McDonald’s is struggling to turn around its business and has reported 11 straight months of declining global comparable- store sales.

Easterbrook, who took the helm in March, announced a turnaround plan earlier this month that includes leadership changes, cost cutting and returning cash to shareholders. The company also is trying to trim its bloated menu and speed kitchen operations.
