These photos show why McDonald's is Australia's favorite restaurant
The fast-food chain just reported its fourth straight quarter of same-store sales growth in Australia, where McDonald's is fondly known as "Macca's."
It also recently ranked first among Australian's favorite restaurants, according to a survey by Wimdu, a site for apartment rentals.
Customers cited "good, tasty food," "convenience," and "low prices" as their top reasons for eating there.
McDonald's executives tout Australia as one of their strongest markets, and said on a recent earnings call that they look to Australia for ways to improve its restaurants around the world.
So what's so different about McDonald's in Australia?
Basically everything - including the ingredients, the restaurant models, the service, the menu, and the public image.
In Australia, many of the restaurants are unrecognizable compared with those in the US. They have bars of fresh food where you can watch your order being prepared.
