Why So Cheap?

The suspicious McDonalds customer is as much a staple of this restaurant as its Golden Arches and its Big Mac. It seems that no one understands how they can keep their prices so low. That applies as much to their regular customers (who operate with a “meh, it’s good food” attitude) as it does to the people who wouldn’t touch this restaurant with a barge pool.

McDonalds Value Menu

The truth is, there is nothing suspicious here. It’s supply and demand. McDonalds can sell food cheaply because they are buying in bulk, undercutting the suppliers and, let’s be honest, buying cheap food. That doesn’t mean their burgers are made of cow’s eyeballs and anuses. It just means that they’re not made from the best cuts and they’re processed in a way that allows McDonalds to produce them cheaply.

So, yes, it’s not great food. It’s not super-healthy. But the same could be said for all fast food.

It’s also worth remembering that McDonalds are not the only ones with a dollar value menu. There are many chains that have them, including ones who aren’t viewed with as much suspicion. For instance, the Del Taco menu contains many more dollar items than the McDonalds menu does. And they’re not the only ones.

So, it’s time to stop the hate and start appreciating the McDonalds dollar menu for what it is: a cheap way to eat fast food!
