In addition to maintaining jobs, McDonalds has expanded the job market through the construction of additional stores like the recentlyopened Hardin Valley restaurant.

Cochran and Faris agreed that the Hardin Valley site, Faris 18th store, is a strong e bags online xample of McDonalds new direction as a brand.

Its an expensive property to keep up with, but we feel its the right decision to create a friendly environment, Faris said. People come in and they feel like they are in a living room.

Were anxious to do a few of them and see what we can do, Cochran said. Oak Ridge will be the first one like that, and there are a few more on the drawing board.

In addition to store expansions, McDonalds also recently expanded its menu, which Faris said was an integral part of the brands growth during the past year and a half.

Weve launched some great products while maintaining that extra value, Faris said. The real fruit smoothies, frappes, espresso drinks, hot mochas and lattes have been really popular. They are great drinks that feel like an indulgence, but people can still save money. bags online
