Oak Brook, Illinois headquartered McDonald’s announced that it is testing the feasibility of putting fresh beef on its menu in 14 outlets in Dallas, Texas. It is still too early for them to say whether they can take the idea of replacing their frozen hamburger patties across the nation.
The test is so far only being done with quarter pound burger patties.
“Like all of our tests, this one too is designed to see what works and what doesn’t within our restaurants,” said Lisa McComb, a McDonald’s spokeswoman.
The test is taken place during a period in which McDonald is attempting to reverse a recent business slump it has been experiencing. The company wants to try and improve business by improving some of its most basic items on its menu.
McDonald’s is the country’s largest hamburger fast-food restaurant chain, with 14,000 locations.
