McDonald's, a fast food restaurant chain, is raising the cost of five of its menu items as rising living expenses continue to put a strain on already-struggling households.
It claimed that higher prices for food and energy will result in price increases starting on Wednesday.
For the first time in more than 14 years, the fast food juggernaut raised the price of a cheeseburger last summer.
Globally soaring inflation has not affected McDonald's sales, which increased by more than 12% last year.
According to McDonald's, "affordable prices" are a priority.
"However, our company and our franchisees continue to be impacted, just like many other businesses, by the rise in food and energy prices. ".
According to McDonald's, franchisees determine their own prices, using the following ranges as a guide:
- Mayo Chicken is available for 99p to £1.19.
- From £1.59 to £1.79 for Bacon Mayo Chicken.
- Bacon Double Cheeseburgers range in price from £2.49 to £2.69.
- Price range for a triple cheeseburger is £2.69 to £2.89.
- Drinks with a medium carbonation range from £1.39 to £1.49.
