Why is McDonald's Ice Cream Make Broken
Have you ever been to a McDonald’s for a McFlurry, soft serve cone or sundae and found out that their machine was broken? Well, there may be a simple reason for this, and it’s not because of the employees at that particular location. One previous theory said it was due to a tedious cleaning cycle that can last hours, or to be more specific, an 11-step process that includes using a sanitizer/warm water mix to clean seven removable parts. Read more for a video that explains in detail why these machines are always broken.

The newest theory is due to food equipment supplier Taylor who has an exclusive contract with McDonald’s for C602 ice cream machines. At $18,000 USD, these aren’t cheap, and each location is required to sign a maintenance contract and technical support for thousands more. Since nobody except for Taylor technicians knows how these work, whenever something goes wrong, it may take hours, or even days, before someone arrives to fix the issue.
