    • I appreciate your information, my paper is due on Monday.

      Thanks Again,

    • Breakfast accounts for about 33% of dollar sales and 37% of customer counts. Check average is about $5.05 per person for breakfast and $5.71 overall. Stewart O.

    • I am working on a project for my MBA and need to know
      the percentage of sales that comes from breakfast. Also,
      what is the average purchase per person.

      Thanks,

    • In a word, YES. A $5 fee can have a staggering effect on small regular investments. Imagine, for example, that this fee had been adopted 10 years ago by Coca-Cola, and an investor sent in $50 a
      month...for a total investment of $6,000. Rather than ending up with 480 shares worth $32,017, the investor would have ended
      up with a bit less than 432 shares worth $28,815. So, while the agent would have "grabbed" $5 from each investment...for a
      total of $600, the investor would also have lost out on 10% of the capital gains. The $600 "bite" would have cost him or her
      $3,202--more than half of the $6,000 invested. This calculation is based on the $5 fee. Some plans charge a per-share commission too,
      which would further diminish the investor�s return.

    • thanks for the info drps are a poor persons way of creating wealth abeit the expensive way but it is a step in the right direction i think ive never done it because of the expense involved and the paper work --paper work has to be a nite mare!! right? esp on and inv basis where not protected in a ira accto etc.

    • Historically, most DRP's have been pretty much without fees. Those with fees even had relatively modest albeit irritating
      fees. More recently, a good number of DRP's have changed from no-fee to fee programs. The MAC used to have a good investor
      friendly program and made people feel very good when they initially enrolled. About 2 years ago they revamped their program so that
      every single transaction with them involves a fee and the fees are either the highest or amongst the highest that I have seen in
      various DRPs.

      What really made it irritating is that they simultaneously launched a PR campaign touting how this new program was so good for investors and a good chunk of the financial media bought it. Pissed off a number of small investors.

      On the kharma end of things, the stock has been pretty flat ever since.

    • Mac Donald's screwed the small investors by tacking on fees out the Ying-Yang. For small investors it is nearly as cheap to just go through a broker now. You can request infomation from MacDonald's for free.

    • how did the big MAC screw people in the drp program ?? thanks

    • Lived in Ohio most of my life. Ate in Bob Evan's restraunts fairly regularly. Never thought of investing in the company until I came across the DSP/DRIP in Netstockdirect. Now I own a small stake and plan to keep accumulating.
