There are differences in religion, or ethnicity, or simple differences in eating habits. Further, McDonald's is recognizes as an American restaurant and those that have conflicts with Americans do not have positive feelings towards McDonald's. The issues related to cultural conflicts are wide. A restaurant is perceived differently in different cultures. In addition, the menu items mean different in cultures and not finding some familiar items may turn off customers. Further, the prices of the same product have to differ from culture to culture from country to country.
