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


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

Some McDonald's locations in the area have a new promotion that puts the fast back in fast food. The restaurant promises that drive-thru orders will be ready in 60 seconds or less. If they're not, guests will receive a free lunch item during a future meal, the Miami Herald reported.

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.
