Dining with the Stars
These types of Celebrity Meals have been catching on. McDonald's shared the success of McDonalds’ Famous Orders program. The Travis Scott meal – and revealing what the musician’s go-to McDonald’s order and enabling customers to order the same with ease - has been a whirlwind success.
“Nothing had a greater impact on our digital business, than the introduction of this program last year,” Joe Erlinger - President of McDonald's USA, in the Q1'21 earnings call with analysts. “We've retained many of the digital customers acquired during those Famous Order promotions."
