McDonalds announced the latest price changes in the US on Wednesday, and the price for a cup of coffee has increased from $1.99 to $1,199.
That’s an 8 percent increase.
The cost of a burger has also increased by $1 to $2.99.
McDonalds said the price of some products such as fries and chicken McNuggets have remained the same, but that it is raising prices on certain products such a breakfast sandwich, hot dogs, hamburgers, salads and soups.
“We are taking action to better align with our customers’ shopping needs and their comfort levels.
Our goal is to bring down prices on all items across the store,” said Michael Smith, McDonalds US marketing director.
The company said it will continue to offer the same items for $1 on the restaurant chain’s app.
While the changes may not make a difference to consumers, McDonald’s is trying to address a complaint that it sells cheap, low-quality products that people are buying for less than the cost of the products.
The company said last year that it raised its minimum wage from $8 an hour to $10.25.
