Maccy D’s (McDonald’s nickname)

"Maccy D’s” is a popular nickname for McDonald’s fast food restaurants in the United Kingdom. “Maccy Ds” was posted on the newsgroup uk.singles on June 17, 1996.

McDonald’s has also been called “Mickey D’s” and “McDo” (mostly in French-speaking countries). Derogatory nicknames include “Rotten Ronnie’s” (after the Ronald McDonald clown) and “McNasty’s.”

1. (Britain, slang) McDonald’s.

Wikipedia: McDonald’s
McDonald’s Corporation is an American fast food company, founded in 1940 as a restaurant operated by Richard and Maurice McDonald, in San Bernardino, California, United States. They rechristened their business as a hamburger stand, and later turned the company into a franchise, with the Golden Arches logo being introduced in 1953 at a location in Phoenix, Arizona. In 1955, Ray Kroc, a businessman, joined the company as a franchise agent and proceeded to purchase the chain from the McDonald brothers. McDonald’s had its original headquarters in Oak Brook, Illinois, but moved its global headquarters to Chicago in early 2018.

McDonald’s is the world’s largest restaurant chain by revenue, serving over 69 million customers daily in over 100 countries[9] across 37,855 outlets as of 2018.

I think they rate about the same - but Maccy Ds are usually in a built-up area so you can’t really be exiled there.

McDonald’s to trademark slang-brand ‘Maccy D’s’
LONDON - McDonald’s has applied to the Intellectual Property Office to register its popular slang name, ‘Maccy D’s’, as a trademark.

The term has been used widely in the UK for many years when referring to the fast-food chain, but has not previously been officially adopted by McDonald’s itself.
