Ward will oversee a portfolio that includes the prolific Natural History Unit, which recently opened an office in Los Angeles, as well as the Docs, Science and Factual units.

Ward served as president of Vice Studios for nearly three years and took on responsibility for London Gangs producer Pulse Films upon the departure of founding duo Thomas Benski and Marissa Clifford, at which time Vice took full control of indie.

She oversaw the likes of Oscar nominees To run away, Hulu’s tell me lies and FX doc Pride. Prior to joining Vice, she was International President of Refinery29.

Ward said: “The appetite for factual programming from audiences and broadcasters continues to grow and I am extremely delighted to be part of Factual at the BBC Studios as it is poised to achieve even greater heights. .”

McDonalds Monopoly 2022

All you need to know…

It goes through the McDonald’s intranet, so it is only accessible to staff members.

According to tradition, the McDonald’s monopoly lasts six weeks in the UK.

This means that the end date for this year’s game will be Tuesday, October 18, 2022.

After that, the franchise gives winners a few more months to claim the prizes.

This year, players have more chances to win than ever.

Fast food fans can have a chance to win if they collect game pieces that appear on foods like fries and McFlurries.

A new double peel feature is coming to stores nationwide, which means players can double their gameplay online through the McDonald’s app.

As before, you’ll be able to peel to reveal a Monopoly property or instant prize – you get a peel on menu items, then an additional peel in the McDonald’s app.

The fast food app has introduced a new digital game board and prize wallet, making winning and collecting prizes easier than before.

What prizes can I win?

Every year, McDonald’s Monopoly fans eagerly wait to find out what prizes are up for grabs.

How Devyani Int. of Pizza Hut dodges high inflation https://mikeydee.com/how-devyani-int-of-pizza-hut-dodges-high-inflation/ Tue, 20 Sep 2022 04:46:10 +0000 https://mikeydee.com/how-devyani-int-of-pizza-hut-dodges-high-inflation/

Devyani International Ltd, the largest franchise partner of YUM! brand in India, introduces pocket-friendly options to protect volumes against declines in a high inflation environment. One of its three core brands, Pizza Hut, launched the Flavor Fun line of pizzas from 79 to make their offering a value for money product. The other two main brands are KFC and Costa Coffee.

In August, Indian inflation measured by the consumer price index rose to 7%, mainly driven by more expensive foodstuffs. In a high and sustained inflationary environment, consumer spending on discretionary goods and services could take a back seat. Expensive vegetables such as potatoes and onions would also drive up input costs, which would be a double whammy for companies operating in the fast food sector.

On the right track

“The risk for Devyani International stems from a further rise in commodity prices (primarily milk) as this could hurt gross margins, pushing the company to further increase prices across its product portfolios,” Sachin said. Bobade, Vice President, Research, Dolat Capital. Market.

Nonetheless, the latest addition to the pizza lineup helps Pizza Hut compete with competitors’ value menu offerings. “With the introduction of the Flavor Fun range, Pizza Hut has filled a key gap in the menu,” Edelweiss Securities Ltd. Prior to this launch, Pizza Hut’s cheapest deal was 200. “Although a lower gross margin product, it should boost average daily sales and help attract younger, more price-conscious customers,” said the Edelweiss report dated September 15.

This mantra is also followed by other QSR companies. McDonald’s Mc Saver combo and Restaurant Brand Asia’s Stunner menu are some examples, analysts noted.

Meanwhile, in CY22 so far, Devyani shares are up 14%, but valuations aren’t exactly cheap. The stock trades at an EV/Ebitda of 25.85x based on FY24 estimates, according to Bloomberg data.

“Devyani is better positioned than many QSR competitors due to a diverse brand mix, higher Ebitda margins and strong balance sheet. These factors support its FY24 valuation multiple,” said said Kaustubh Pawaskar, Assistant Vice President, Research, Sharekhan of BNP Paribas.

Store additions are a controllable key for investors. In the first quarter of FY23, KFC and Pizza Hut saw strong improvement in their respective same-store sales growth, with store counts increasing sequentially and year-over-year.

Woman sues Dothan McDonald’s for millions after drive-through visit goes wrong, lawsuit claims https://mikeydee.com/woman-sues-dothan-mcdonalds-for-millions-after-drive-through-visit-goes-wrong-lawsuit-claims/ Mon, 19 Sep 2022 19:30:00 +0000 https://mikeydee.com/woman-sues-dothan-mcdonalds-for-millions-after-drive-through-visit-goes-wrong-lawsuit-claims/

DOTHAN, Ala (WDHN) — A DeFuniak Springs woman has filed a lawsuit against a Dothan McDonald’s after alleging she was served “chemicals in a cup” and was denied medical attention from staff .

According to the lawsuit, Sherry Head was in the McDonald’s drive-thru at 3520 Ross Clark Circle, when she ordered a coffee in December 2021.

Over the drive-thru speakerphone, an employee said her coffee was unavailable because the machine was being cleaned. Another employee immediately said, “No, it’s ready.”

“I took a sip, and immediately my mouth and throat went numb, then started to burn. Now I have permanent scarring in my throat and may need corrective surgery said Head.

The lawsuit alleges that after tasting the drink. Head noticed something was wrong, she went back to the drive-thru and asked for help. The manager at the window said, “It’s okay.” and slammed it.

Head called emergency services and when first responders arrived, McDonald’s employees again failed to help, refusing to show first responders the bottle of chemicals that had been used to clean the machine.

The Chiefs complaint states:

“For nearly a decade, McDonald’s has promised to improve safety standards to prevent its customers from being poisoned by chemical cleaning solutions; and for nearly a decade McDonald’s failed to do so. . . it’s time for McDonald’s to change its ways.

The lawsuit filed in Houston County court seeks $3 million in compensatory damages and $10 million in punitive damages.

Head’s doctors say she was diagnosed with scarring and narrowing of her throat, difficulty swallowing, chronic gastritis, acid reflux and abdominal pain caused by inflammation and erosion of her stomach. She may need surgery in the future to repair damage to her throat and preserve her ability to swallow.

Murphey Family Restaurants is investigating the alleged complaint and will issue a response on Monday.

This isn’t the first reported incident against the fast food franchise for alleged chemicals in their beverages.

The hack got almost a million views on the app. Other fans of the fast food restaurant chimed in with their tips for fresh fries.

One said: “You can also ask for the fries to be cooked to order (they drop them when you order).”

“Every time I donate to McDonald’s my mom says there’s no salt so the fries are fresh and hot,” said another. One commenter wrote, “Just ask them done right. They’ll be fresh every time.”

California fast food industry calls for referendum on new labor laws | american unions https://mikeydee.com/california-fast-food-industry-calls-for-referendum-on-new-labor-laws-american-unions/ Sun, 18 Sep 2022 09:01:00 +0000 https://mikeydee.com/california-fast-food-industry-calls-for-referendum-on-new-labor-laws-american-unions/

The fast food industry is seeking to reverse one of the biggest labor victories in recent US history by trying to scrap a new law in California that will establish an industry council for the sector on standards wages and other regulations, including safety.

The Fast Food Accountability and Standards Recovery Act, AB 257, was signed into law by California Governor Gavin Newsom on September 5, which is seen as a huge boost for a US labor movement seeking to leverage a wave of organizing campaigns.

The law paves the way for a statewide fast food industry council that includes workers, state regulators, franchises and their parent companies to set wage standards and other regulations for industry in the state.

There are approximately 500,000 fast food industry workers in California who will be represented under the law. It also provides a route for local municipalities to create their own similar councils overseeing the industry and reporting to the state council. The law only applies to fast food companies with at least 100 outlets nationwide under a common brand.

The law is the first of its kind in the United States, with workers in other states pushing to pass similar legislation, such as nail salon workers in New York.

Fast food workers have long reported widespread problems of workplace violence, sexual harassment, discrimination, retaliation for reporting abuse or for organizing, wage theft and poverty wages. The new law was touted as a way to begin to address these issues plaguing the industry. Fast food workers across California have staged more than 300 strikes over the past year to rally support for the legislation.

As the workers are now organize to collect signatures To create the advice, the fast food industry is mobilizing to try to overturn the law, saying it will hurt businesses and lead to a 20% increase in menu prices due to possible wage increases up to $22 an hour in 2023. The industry also says the law will not strengthen worker protections.

Opponents have also claimed the law could cause restaurants to close and deter franchise owners from opening new establishments in California.

The National Restaurant Association and the International Franchise Association have created a coalition of industry groups to support a statewide election referendum initiative to overturn the law, and have warned that other states may follow suit. by passing similar laws. Major fast food companies spent at least $1 million lobbying against the bill between June 2021 and June 2022.

The law is expected to come into force on January 1, 2023, but could be delayed if a referendum vote is allowed. If the referendum request is accepted by the California Attorney General, groups supporting the referendum would have until April 1, 2023 to collect approximately 623,000 signatures from valid voters to qualify for the 2024 ballot.

In a press call, workers and union leaders slammed the referendum proposal as a way to silence workers and an attempt by fast food companies to use their wealth to subvert democracy.

“We will continue to organize to fight the opposition,” said Lizzet Aguilar, who has worked at a McDonald’s in Los Angeles, Calif., for nearly 20 years. “We will continue to fight. We have a lot of opposition, but we must continue to show that we want our union.

Other workers described their own experiences.

Alondra Hernandez helped organize a strike at the Burger King where she works in Oakland, California, after she suffered several instances of violence from customers while on the job. “There hasn’t been a day that I’ve come home and didn’t acknowledge that a violent issue has happened at work,” Hernandez said.

She explained that she and her colleagues began to organize for better safety measures after an incident when a customer entered the store from the drive-thru with their food, threw a hamburger in the face of a colleague while demanding a refund and smashed a Plexiglas screen that cut into the face of one of his supervisors.

“With AB 257, there will be the potential where we will have training on how to handle issues like these, improve inspections of working conditions in stores and help improve our wages,” said Hernandez said. “I believe with this council, government officials, labor and industry representatives, that representation is fair. No team is going to win everything, but we will have stability.

Proponents of the bill noted that its passage is an important step toward finally organizing a union by fast food workers, a task that has eluded workers due to high turnover, franchising and widespread retaliation workers face across the industry. Less than 2% of workers in the food services and drinking places industry are currently represented by unions.

Aguilar said she led her colleagues in several strikes against dangerous Covid-19 working conditions in 2020, and that she, along with other workers, was fired in retaliation. The State of California eventually fined the franchise owner and ordered the reinstatement of workers with back wages in 2021.

“This law means a lot,” Aguilar said. “It’s a big win. Fast food workers have been through a lot on the job. AB 257 is going to have a lot of benefits for workers, like helping to end discrimination, workplace violence, and the injustice of wage theft. Many of us have been victims of wage theft.

Batman Returns’ Darker Gotham Ruined a McDonald’s Tie https://mikeydee.com/batman-returns-darker-gotham-ruined-a-mcdonalds-tie/ Sat, 17 Sep 2022 16:00:00 +0000 https://mikeydee.com/batman-returns-darker-gotham-ruined-a-mcdonalds-tie/

Many fans saw the Batman franchise go dark and gritty with Christopher Nolan Dark Knight Trilogy. However, things got dark much sooner than that, thanks to Tim Burton. After a successful first Batman film with Michael Keaton as Caped Crusader, Burton followed with Return of Batman, a film that made the entire franchise as dark as night. It wasn’t dark like in the realist Black Knight, yet. This film was dark in the fantasy definition of the term, and it got so bad it created trouble with its advertising sponsor McDonald’s.


When Return of Batman came out, it took a lot of people by surprise. The film was much darker than the first film. And while Joker killed several people before Batman stopped him in the 1989 film, the violence in the second film was greater. Penguin murdered a woman in cold blood by throwing her off a roof and Batman couldn’t save her. Catwoman also gave Max Shreck a big kiss before electrocuting him, frying him in a disgusting moment. However, some black goops caused McDonald’s to stop promoting the film.

Batman Returns Disgusted McDonald’s

Fans have often wondered why Tim Burton quit after Return of Batman. But for those wondering what the movies would have looked like had Burton stayed on board, the answer is probably underwhelming. Everything would have changed, and Burton left because he knew it. He fought with producers and Warner Bros. because he wanted to make an even better movie than the first one, and they wanted something that could help them sell toys and endorsement deals. One of the sponsors was McDonald’s, and when that company complained about Return of Batmanthis allowed Burton to leave the franchise.

But the biggest complaint wasn’t Penguin killing the woman or Catwoman’s sexualized actions with Batman. While the Dove Foundation sent letters to McDonald’s accusing them of promoting violence to sell Return of Batman Happy Meals, the restaurant had another problem with the film. At one point, black slime began to come out of Penguin’s mouth in a visually disgusting moment. Burton said yahoo in 2014“I think I upset McDonald’s. [They asked] ‘What’s that black stuff coming out of the Penguin’s mouth. You can’t sell Happy Meals with that!'” McDonald’s walked away from the film, but continued to sell Happy Meals and toys.

Batman Returns’ Backlash helped create Batman & Robin

The backlash had an unexpected response. Most fans see batman and robin as the worst Batman movie ever made. Although it had its supporters, the film was a bit over the top and comedic for those who fell in love with the two Tim Burton films. It all started with batman forever, which wasn’t quite as crazy and colorful as the fourth film, but still added plenty of lighthearted action as Warner Bros. moved decisively away from Burton’s dark storylines and atmosphere. While Two-Face killed with a laugh, it was all done comedically, with Tommy Lee Jones pounding it.

Warner Bros. realized the importance of Happy Meals and action figure sales and did not want to alienate business partners or parent groups. Selling movie tickets wasn’t as important as selling toys anymore, so Batman became more family-friendly after the Return of Batman controversial. In preparation for a special broadcast on batman and robinChris O’Donnell said he felt like he was doing a big toy commercial, and that’s pretty much what it was, thanks to Penguin’s black slime.
