McDonald’s To Remove Items From Menu

Brace yourselves fast food lover because McDonald’s is about to remove some items from their menu. The restaurant claims that the items they are removing are some of the least popular, but that doesn’t mean they might not be some of your own personal favorites.

The decision to phase out the eight menu options comes after the chain experienced a drop in sales. The menu appears to be too large and some items are simply just not selling. A smaller menu could mean better sales.

So what will be missing from the menu?

According to USA Today, McDonald’s will be cutting down to just one Quarter Pounder with Cheese, one Premium Chicken sandwich, and one type of Snack Wrap. The Value Menu will also be reduced from 16 different meal options to just 11.

According to  McDonald’s spokeswoman Lisa McComb, the restaurant hopes that by reducing the number of items on the menu, the items left will become more appealing to customers and sales will increase.

Our intent is to have a cleaner menu board that is easier for customers to absorb.


These menu changes will happen slowly, but the new menu is already being tested in some restaurants in Delaware, Little Rock, Waco, Bakersfield, Macon and Knoxville.

A smaller menu may not be the only changes the restaurant makes. The chain is also considering making their food more healthy and removing the preservatives from certain menu items and eventually all of them.

Mike Andres, president of McDonald’s USA recently asked the question, “Why do we need to have preservatives in our food?”

If the restaurant decides that they don’t need to add preservatives, the menu could change completely.

Do you think McDonald’s is doing the right thing by slimming down their menu?

What is McDonald’s menu item can you just not live without?
