Burger Giant McDonald’s has reported an uplift in sales for May, with both the US and Europe performing well.

Overall, the company’s comparable sales increased 2.6% in May, while system-wide sales for the month increased 3.6%, or 5.2% in constant currencies.

Sales in the US rose 2.4% last month as a result of strong purchasing of breakfast, chicken meals and everyday value products.

In Europe, sales were up 2%, with Russia and the UK driving growth with premium burgers and speciality menu options. In contrast, Germany and France returned negative performances.

Sales for Asia/Pacific, the Middle East and Africa (APMEA) were up 0.9%, with good performance in most markets offset by negative results in China as a result of the bird flu outbreak.
