The scope of McDonalds is hard to fathom. It is the most successful fast food franchise in the world, present in more countries than any other fast food company. The company has learnt to adapt to every market it enters, and is currently the second most recognized company in the world, trailing only Coca-Cola. Nothing speaks more to the power of McDonalds than the economy it has developed encompassing its customers, suppliers, employees, and real estate ventures. If McDonalds were a country, its economy would place it 68th in the world, just ahead of Sri Lanka.
