McDonald’s: 1-minute guarantee or you get FREE food

Live in South Florida and running short on time? You're in luck.

The move comes as McDonald's seeks to speed things up by cutting back on menu complexity. Last year, the fast-food giant posted its slowest average drive-thru wait time in the history of QSR Magazine's 15-year study.
