This was first reported by Bloomberg as McDonald’s required approval from franchise owners. Palmaccio and other franchise owners gave the new promotion their consent this week, it was reported.

McDonald’s franchise owner John Palmaccio said as per Bloomberg, “Great value and affordability have always been a hallmark of McDonald’s brand, and all three legs of the stool are coming together to deliver that at a time when our customers really need it.”

This comes as McDonald’s executives reported slower growth in foot traffic at its restaurants after the fast-food chain hiked prices. Other US chains have boosted menu item prices citing rising labor costs and costs of food as the key factors.

McDonald’s CEO Chris Kempczinski earlier said his company has to be “laser-focused” on keeping prices affordable to convince customers to return. He said, “Consumers continue to be even more discriminating with every dollar that they spend as they face elevated prices in their day-to-day spending, which is putting pressure on the industry. It’s imperative that we continue to keep affordability at the forefront for our customers.”
