We have written about the ‘street McDonalds’ stands before and this new picture is also interesting.
Not sure how the corporates from McDonald’s feel about this. Probably not too good. Although, they should realize that they are not likely to be losing any customers to these street-vendors… in fact, they just may be getting free publicity (including on this blog) in the bargain.
But if they were smart, they may also like to get some good ideas from these vendors. I still remember my good ol’ bun-kabab (a.k.a., bund-kabab) – a burger look-alike, but with spicy shaami kebab inside. Frankly, I wil take a bun-kebab any day over a McDonald’s burger. What I woudl prefer even more is a bun-samoosa… or, if I were in a mood to splurge, a bun-samoosa-kebab dripping with spicy goodness.
And that is the idea that the McDonald’s guys in Pakistan should really be taking from these street vendors. Coming soon to a McDonald’s near you, the All New McBunSamoosa.
It could be a big winner!
