Who is faster at preparing a McDonald’s order: The Flash or Superman? How about a part-time minimum wage employee in Japan?
McDonald’s Japan has really put the pressure on staff with its new campaign '60 seconds service or free.' Customers who are not provided with their meal in full punctuality receive a coupon for a free McDonald’s Japan burger of their choice.
To referee this event, an hourglass will be stationed at every McDonald’s Japan location. It’s of interest whether the meal still qualifies as free if the integrity of the order is compromised due to hasty preparations.
Judging by the included video, it’s pretty clear McDonald’s Japan employees are of an elite class -- likely a product of an intensive training program. Or maybe they are all just robots. Either way, 60 seconds is an impressive preparation time.
