USA, September 5, 2012 (Forbes): McDonald's plans to open
vegetarian outlets in two holy cities in India. Why is
the company that perfected burger flipping delving into
the likes of McVeggie, McAloo Tikki and McSpicy Paneer,
after more than 16 years in India? Here's one possibility
-- global comparable sales were flat in July. The U.S.
was down 0.1%, Europe was down 0.6%, and Asia/Pacific,
Middle East and Africa were down 1.5%.

In the release announcing July's disappointing figures,
chief Don Thompson said he had three global priorities:
optimize the menu, modernize the experience, and broaden
accessibility to the brand. McDonald's has just 271
stores in India, according to the Financial Times. That
leaves plenty of room to grow.

Good question. Eliminationists act like they caused McDonald's to use more
animal friendly methods of farming. If that were actually true why wouldn't
McDonald's try to market their products which provide lives of positive value
for livestock instead of products which don't do anything at all to benefit any
livestock, but only result in the deaths of wildlife?
