McDonald's earnings surge as CEO hails turnaround
[NEW YORK] All-day breakfast and the "McPick2" value promotion lifted McDonald's US sales in the first quarter, enabling the fast food company to score a big jump in earnings released on Friday. The burger chain, which installed Steve Easterbrook as chief executive a year ago with a mission to turn around its sagging business, scored net income of US$1.1 billion, up 35.4 per cent from the year-ago period. The results mark the third straight quarter of earnings growth under Easterbrook, who has put improved customer service at the center of efforts to reinvigorate the 61-year-old restaurant chain. "I'm pleased to report that our turnaround is taking hold," he said in a statement on Friday. "The ongoing investments we're making in running great restaurants and delivering what matters most to our customers are beginning to yield sustained positive results."
