Never heard of them, but I also agree with Capt.. I like the McDonald's scheme. Much better than the ones around here.

They do most of the deliverying for McDonalds here on the western side of the states, not sure about the midwest and the east however.

Martin Brower seems to take care of the east coast distribution for McDonalds. I believe they handle the southeast and northeast as well. They have a nice Livery in my opinion  :-D

Seems like the last month or so M-B has been doing the Mickey D's work here in NJ which was formerly done by Metroplex.

Interesting to hear about these changes of distributors.  "Mickey D's" is known for having long-term relationships with their suppliers.
