McDonald’s considering $5 meal deal to lure back inflation-hit customers

McDonald’s Corp. is asking its U.S. franchisees to consider offering a $5 meal deal in an effort to convince price-conscious customers to return as fast food restaurants see sales dip due to inflation driving more folks to eat at home.

The proposed combo could include a McDouble or a McChicken along with fries and a drink, people familiar told Bloomberg, which first reported the plans. The outlet said this is the second time McDonald’s has floated the budget option to U.S. store owners.
