We visited McDonald's global headquarters in Oak Brook, Ill., and the company gave us a peek inside its test kitchen.
Tucked within the walls of the Campus Office Building, the Culinary Center seems to be in a peculiar place. It's surrounded by endless cubicles and corporate-folk.
But inside the kitchen, there's serious work being done.
"It's not just chefs playing in the kitchen," said Chef Jessica Foust, a nutrition and culinary manager at the test kitchen.
Every menu item takes years of planning to develop and organize. Different countries, screening, volume -- it's quite the effort, she said.
So, what's it look like in there? See for yourself.
Disclosure: McDonald's provided travel and accommodations for the trip.
