McDonald's Holdings Co (Japan) said Friday that it will raise the prices of its key products by about 2.5% on average nationwide, due to rising raw materials costs. It will be the third time for the company to increase its prices since 2007. About 60% of menu items will be subject to the price rises.
The price of a Big Mac will be raised to 290-320 yen from the current 280-310 yen, and that of medium French fries to 240-250 yen from 230-240 yen. A small cup of premium roast coffee, launched at 100 yen this February, will now cost up to 120 yen.
The company will keep prices unchanged for some products, including its 100-yen hamburger, while lowering the prices of some items.© JCN
