    sensitive to the market. McDonalds competes with all the other major fast food franchisors for locations and franchisees. The franchise agreement offered by McDonalds has to be competitive with the other fast food providers or franchisees won't sign up with them.

    I have no idea what the franchise agreements look like in Australia, or how they compare to the US. It's possible the franchise operators have a more favorable deal in Australia to take into account their higher labor costs. I know that in the US those cities that have higher minimum wage laws those costs are passed through in higher prices than the national norms. You will hear that in the commercials for these fast food companies, that some areas don't participate in national pricing.
