If you've been to a McDonald's recently, you may have noticed some changes to the outside of the building, but those aren't the only changes this franchise has been making recently. If you take a closer look you'll notice something that may have people thinking more about what they're eating.
"We swapped out the snipes on our menu boards to include the ones that had the nutritional information per menu item," said Local McDonald's Owner, Alex Burrell.
Burrell says they did this because, more and more, people want to know about their food.
"Consumers today are a little more conscious of what they're eating, and they want to know what's in their food, and we are proud to show them what's in our food because we have nothing to hide," said Burrell.
Not all customers are influenced by those little numbers, in fact, some say it won't change anything for them.
"No way, you know, I come here to get my fix for grease and good fries and it's not going to change a bit for me," said Vickie Houston.
Even if some don't want to use the posted information, Burrell says, everyone has the choice and posting nutrition information isn't new to the company. It's just being done in a new way now.
"On McDonald's.com you can build your meal and you can customize the menu items to fit your nutrition requirements," said Burrell.
McDonald's tested different methods of posting nutritional information on menus in other markets like New York before deciding to make the nation-wide change.
