$MCD - The problem I see with McDonald's is that there is a lot of competition in the same strip malls and shopping centers. And the competition sells better food at a similar price!
That being said, my local Mickey D's is always busy. I also find myself going there more often because of the "supersized" menu issue the linked-to article claims is a problem. I like salads and I do stop there for a coffee now and then, too.
I do think the company can continue to expand into new markets and neighborhoods, while maintaining existing customers. But it seems as if it will be difficult to expand the visits-per-week from existing customers.
