For Years I have been going the Mcdonalds near my home almost 5 times a week in the morning to grab my morning large coffee and I would order the number 4 Breakfast combo which was the Breakfast Burritos.
One morning I did not use my usual Mcdonalds by my house I deceided to use the one closer to my workplace about 13 kilometres away. I was shocked. My order was $1.20 CHEAPER at the McDonalds by my workplace. The SAME order. I asked why and I sent a complaint with my scanned receipts proving the price difference to McDonalds.
The manager of my McDonalds on 44 Bristol Rd East replied to me via email her exact words:" Franchise locations and Corporate locations all have different prices across Ontario. Owner Operators of a Franchise location have the right to price items as they see fit and reasonable. I'm sorry you find this location to be "over-priced". [continued below]....
The point is that my total at my workplace Mcdonald's location for my breadkfast was $5.50 and the price at the Bristol Road location was $6.70 a difference of $1.20. We are not talking a small percentage difference here. This is a 20% increase in price for the SAME THING!! I have figured out that over a year I have OVERPAID to a total of over $400 for just using One McDonalds location over another one. That is a RIPOFF and unacceptable.
I am paying for a product that is FRANCHISED so why should I have to pay more just because one franchise owner deceides he wants more profit. So be aware people of this scam and avoid giving any business to Franchises that allow this practice.
