McDonald’s and Burger King increase investments, while Wendy’s and KFC tighten the belt.


While it was Burger King that most substantially increased its investment in 2007, McDonald’s is still far and away the big-spender in the Hispanic market among other fast food restaurants. This year, its Hispanic ad-spend flirted with the million dollar mark. The company’s biggest single spends were in magazines: Vista and Hispanic Magazine; It increased its spend in El Vocero de Puerto Rico, while decreasing its Vista investment.

Meanwhile Wendy’s and KFC both decreased their spends compared to 2006, with KFC dropping their investment by over half.

In terms of which print properties fast food chains favor, it varies, although El Vocero de Puerto Rico clearly had a big year in 2007, garnering the most investment from three of the top-four spenders. El Nuevo Dia was also ubiquitous in the restaurants’ media plans.
