McDonald's Corp. announced that global comparable sales increased 0.7 percent in July. McDonald's U.S. sales increased 1.6 percent during July, reflecting the appeal of McDonald's market-leading breakfast, classic core favorites and everyday value offerings, according to the company. The 21st edition of Monopoly at McDonald's and the popularity of the featured products including Premium McWraps, the Big Mac and Chicken McNuggets also contributed to the month's performance.
"McDonald's Plan to Win and our three global growth priorities to optimize the menu, modernize the customer experience and broaden accessibility to Brand McDonald's continue to serve as our strategic roadmap - keeping us focused on delivering great-tasting, affordable meals in modern restaurants," said President and Chief Executive Officer Don Thompson. "In July, we delivered modest global comparable sales growth, relatively in-line with our expectations. Looking ahead, we remain focused on building market share and strengthening our position as our customers' favorite place and way to eat and drink."
