DIVERSITY CHALLENGE AT THE MCDONALDS ASIA Students Name Institution The challenge faced by McDonalds The McDonalds is one of the most successful companies on earth. It is a company that was opened in the United States back in the 1940s (McDonalds 2017). originally the firm used to sell its products to the American citizens or the tourists who visited the nation. The company has always been able to sell a wide range of beverages that have been well reviewed by its most royal customers-even if some of the products that are sold by the firm have been castigated in relation to the levels of calories. As the firm continued to grow it made a managerial decision of opening up foreign outlets in Asia South America and Europe among others. This was a great milestone but the latter faced a big challenge when it came to issues to deal with Certo S. (2015). Supervision: Concepts and skill-building. McGraw-Hill Higher Education. Fearon J.
