The United States Federal Trade Commission is taking McDonald’s ice cream machines constantly breaking seriously.
The FTC reached out to McDonald’s this summer in regards to the franchise’s constant problems with broken ice cream machines and the overly complicated methods implemented to get them fixed, according to the Wall Street Journal.
While many people now laugh at the well-known notion that McDonald’s ice cream machines are constantly broken, franchise owners don’t find it so funny.
The WSJ reported that McDonald’s ice cream products account for 60% of the franchise’s revenue.
This guy found out the company that manufactures the machines is in cahoots with McDonalds.
The fees are astronomical for ‘calling the guy’ to fix it.
$144 for the first 30 minutes, and $315 for each additional 15 minutes.
There is a fix developed but McDonalds does not want franchisees using this fix.
