How and why the McDonald's McPizza failed in 315 seconds

The McDonald’s McPizza: A Huge Failure

The thumbnail may give away the reason behind the McDonald’s McPizza failure but before all that, the question, for me, remains: did they really need to add pizza to their repertoire? The most remarkable thing was that while McDonald’s discontinued serving McPizzas, a franchise owner kept them going until 2017. Oh, and you can still get pizzas from a McDonald’s in Orlando, Florida (the address is 6875 W Sand Lake Rd, Orlando, FL 32819-9349 if you’re in the area and desperate for pizza from the Golden Arches and nowhere else on or near International Drive).
