Terry Was Making Cheeseburgers During McCash for Kids [Gallery]
For some unknown reason Buhl McDonald’s General Manager Katie Small allowed me to run the register and make cheeseburgers during Tuesday’s McCash for Kids fundraiser. During that time I managed to add a McCafe to a kid’s Happy Meal (kids need caffeine, right?), and have a new respect for McDonald’s employees.
Katie walked me through the entire process of assembling a standard McDonald’s Cheeseburger, from toasting the buns, adding the mustard and ketchup, the cheese, and how to properly wrap a burger the “McDonald’s Way.” I was slow and fairly incompetent on the line, but once the kitchen hit peak they powered through like a machine.
Hygiene was extremely important in the kitchen. So much so that each employee must enter their number into the computerized hand washing station that instructed how long to lather and rinse. Everything has a very specific way of being cleaned and manged.
I really enjoyed my time at the Buhl McDonald’s during McCash for Kids. My thanks to Katie an her cool staff for letting us come hang out!
