s outlets throughout the CBD, as officers crowded to prevent a repeat of last Saturday’s anti-lockdown protests.
By 3pm McDonald’s on Pitt Street was forced to close after running out of stock.
“We’re expecting strong sales over the coming days as the police operation in continues.” says Tim Liddle.
NSW Police was not willing to comment for this story.
More to come.
