For years, McDonald’s and Burger King (BK) have been the world’s two largest and most successful fast foodchains. Both have battled out all these years over their operational differences which form the core of their corporate culture. The “Doing It All For You” (McDonald’s) vs. “Having It Your Way” (BK’s) stems fromtheir respective production methods.
