McDonald’s is facing a shortage that could affect how you order from the chain: paper bags. Apparently the shortage is caused by dine-in customers receiving their food in paper bags instead of the usual plastic tray. McDonald’s says that the shortage isn’t REALLY bad, but customers may have to expect getting their dine-in orders back on trays. “Many new crew members have never had to deal with trays before,” a company memo from July read. “The transition to using trays has been slower, more difficult because we haven’t done it in so long.” Have you been dining in at McDonald’s recently? Are you ok getting your food served on trays?
