McDonald’s Embraces The 65 Inch HDTV Syndrome

Consider this; the undercurrents of Foodservice Solutions® 65 Inch HDTV Syndrome have now reached the manufacture of La-Z-Boy, Uber Eats, and the world’s most successful global chain restaurant McDonald’s.  Steven Johnson, Grocerant Guru® at Tacoma, WA based Foodservice Solutions® identified, quantified, and qualified The 65 Inch HDTV Syndrome back in the day.
Not only is McDonald’s embracing The 65 Inch HDTV Syndrome they have partnered with two other companies to give consumers what they want.  Simply put McDonald’s meals delivered to their home so they can enjoy the meal in from of their 65 Inch HDTV on their couch.  While no HDTV as given the La-Z-Boy is outfitted with built-in coolers, light-up cup holders, phone chargers, adjustable seats and a McDonald’s-Uber Eats blanket that says “Going out is overrated.” So, how are expanding your brand?
Elizabeth Campbell, senior director of brand and menu strategy for McDonald’s stated “The McDelivery Couch sweepstakes celebrates our shared love of staying in, as well as our mission to bring people together over food and fun experiences,”
McDonald’s is giving away the couch in a sweepstakes that runs through April 8. Customers enter by tweeting about menu items they like to have delivered and can enter as often as once a day. They began working with Uber Eats on delivery in 2017 and now has the service in about 9,000 of its 14,000 U.S. locations.
