McDonald’s Continues to Demonstrate Strength and Resiliency
July 26, 2022
Q2 2022 Results
Strong performance demonstrates McDonald’s broad-based business momentum.
Growth Powered by M, C & Ds
We turned big cultural moments – including Queen Elizabeth’s Platinum Jubilee – into creative pedestals for the Golden Arches, and we launched our latest Famous Order in Australia with The Kid LAROI. The world’s top marketers agree, as McDonald’s was repeatedly recognized this quarter for advertising that captures hearts and minds.
Commitment to Our Core
We continue to feature strong core menu campaigns in many of our Markets around the world, including the Big Mac Celebration featuring a Double Big Mac in Germany.
Our customers love MyMcDonald’s Rewards, and the loyalty program continues to drive customer frequency and sales. Digital sales in our top six Markets exceeded $6 billion for the quarter, representing nearly one-third of total Systemwide sales.
The McDonald’s System continues to demonstrate strength and resiliency. Our second quarter performance reflects outstanding execution against our Accelerating the Arches strategy. By focusing on our customers and crew, enabled by a rapidly growing digital capability, we delivered global comparable sales growth of nearly 10%. Nonetheless, the operating environment across the competitive landscape remains challenging. While we are planning for a wide range of scenarios, I am confident that our plans and people position McDonald’s to weather this environment better than others."
