Speaking at the J.P. Morgan Gaming, Lodging, Restaurant & Leisure Management Access Forum in Las Vegas last week, McDonald's CFO Kevin Ozan said there is a correlation between restaurants' staffing and their same-store sales. "We know there's a direct correlation between the restaurants that are able to staff to guide and results, comp sales, sales results, etc.," Ozan said, according to a transcript of the presentation from financial data site Sentieo. By "staff to guide," Ozan simply means that the restaurants are following staffing guidelines. "So the more that we can make sure that the restaurants are able to staff to the guidelines, that helps sales for sure." The problem, he said, is that staffing to guidelines isn't always feasible. And it's arguable that the pool of potential restaurant employees is even smaller, given the industry's breakneck hiring pace in recent years along with competition for that labor from companies such as Lyft, Uber and delivery providers. Restaurants have added an average of 21,000 jobs a month for the past two years and have added more than 500,000 employees overall during that period. "With record low unemployment, with increasing labor costs, labor is probably our—not probably—is our biggest challenge right now," Ozan said. The problem for the industry is that it's largely full of locations. Restaurants have built locations faster than the rate consumers have increased their dining occasions—forcing a growing number of restaurants to battle for a largely stagnant dining market. When some restaurants don't do their job as well, consumers shift spending toward chains that do. Because poor staffing hurts service, that pushes more consumers to go elsewhere. Restaurants have been raising wages to attract workers. Many restaurant locations advertise for workers, and often those come with hourly wages well above local minimums. We've long wondered whether labor challenges are holding sales back. And we now wonder whether the lack of labor is posing a particular challenge for fast-food restaurants. Perhaps not surprisingly, McDonald's traffic declined 2.2% last year—though the company has blamed speed problems and breakfast competition for that decline. A FAST food delivery service is finally set to open after a seven month delay. One Delivery Barrow, a franchise of the national One Delivery chain, will start delivering from the beginning of April. The firm will deliver KFC, Subway, McDonald's, Pizza Hut, Greggs, Costa and food from independent takeaways as well as beers, wines and spirits. Although the menu and prices for the Barrow franchise are not yet available to view on the website price lists for other One Delivery franchises shows the service includes a fixed delivery cost (£3.85 in Aberdeen) and meals from KFC appear to add between £1 and £2 to each item. Staff at One Delivery Barrow confirmed the venture has a licence to sell alcohol for consumption off the premises through its link to a local venue. 1) £50 cash and free Big Mac Meal delivered to your door by one-delivery.co.uk 2) Breakfast delivered to your home or work place for a week. who's the person that managed to spend $150 on McDonalds?! FOX 17 reports that someone made the order using McDelivery, which is available on the UberEats app. There are 51 participating McDonald's in Grand Rapids and the highest amount order was $148. While $148 is a crap ton for fast food, that's not even the highest amount spent in the state. According to McDonalds, the highest someone in Michigan spent on their delivery is $179.
