McDonald’s Bounces Back: Inside the International Technology Outage

McDonald's Bounces Back Inside the International Technology Outage

McDonald’s recently faced an international technology outage, leading to temporary closures in Australia, Hong Kong, Japan, New Zealand, and the UK. Contrary to initial concerns, the issue was not related to cyber-security. With most restaurants now reopened, McDonald’s expressed gratitude to customers and staff for their patience. Here’s the company’s response:

Dear customers,
Earlier today, we experienced a technology outage which impacted all of our restaurants. 

This wasn’t related to a cybersecurity event and most restaurants have now re-opened and are serving up all your faves.
A huge thank you to our customers and our hard-working crew for their patience, we’re sorry for the inconvenience.
Team Macca’s

Just like during any other outage, X (previously Twitter) quickly flooded with memes.
