I find this piece of news is rather interesting as never knew that McDonalds over sea is using different approach. Collaboration is my of my all time favorite marketing tool to enhance both brand publicity by riding over 2 brand audiences. One of the latest news I read is, McDonald’s x Nicholas Tse in Hong Kong with previous successful collaboration last year in China and also this year they are adding in star chef Ramón Freire to launch limited signature crafted burgers over China. Each star created one special burger and named after himself.
