With obesity being a major problem in the United States, people have to ask whether it’s a good idea to make it easier and quicker for people to get to and pay for fast food.
The answer isn’t good. McDonald’s Restaurants is testing a mobile payment application for its menu items. The test is taking place in Salt Lake City and Austin, Texas, Bloomberg News reports.
McDonald’s reported that same-store sales were off from August. The mobile app could help.
Bloomberg said the chain is looking for ways to spark sales growth at a time when Americans are eating out less.
