McDonald’s is NOTORIOUS for having its ice cream machines break down . . . it happens so much that their official Twitter account even makes jokes about it now.
But the people who run McDonald’s franchises don’t see it as a joke . . . they’re losing money when people can’t buy ice cream from the broken machines. And they’ve decided to take matters into their own hands.
So, a bunch of independent franchise owners have formed a team to find new machines that don’t break as often. And once they find a more reliable machine, they’ll present it to McDonald’s corporate to have it approved. (Business Insider)
