#YourNewMcDonalds AD

Growing up, a Happy Meal used to be our Saturday evening treat after badminton/gymnastics/whatever activity we were doing at the time. McDonalds are a huge company, and I've eaten their burgers in countries worldwide - from shopping centres in France on a school trip, to high streets in Poland with Sam. They're iconic, and to work with them is a bit of a blogging highlight for me.

So - we headed to the Page Moss McDonalds in Huyton, Liverpool, to meet the franchisee who owns that particular store and get the low down on what it's like to be a franchisee. He currently owns 4 stores (crazy) and is opening another one soon. We learnt a bit about the history of McDonalds, and about how things have changed over recent years - everything is faster, more customer-friendly, more intuitive and easy and fun.

We were each presented with a sparkly box containing our very own apron, cap and name tag - and a hair net, of course. We washed our hands and our kitchen tour began - a bit of explaining at each station, a demo and then it was over to us. Honestly I've never been so stressed; everything is so precise, and they work so damn hard in that kitchen to ensure everything runs smoothly. Honestly it's like a whirlwind!

I ended up with my burger just how I like it - a double cheeseburger with no cheese or pickles - alongside some chips and their new raspberry ripple ice drink. Deliciiiiious.

It was such an exciting experience to see what goes on behind the scenes in my favourite fast food restaurant and honestly, I don't ever wanna hear people look down on those who work in that industry because it's definitely not a job I could do!
