Reuters exclusively reports McDonald’s faces Italian antitrust probe into franchise terms

Reuters exclusively reported that Italy’s antitrust authority AGCM will investigate McDonald’s terms and conditions in its agreements with franchise operators following several complaints. The AGCM move could put the U.S. fast-food chain at risk of a fine of as much as 10% of its global turnover if it is found guilty of breaching Italian antitrust rules.
