McDonald's is bringing back the McRib this year, like they do around this time every year. But this year it's going nationwide. For the past eight years, they've only brought it back to some of their stores, not all of 'em.
They're scheduled to hit all 14,400 McDonald's stores nationwide exactly one month from today.
