In response to declining foot traffic and recent price hikes linked to inflation, McDonald’s is reportedly contemplating the addition of a $5 meal deal to its menu. This affordable option, as detailed by Bloomberg, would potentially include popular items such as a McChicken, a McDouble, or four-piece chicken nuggets, accompanied by fries and a drink.


The fast-food giant is currently in discussions with franchise owners about the feasibility of introducing this meal deal. These talks are aimed at finding ways to attract more customers by emphasizing value amidst rising meal costs that have impacted the restaurant industry nationwide.

McDonald’s CEO Chris Kempczinski highlighted the importance of maintaining affordability during an earnings call on April 30th. While it remains uncertain which locations will first offer the $5 meal, the initiative reflects the company’s strategy to stay competitive and accessible to budget-conscious consumers.
