McDonald's same-store sales up 5 percent

June 8, 2009 5:37:21 AM PDT
McDonald's says its same-store sales climbed 5.1 percent in May, as the hamburger chain continued to prosper from budget-conscious consumers. The Oak Brook, Ill.-based company says U.S. same-store sales climbed 2.8 percent, helped by classic menu items and its new McCafe espresso-based coffees. European same-store sales surged 7.6 percent, while same-store sales for Asia Pacific, the Middle East and Africa rose 6.4 percent.

Same-store sales, or sales at stores open at least a year, are a key indicator of retailer performance because they measure growth at existing stores rather than newly opened ones.
