Is Mc'Donalds' Food Really More Expensive in Hawaii?

I've heard this is true because of import tax, but is Mc'donalds' food more expensive than the 48 bordering states' prices??

    It is higher because of taxes, and also because of transportation costs.

    Yeah - if their workers are making similar wages to those in the 48 contiguous states, then Hawai'ian stores have to charge more to cover product transportation costs and such.

    YES! I just got back from Maui, and while we didn't eat a McDonald's we ate at other fast food restaurants and at Carl's Jr. we paid about $9 for EACH meal... other fast food chains were about the same.

    yes, it does cost more. because my cousin who is a flight attendent whose husband is a pilot, who has a nephew who is in the surfboard business, who lives in hawaii, has a friend, whose girlfriend, whose friend works at burger king which is next to mcdonalds and i also got an answer from the previous people who answered your question before i did.

    Source(s): the other people posted before me, to be honest, quite frankly.
