FAST FIVE: McDonald's "Running Out Of Burgers" Thanks To Travis Scott Value Meal As "Sandwich Wars" Heat Up
McDonald's “Running Out Of Burgers” Thanks To Travis Scott Value Meal As “Sandwich Wars” Heat Up Tyler Durden Wed, 09/16/2020 – 12:05 Business Insider reported Wednesday that the popularity of McDonald's $6 Travis Scott-branded “Cactus Jack” limited edition value meal has led to restaurants selling more burgers than they can stock, with some even “running out of burgers” as hungry rap fans show up in droves.
Consumers will remember this isn't the first time a fast-food restaurant has seen a major branding effort result in a massive sales success.
“In fact, it's been so lit, some of our restaurants have temporarily sold out of some of the ingredients in the meal,” McDonald's said in a statement.
Due to the popularity of the deal, McDonald's is temporarily controlling the supply of some ingredients, including Quarter Pounder fresh beef, bacon, slivered onions, shredded lettuce, according to sources with knowledge.
Imagine getting slapped with a fine just for showing up at McDonald's.
