McDdonald's looks overseas for profits
SEATTLE, WASHINGTON- McDonald's sales were down in the U.S. last month and the company relied on overseas outlets for profit.
Sales in May dropped 2% in the U.S. but rose about the same in Europe. That's not enough to make it a wash since McDonald's says overall global sales are down.
The company blames fewer customers and more competition.
McDonald's is now testing new menu items in hopes of luring customers back. They include longer breakfast hours, custom burgers and using dishes with kale and spinach.
