McDonald’s says demand for Travis Scott meal spurring burger shortages

McDonald's Travis Scott Burger Gets Boost From TikTok Trend - Eater

Cactus Jack sent his fans to McDonald’s, and more showed up to order the Travis Scott Meal than anticipated.

A week after the rapper and fast-food chain’s collaboration meal debuted nationwide, some restaurants are running short on key ingredients including Quarter Pounder beef, bacon, slivered onions and shredded lettuce, according to a McDonald’s memo obtained by USA TODAY on Tuesday.

“We’ve created a program that’s so compelling to our customers that it’s stretching our world-class supply chain; and if demand continues at these levels, more restaurants will break supply,” McDonald’s said in the memo sent to employees, owners and operators across the country.

The $6 collab meal, which features a Quarter Pounder with Cheese, bacon and lettuce, a medium order of fries with BBQ sauce and a Sprite, was scheduled to be available through Oct. 4.
