McDonalds y Burger King no harán una hamburguesa juntos para promover la paz mundial
Como muchas agencias de noticias lo habían reportado, Burger King recientemente colocó un anuncio en el periódico preguntándole a McDonalds sobre colaborar para hacer un “McWhopper”, para honrar el día internacional de la paz (el 21 de septiembre). La meta de Burger King era operar un restaurante por un día con empleados de ambas compañías para que vendieran la McWhopper, y que la ganancia de las ventas fueran donadas al Peace One Day, una organización que promueve el día internacional de la paz.
El director ejecutivo de McDonalds, Steve Easterbrook, respondió a la oferta mediante Facebook declarando: “Querido Burger King, inspiración por una buena causa… fabulosa  idea. Nos encanta la intención, pero pensamos que nuestras dos marcas podrían hacer algo mayor para marcar una diferencia”.
Easterbrook también declaró: “Reconozcamos que entre nosotros hay simplemente una competencia comercial amigable y ciertamente no las circunstancias desiguales del dolor real y sufrimiento de la guerra. PD: La próxima vez será suficiente una simple llamada”.


McDonalds rejects Burger King’s “McWhopper” proposal

McDonalds and Burger King won’t make a hamburger together to promote world peace any time soon.
As many news agencies have reported, Burger King recently placed newspaper ads asking McDonalds to collaborate on making a “McWhopper” to honor the International Day of Peace (Sept. 21). Burger King’s goal was to operate one restaurant for one day staffed by employees of both companies and sell the McWhopper, with the sales to be donated to Peace One Day, an organization that promotes the International Day of Peace.
McDonalds CEO Steve Easterbrook responded to the offer via Facebook, stating: “Dear Burger King, Inspiration for a good cause…great idea. We love the intention, but think our two brands could do something bigger to make a difference.”
Easterbrook also stated: “Let’s acknowledge that between us there is simply a friendly business competition and certainly not the unequaled circumstances of the real pain and suffering of war. P.S. A simple phone call will do next time.”
