Also lets keep in mind that when McDonalds started out, they cut their fries and grilled the patties right there. They only started going frozen as they grew larger in order to maintain consistency instead of freshness. Hell, if you go to a McDonalds in some countries, the food is quite good due to more competition over quality instead of speed.
