why is egg at mcdonalds worth $2?
>>19925857this is the store literally right next door to the mcdonalds. so the upcharge is almost 24 times the real amount
>>19925857It's 2 dollars worth of preservatives, stabilizing ingredients and you have to pay for the little tray to keep it warm. I'm pretty sure the "egg" is made in a factory and re-hydrated at the location. I'd say on average mcdicks up charges 15x on ingredients and the only reason it was ever cheap (3+years ago) was the meat was the same quality as dog food.
>>19925857Egg is more labor-intensive to cook than the other ingredients.
>>19925860>food is more expensive when you buy it from restaurantshuh?
>>19925880This. The chefs at McDonald's spend years perfecting their egg cooking and rice washing before they're even allowed to think about making a Big Mac.

Because they have to pay someone to cook the food for you. Labor costs are usually far more than food costs at most restaurants. Pic related is the average sales & costs for a typical McDonald's franchise. Also other food items (like the burgers/sandwiches) will have lower profit margins than the eggs, while the fries & fountain drinks probably have similar or better margins. https://sharpsheets.io/blog/mcdonalds-franchise-sales-costs-profits/

>>19925971i understand you need to pay your workersbut egg is TWO DOLLARS MOREan extra patty at mcdonalds is less than a dollar and it takes way longer to grow that cow and put the labor into thatit just makes no sense
>>19926084>food is cheaper when you cook it yourselfwhat?
>>19925857why do we have this retarded thread twice a day? Food costs more at a restaurant than at a supermarket because you're paying their employees, transport costs, rent, ad revenue, CEO bonuses. You aren't paying for the food. You're paying the price it takes to keep the business profitable.
>>19926084All lot of it comes down to what the customers are willing to pay, and customer's preferences do not have to match what the raw material and labor costs are. Many customers are willing to pay a lot for a cooked egg, and not as much for a cooked beef patty, and a lot less for raw eggs. So fast food places take advantage. Any fast food places that tried to charge the same profit margin on every item would end up with less total sales and be outcompeted by places that recognize that aspect of consumer behavior.
Someone else cooks it for you.They use equipment that costs more than your trailer to do it.Don't like it fuck off.

>>19926159>retardI rarely eat out at restaurants (cooking almost every meal myself), and live comfortably. You are the one with the mcdumpsters app on your phone crying to your internet HUGBOX for validation about $2 eggs on your goyslop.
>>19926185>I rarely eat out at restaurantsso you know nothing about this topic and are mad at people discussing it, got it retard
>>19925868bro they just throw a regular egg into a little circle thing and steam it.
>>19926232thats what im saying, maybe an extra 10 seconds of work is worth $1.90 thats $6840 dollars an hour wow mcdonalds employees are getting scammed
>>19925860>He thinks it's real egg
>>19925932Jesus christ 1240 calories in single burger
>>19926477>Jesus christ 1240 calories in single burgerAre you talking about the item in the COMBO menu which includes a large drink and large fries, and is not in fact just a single burger by itself?
>>19926510That's right! Don't mind me I am retarded
>>19925880Yeah it’s this. I fucking hate making the eggs, at least I get my revenge by giving dipshit customers barely-melted bacon that’s akin to frozen shoe leather in both texture and tastet. wagie
>>19925860>>19925857because eggs are $7/dozen at the store and your 2nd pic is fake
>>19927557i remember when they were for a few months because of BIDEN
>>19925896You joke but Dunkin’ Donuts is exactly like that. Only the most senior employees can make sandwiches or normal food. Everyone else is kpcoffee and donuts.
>>19927723no, they went up in price because factory farm eggs got made illegalthey have to be free range nowegg farmers had 5 year's warning to change and didnt do shit thinking the change wouldnt go through

>>19925868why are you "pretty sure" about random shit you make up?
>>19925857Yeah? want to know the raw cost for the restaurant?Of course it varies by location as distance from distribution center plays a role in price, but heres my store.Wrapper- .0099Muffin- .1654Cheese- .0715Butter- Too lazy to factor the math but near nothingSausage- .2077Canadian Bacon- .1908Of course, though, all price recommendations are set by Deloitte and approved by franchisee.
