The History of Spicy Chicken McDeluxe

When McDonald’s opened its door in 1940, the two brothers’ never would have dreamt that it would become an international sensation. Richard and Maurice McDonald started their restaurant in San Bernardino California, selling burgers and soft drinks to people who want to eat as fast as possible.

When businessman Ray Kroc came across the restaurant in 1955, he saw an opportunity to grow the business. Eventually, after a few disagreements and disputes, Ray Kroc bought the restaurant, its concept and the name from the McDonald’s brothers and started turning it into a franchise.

Today, McDonald’s around the world is always looking to put up a new burger menu to suit the locals in whichever region. In 2013, McDonald’s released its first Hot N Spicy McChicken. While it didn’t become a hit in countries like Canada, it continued to gain fans in Southeast Asian countries like Malaysia due to their love of spicy flavours.

Since the Spicy Chicken McDeluxe was released, it has remained on the menu as McDonald’s top favourite burger in the Southeast Asian region. McDonald’s has even recently introduced the Double Spicy Chicken McDeluxe to their faithful fans.
