McDonald’s revenues totalled $5.35bn for the second quarter (Q2) of this year ending 30 June, a 12% increase compared to $6.049bn for the same period last year.

Net income of the company was $1.496bn for the second quarter, a 7% increase from $1.395bn last year.

McDonald’s president and chief executive officer Steve Easterbrook said: “We’re seeing good performance across our business as our customers tell us that they value and appreciate the moves we’re making to elevate the McDonald’s experience.

“We’re pleased with the results of our international business and the progress we’re making in the US on executing on our ‘Velocity Growth Plan’ priorities.
