These are just some of the findings of a Euromonitor analysis, released last week, which looked at the ways in which operations among the world’s largest foodservice chain differs around the world.
For example, in 2011, Norway, where the cost of living is among the highest in the world, the average receipt clocked in at around $23.
According to the The Economist’s latest Big Mac Index, which is used to measure the purchasing power parity between two currencies, a Big Mac sandwich in Norway sets customers back $7.06 USD. That compares to $4.33 in the US.
The second most expensive country in which to buy a McDonald’s meal is France, where the average bill clocks in at about $16.
