OK, I just came across this statement, ‘supposedly’ from a former CFO of McDonalds. Having read part of the story of the McDonalds growth to the largest hamburger chain in the world have seen similar quotes before. However, this is just a great quote. If ever you wondered whether real estate was a good long term investment, these guys clearly think so.

According to the company’s former CFO: “We are in the real estate business. The only reason we sell hamburgers is because they are the greatest producer of revenue from which our tenants can pay us rent.”

If you are a McDonalds Franchisee and are reading this, I’m Ray Croc and his team sends you their regards. Come to think of it, isn’t the business model the same for most/all restaurent franchises? Gotta think that I like the Franchisor side of that equation.

Food for thought.
