McDonald's November restaurant sales beat expectations
Posted : Monday, 10 December 2012 08:08AM
(Reuters) - McDonald's Corp <MCD.N> reported on Monday a stronger-than-expected 2.4 percent rise in November sales at established restaurants, helped by strength in breakfast in the United States and lower-priced offerings in Europe.
Analysts, on average, had expected a 0.17 percent rise in sales at restaurants open at least 13 months, according to Consensus Metrix.
