hit it on the head.
Prior to their having in-store seating areas, Mickie D's was primarily a "teen thing". Their sales soared as the "Baby Boomers" became mobile teens - and, why not: I used to get two burgers, fries, and a "shake" for 61 cents!
By the time the Boomers got around to breeding (in my and Mrs. Metro I's case 1968 and 1970
) they came up with various 'family-orinted' strategies: in-store seating and kiddie commercials featuring Ronald McDonald that ran
on kid-oriented TV. As a result, when my kids reached 5 and 3, there was literally
HELL TO PAY
if we wanted to stop at any other fast food!
As a result, when Mrs. Metro IV and I are on the road we use McDonald's only for their dependably clean restrooms!
