Despite the place that McDonald's french fries hold in my heart, the big wholesale retailer seems like the better choice.
McDonald's owns or franchises almost 39,000 of its fast-food restaurants in 119 countries. As the owner of Olive Garden, Longhorn Steakhouse, and several other restaurant chains, Darden operates more than 1,700 restaurants, most of which are in North America. Now, as the restaurant sector continues its reopenings, restaurant investors may ponder whether the fast-food model of McDonald's or a casual dining chain such as Darden will be the more profitable investment.

Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL) is a great stock to own, but the one area where it may be a bit underwhelming is its dividend. Pfizer (NYSE: PFE) is a drug manufacturer with sales all over the world. The New York-based company may not generate the level of long-term growth that you may expect from a top tech stock like Apple, but it can make for a stable, consistent dividend stock to hold in your portfolio.

McDonald's (NYSE: MCD) was one of the business surprises of the COVID-19 pandemic, and not necessarily in a good way. Longbow analyst Alton Stump said things weren't much better in April with same-store sales down 15%, but over the first three weeks of May they've improved to negative 5%, and he thinks the fast-food giant will rebound more quickly than its rivals. McDonald's will benefit, because it's centered around the drive-thru window, which generates about 70% of its business.
McDonald's (MCD) focuses on drive-thru, delivery & take-away amid the coronavirus pandemic to drive sales.

As businesses in the U.S. start to reopen, some McDonalds workers are worried the fast-food chain isn’t doing enough to protect them and their families. Their lawyers have filed a class-action lawsuit alleging the burger giant is a “public nuisance.” It’s a strategy that’s been used in the past to try and shutter topless bars. The lawsuit isn’t seeking money, but wants to force McDonalds to supply adequate safety gear, such as face masks, as workers return to work. The employees claim that McDonald’s created unsafe workplace, posing a threat to community health. Workplace safety is typically under the jurisdiction of the federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration – or OSHA. But by focusing the lawsuit on the threat to the public, the employees are hoping to take their case outside of OSHA and into the courts. This comes as McDonald’s workers around the country have protested, demanding they be given safety gear at work. In Chicago, workers filed at least four complaints with OSHA, but - according to the lawsuit - the agency declined to inspect work sites. OSHA did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
McDonald's (NYSE: MCD) and Coca-Cola (NYSE: KO) are two of the most iconic brands in America.

McDonald's and Coca-Cola are evolving to attract new consumers.

Buying shares of Beyond Meat (NASDAQ: BYND) or McDonald's (NYSE: MCD) is a way to invest in an American classic: the burger.
