We recently traveled a bit and noticed that a small senior coffee at all the McDonald’s we visited was under 59 cents, except ours here in Payson. Store #5783 on Highway 260 charges $1.
I kept copies of cash register receipts from McDonald’s we have visited and noticed “small senior coffee” in Lordsburg, N.M., store #10833, was 45 cents per cup; Farmers Branch, Texas, store #10359, was 59 cents per cup; Childress, Texas, store #13489, was 29 cents per cup; San Antonio, Texas, store #28656, was 55 cents per cup and these locations were on very heavy traveled major highways.
Even in the Phoenix/Scottsdale area a small senior coffee at store #31036, Mesa, was 55 cents per cup.
Our town of Payson has a senior population of over 30 percent, twice the percent of the U.S. and the state of Arizona with an average income of $34,000 gross, and yet this McDonald’s charges $1 for a small senior coffee.
What makes this McDonald’s so special other than profit?
