How Asking For A Maccas Receipt Can Ensure The FRESHEST Meal

We love when we get secrets from the inside - and when they come from McDonalds, it’s even better.

A worker from the fast food chain has revealed the guaranteed way to get the freshest, hottest meal possible.

Ask for a receipt. Yep, according to Kamran Adan, who claims to have worked for a year in a London branch, staff give priority to those who ask for a receipt, for fears they could be a ‘mystery shopper’ sent from McDonalds HQ to monitor them.


There are also two periods during the day where staff are on extra special lookout for these covert customers, so the service is at an all time high.

“Basically between 12-2pm and 5-7pm workers have to be extra careful because that is when gapbusters (mystery shoppers,) who are paid, visit McDonald’s restaurants and rate their experience,” he wrote on Quora.

“This then goes to the overall store rating and every store manager will do everything to ensure this rating is as positive as possible.”

Kamran says “it is easy” to spot a mystery shopper “because they always ask for a receipt (so they can get their food costs reimbursed by the company employing them.)”

Sharing the tip with fast food fans, he added: “So, if you ask for a receipt in that time everyone will be immediately alert that you could be a potential gapbuster and they’ll make sure to serve you the freshest burger and fries and give you priority over everyone else.”
