Referring to the McDonald's franchise system, it's said they pay a percentage of the earnings as a fee. That is incorrect. They pay a percentage of the sales. Earnings are net profit after all expenses are deducted from sales. See more »

This is really good
20 April 2020 | by Bryan-See all my reviews

I don't even like documentaries but this was fascinating. I found the story of Coca Cola the most interesting. That guy got shafted big time. I would normally give something this good a higher rating but I can't ever see myself wanting to watch it again.
