McDonald’s is raising Irish prices on some of its most popular products for the first time in 14 years

McDonald’s is raising the price of its cheeseburger for the first time in 14 years as the fast-food giant feels the impact of rising costs.

Rice is set by each individual franchise and varies from restaurant to restaurant, but Irish customers can expect the price of their beloved cheeseburger to go up from €1.50 to around €1.70.

It is a clear sign that the cost-of-living crisis is hitting popular consumer goods.

The company said the price increase will affect a number of its “core offerings,” including breakfast meals, main meals, large coffees, McFlurrys, Chicken Mayo, the McNuggets Share Box and some Go Large options.

Some products are not affected, such as B. the fast-food company’s line of wraps and salads, others will vary across the country.

The Irish Independent has confirmed the threat of price increases for Ireland after similar moves were announced in the UK.

The company told UK customers this morning that it is raising the price of a cheeseburger from 99p to £1.19.

McDonald’s said it is increasing the price of “menu items hit hardest by inflation” by 10p to 20p in the UK.

Alistair Macrow, the company’s chief executive officer for the UK and Ireland, said the increases were needed to help the company get “through incredibly challenging times”.

“Just like you, our company, our franchisees who own and operate our restaurants, and our suppliers are all feeling the effects of rising inflation,” he said.

“While we see costs rising, we are committed to developing and rewarding our people, supporting our suppliers and the 25,000 UK and Irish farmers we work with and continuing to help invest in community programs across the country .

“In times like these, we know it’s important to offer excellent value for money. Ever since we opened in the UK in 1974, we have been committed to providing great tasting food at affordable prices and that commitment will not change.

“But today’s pressures mean we, like many others, have to make some difficult decisions about our pricing.

McDonald’s said it understands increases “are not good news” and said it has “delayed and minimized these changes for as long as we could”.

“We will continue to listen to your wishes and work tirelessly to find solutions to today’s cost challenges affecting our business,” he said.

“We remain focused on offering you the best possible combination of choice and value during these extraordinary times.”
