DID THE McDONALD’S ‘GRIMACE SHAKE’ SAVE THE ECONOMY?
In a recent announcement, McDonald’s revealed that its business saw a remarkable 12 percent surge between April and June. The primary driving force behind this significant boost, according to the fast-food giant, was the overwhelming success of the ‘Grimace’ shake — a purple-hued concoction that rapidly gained viral popularity.
With millions of these shakes sold, McDonald’s not only reaped massive profits but also caught the attention of economists who speculate that its success may have played a pivotal role in averting a potential recession in the United States.
