Having never seen a McDonald's outside of USA and parts of Europe, I recently visited Australia and found the McDonald's there very interesting. "McCafe", an elite hamburger cafe! I even thought about eating there in the airport (but didn't)!
McDonald's is master at continuing to rebrand and reinvent themselves.
It is great to hear about more big names using Drupal, but this particular site design isn't so stunning. It's a typical brochure, heavy on graphics and low on text, interactivity or accessible navigation.
They could have done this much without Drupal, and far more than this with Drupal. ;)
The design of this web site, different from other sites created by Drupal. Good work.
Actually, they have those McCafes in Europe as well. My impression is, that they're mainly mushrooming around the motorways.
That McDonalds site is simply awful.
Had a little poke around the website source code. It's a shame they haven't used any CSS/JS aggregation and minification.
Also, putting scripts below body content is a good idea too.
Otherwise, very flashy (sorry...) site.
I agree with Arancaytar, why they use Drupal? It's just a simple website with beautiful design. They didn't use half of Drupal features ...
Quick (No. 1 in fast food in Belgium and Luxembourg and No. 2 in France) also switched to Drupal: http://group.quick.be
