For this reporter, evaluating the burger first-hand was problematic: I’ve been a vegetarian for more than a dozen years.

A Big Mac is a well-known burger from the food restaurant McDonalds. In this paper I will talk about what kind of people would eat a big mac and where they would be found eating it. I will also talk a little about the culture of the big mac and back up my ideas with some evidence. The Big Mac is a food for an on the go person, not someone who is very athletic or cares about their body size and health.

Burger King over the course of years has evolved from its 1954 InstaBurger King privately owned origins to the publically traded company you see today. The core competency of this company is its flame broiled burgers that it offers to consumers on a daily basis from their nearly 12,000 restaurants all over the world and the innovative way the company advertises it.
