McDonald's vs. Chipotle: Customer wait times a factor

Janney Capital Markets delivers some common sense commentary on McDonald's (MCD -0.2%) and its recent stumble in the U.S.

Analyst Mark Kalinowski notes the company's vast number of menu items slows down service times and can lead to kitchen confusion and order mishaps.

At one time restaurant analysts chided Chipotle (CMG -1.9%) for its single pipeline approach to customer queues and simple menu, but the chain has bested most rivals in improving comparable-store sales over the last year.
