Find yourself always saying 'keep the receipt?' According to former McDonald's employees, you could be missing out on fresher and better burgers!
If you've developed the reflex of turning down your receipt every time you pop by over to McDonald's for a cheeky Big Mac, you may want to break the habit immediately. After making your order at McDonald's, don’t hesitate to ask for your receipt - it could be pretty important to you.
According to a former McDonald's employee on Quora, there are several secrets that make grant you a better experience each time to place your order. The most crucial of which is always insisting for a receipt.
The reason? Simple: if you ask for your receipt, employees may think you could be a mystery shopper, meaning a customer paid by the company to try out the restaurant. After their visit, these mystery shoppers make a report about what they didn’t like so that the restaurant can improve on these weak points for normal customers.
McDonald's employees are therefore more attentive to clients who ask for a receipt (mystery shoppers ask for a receipt so that they can be reimbursed later) and serve them the warmest and freshest possible sandwiches and fries.
So don't be shy - always ask!
