McDonald's New Model Adapts for All Cultures

McDonald's (NYSE: MCD  ) has decided to open two vegetarian restaurants in India next year to add to its already expanding market in that region. This move demonstrates the company's unwavering ability to adapt in different markets, primarily markets such as India, where McDonald's doesn't sell pork or beef. India, which is the world's second largest country by population, offers the potential for an enormous payoff for companies such as McDonald's, Starbucks (NASDAQ: SBUX  ) , PepsiCo (NYSE: PEP  ) , Coca-Cola (NYSE: KO  ) , and Yum! Brands (NYSE: YUM  ) , all of which have made big bets on the country's rapidly swelling middle class. See more in the following video.

Its impeccable ability to expand and adapt is the reason McDonald's has been named one of our 3 American Companies Set to Dominate the World. Click here to read about the other two amazing companies that made the cut.
