Insights, Strategy & the Idea
During the current economic crisis, Super Value has become the hot topic of 2009 and this year also marks 10 years of McDonald’s in China. Throughout this whole time, the price of McDonald’s Super-Value combo never changed. Our challenge was to leverage the current economic climate and see how we could further strengthen the perception of “McDonald’s = Super Value” in people’s minds. Our idea is to establish The World’s 1st McDonald’s Online Auction Store.
