Introduction

A November 2014 press releases revealed an erosion of McDonald's' results across most of its divisions, a stark contrast with one of its former companies, Chipotle. Chipotle has outperformed not only McDonald's in recent years, but also the economy. This case study analyzes the two company's financial performances and business practices, as well as the fast casual restaurant sector.

* Looks at the differing business practices of McDonald's and Chipotle and how they impact their profit margins.
* Provides insight into the difference between the quick service and fast casual restaurant sectors.

Highlights
