McDonald’s was Stop 31 on our 52 week tour of La Grange restaurants and food establishments.

This week, John Price, Phil Fulton, Sarah Parkes, Teddy Lynch, Karen Lynch, Jim Walls, Steve Palmer (not pictured) and newcomer James Discipio (not pictured) all joined us for Happy Meals at the Golden Arches.

Our Mickey D’s experience was what we expected, as the McDonald’s model is based on consistency in food and atmosphere (for budding entrepreneurs read The E-Myth Revisited, which discusses that model).

When I told my wife of this week’s stop, she insisted that I try the quarter-pounder with cheese. I now realize that I should’ve stuck to the Big Mac.

There was a lot of Bulls and Blackhawks discussion. I am interested in hearing what everyone thinks about the new United Center scoreboard.

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving!

Next week, we are heading to Milkstop Cafe on Wednesday, December 4th at noon. We are coming west, Kathy Dierkes and Joe Kroc. Your attendance is mandatory. Hope to see you there!
