McDonald's to Phase Out the Double Cheeseburger From the Dollar Menu

We were warned that this might happen all the way back in August, and now the time has finally come: McDonald's is moving to phase the Double Cheeseburger off the dollar menu.

The Oak Brook-based fast food giant confirmed Tuesday that it is asking franchise leaders to support the new sandwich, to be called the McDouble, which would have two hamburger patties and one piece of cheese.

Franchisee leaders are recommending their colleagues vote to approve the new sandwich, according to a memo obtained by Crain’s. The memo notes that the new double hamburger with one piece of cheese would sell on the Dollar Menu, while the double hamburger with two pieces of cheese would be sold at a higher price.

Let it be noted that democracy's not dead.

Let it also be noted that the cost of adding cheese to the sandwich of your choice is $0.30 — if the new double cheeseburger price runs so much as one cent higher than $1.29, it is your patriotic duty to instead order a McDouble with extra cheese. Don't let them win.
