PHILADELPHIA, Dec. 13, 2012

PHILADELPHIA, Dec. 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --Beginning tomorrow, the legendary
McRib sandwich will once again be available at participating McDonald's
Restaurants of the Greater Philadelphia Region. Made with specially selected
pork cuts supplied exclusively from the United States, the McRib sandwich's
unforgettable taste comes from the combination of boneless pork with
fresh-slivered onions, dill pickle slices and McDonald's signature McRib sauce
on a toasted, golden-brown home-style bun.

Since its introduction 30 years ago, the combination of the McRib sandwich's
signature barbeque sauce and limited availability has led customers to perform
extraordinary feats for a taste of the elusive sandwich. For residents of the
Greater Philadelphia Region, however, a short trip to their local McDonald's
is all that stands between them and the opportunity to enjoy the ultimate pork
sandwich.

"We're excited to bring back the McRib to our loyal customers," said John
Durante, President, Phil-Ad-Mac Owner/Operator Association. "The sandwich will
only be available for a limited time, so whether you're a McRib enthusiast or
trying the sandwich for the first time, be sure to get it before it's gone."

To celebrate the return of the McRib, the "McRib Mania" launch party will be
held at Midnight on December 14 at the Broad & Diamond Streets McDonald's
located near the campus of Temple University in Philadelphia. Event attendees
in need of a final exam study break or late night adventure will be able to
sample the legendary sandwich and receive great giveaways and coupons for a
free McRib.
