Weiwei drawing more crowds to McDonald at Taiwan

In Economics, the theory of ‘Consumer surplus’ explains - the difference between the maximum price a consumer is willing to pay and the actual price they do pay. If a consumer would be willing to pay more than the current asking price, then they are getting more benefit from the purchased product than they initially paid.  Often in Consumer products or in places likes eateries, a good [looking or otherwise but pleasant servicing] sales person can coerce one into purchasing and can also bring about loyalty to that particular shop or establishment. 

The McDonald's Corporation is the World's largest chain of hamburger fast food restaurants, serving around 68 million customers daily in 119 countries. Headquartered in the United States, the company began in 1940 as a barbecue restaurant operated by Richard and Maurice McDonald.  A McDonald's restaurant is operated by either a franchisee, an affiliate, or the actual corporation itself. 

Sometime back, Mcdonald’s Pune outlet was in news due to a reported outrageous incident of pushing out a child by the employees as it stood in a line along with a woman when the child came to buy a drink.  It was widely circulated in the social media stating that the woman who accidentally saw that,  purchased a drink and gave it to the child outside. She uploaded a picture of the child and the bill item on her Facebook account.
