McDonald’s Hikes Prices

McDonald's Ireland has confirmed that it will be increasing the price of several items on its menus. It is increasing the price of a cheeseburger - for the first time in over 14 years - taking it from €1.50 to €1.70.

In a statement, the company said: "Price increases will affect select McDonald's offerings including breakfast meals, main meals, large coffees, McFlurrys, the Chicken Mayo, the McNuggets share box and some Go Large options.

"However, some products will be unaffected, such as McDonald's wraps and salad range."

It said that prices are set by each individual franchise and will vary from restaurant to restaurant.

Alistair Macrow, McDonald's UK & Ireland CEO, said: "We're living through incredibly challenging times, and we’re all seeing the cost of everyday items, such as food and energy, increase in a way many of us have never experienced. Just like you, our company, our franchisees who own and operate our restaurants, and our suppliers are all feeling the impact of rising inflation."
