The La Flame effect seems to be eating McDonald’s out of house and home.
On Wednesday ( Sept. 16), McDonald’s confirmed they were experiencing shortages of Travis Scott meal supplies to Business Insider. This report comes after several Travis fans took to Twitter to rant about their local McDonald’s had running out of the Travis Scott Meal. The franchise is apparently running low on supplies used to make the meal, which features a Quarter Pounder with cheese and bacon, fries, BBQ sauce, and a Sprite as a combo.
In a statement from McDonald’s, the company confirms their difficulty to keep up with the demand.
“It’s been so lit, some of our restaurants have temporarily sold out of some of the ingredients in the meal,” McDonald’s added. “We’re working closely with our suppliers, distributors, and franchisees to resupply impacted restaurants as quickly as possible. Stay tuned and don’t worry, we’ve got more surprises from Cactus Jack coming soon.”
While McDonald’s is not currently looking to end its partnership with the XXL Freshman, moving forward on Sept. 22, in order to get a taste of the Travis Scott Meal for $6, the feast will have to be ordered through the McDonald’s app.
Along with changes to the ordering process, sources also suggest to combat the shortage, Micky D’s will be temporarily controlling the supply of some ingredients like the Quarter Pounder fresh beef, bacon, slivered onions, and shredded lettuce. More locations are expected to run out of ingredients in the coming days if the hype continues.
The Travis Scott combo was launched on Sept. 8 and is expected to run until Oct. 4. Since the release, Travis has dropped two merchandise capsule with items selling between $48 to $110.
