McDonald's, like all the other stuff that was cool to 90s kids, is going through something of a renaissance.
Shares in the chain are up almost 28 per cent on last year, and sales are up 5.4 per cent thanks to a turnaround plan put in place by new British CEO Steve Easterbrook to improve on five years' worth of disappointing results.
Here are some jaw-dropping McFacts about one of the biggest chains in the McWorld:
1. McDonald's founder, Ray Kroc, was as ruthless in his approach to business as any Wall Street yuppie:
Contracts are like hearts. They're meant to be broken.
Michael Keaton plays Kroc in the forthcoming film The Founder
2. The first item on their menu was actually a hot dog, not a hamburger.

3. In German branches you can buy beer.
4. If McDonald's was a country it would be the 68th richest in the world.
