Well done.. What i dont get is your conclusion.. Why the McDo'corporates are ok with this ? If it hurts the Franchises.. it will eventually hurt the corporate.. the Franchise value will drop.. the marketing cost will get higher.. etc I mean, i dont get it.. what is the gain for McDo ? Unless.. Taylor secrately give money to high rank McDo corporates..

Thought this might be an informational video, but twenty minutes into the video I am still listening to why he is going to tell me the real reason McDonalds Ice cream machines but never gets to the point at twenty minutes in. Must like to hear himself talk. Waist of time, ever hear of BLUF? Waiting for the real reason is like watching the McDonalds ice cream machine try to work and it fails. I read a self help book once and ten of the twelve chapters in I was still hearing why the author wrote the book and VW we got to the point till last chapter?

Ok, interesting, not surprising, considering how often this has been done. What I don't get, is how does the other fast food joints, using Taylor ice cream makers, not experience the same rate of downtime and failures? What's happening at McDonalds with these machines that's not happening at Wendy's? If it was mentioned in the video it slid right by me.

@ShitpostR I get where your going with this but I bet this relationship implodes before your very eyes. It’s also a classic case of right to repair, modify do with as you wish. The eula’s that were born in the early micro revolution contributed wildly to this mentality. Spend 1500 dollars for a software package you own only to realize upon reading the fine print, you just bought a license to “use”. I love this shit and calling it out for what it is “shit”. These types of predatory practices continue to push open source to the forefront and highlight what poor vendor relationships create. The funny thing here is the franchisee is the victim. It was no sweat off of Corp MCD’s back to continue this relationship with Taylor because it cost them nothing. In this they failed to protect the franchisees which are the bread and butter of how they came to be. My hopes are Taylor fails from this. New business goes elsewhere and Taylor implodes. MCD’s should pay as well. This, is completely unacceptable. Want a line for business ethics? Classic case of it here and the big business schools should make this first semester of ethics 101. Greed incarnate.

I use to work there for years in high school. The machine is never broken they be lying they just don't want to clean the machine everyday you have to drain the rest of the unused soft serve after you turned machine off for the night then you have to put hot water in the machine to and turn it on to wash it in the inside. Then drain the hot water and remaining soft serve out to make sure its cleaned and washed out. Then they replace the parts you suppose to take out to clean that spin the soft serve. Your welcome its a long process and the buckets are heavy cleaning it when your draining machine. Your welcome.

Life's deeper questions, that's what Johnny Harris is after, and I love it. I am not kidding, it's been "broken" so often for me that I've clearly noticed a feeling inside "not again". Only reason it matters of course, is because for $0.99 their soft serve ice cream tastes so darn good. But now Johnny Harris blows my mind with wisdom and next time I hear mcbroken excuses, I'm just gonna let out a big laughter. I do have a follow up question for JH. Regarding those other companies who are getting machines from Taylor: 1. What is the model # received by those companies? 2. Do their machine models provide transparent output? 3. Maybe I missed it, but why Taylor has a different deal with McDonald's than others? I didn't get that McDonald's and Taylor have same parents or such.

This makes me think of printers in the olden days, something went wrong? You got a red light, and the printer said. "Something is wrong." Now, you get a red light, and the printer tells you where the problem is, and what it is. You push the button and it tells, and shows you what to do on the screen. You follow the steps and most of the time that is it! A machine like this should have like a 10" screen, main menu where the user can just do one tap to do most tasks. The screen should stay on during regular cleaning to go through the steps and remind the user about vital steps in the process. The most common problems should all be detectable by the machine and easy to follow instructions just pop up on the screen.

Two things I can think of that are wrong with this. Number one, in comparing McD's ice cream machine with other companies - how many drinks/treats are sold in each location? McD's is one of the most popular places to get your goodies - so output could make a big difference. The second thing is, and you stated this in your video, but appear to actually ignore the fact - most ice cream machines are not broken - they are being cleaned. I worked at a McD's for 5 years and not once was the machine ever broken - but it was cleaned on a regular schedule. Moral of the story is: You can spin anything to fit your narrative.
