McDonald’s is switching to fresh beef patties in more than 75 restaurants in the Tulsa, Oklahoma area, according to a Bloomberg report.
The company’s introduction of fresh beef to Tulsa-area locations, makes for a total of around 130 McDonald’s between Oklahoma and the Dallas-Fort Worth area serving fresh beef on some sandwiches like the Quarter Pounder and Bacon Cheeseburgers.
The switch from frozen marks another turning point for the fast food giant under Chief Executive Officer Steve Easterbrook, who took over in March 2015. Since taking the reigns, Easterbrook has brought a new wave of changes to the McDonald’s structure and menu. The company is moving from its infamous “McDonald’s campus” headquarters located in the Chicago western suburbs to the city’s West Loop neighborhood. It has also dropped artificial preservatives and introduced all-day breakfast. Shares for McDonald’s were last trading down 0.5% late in trading Tuesday.
