"We took the groundbreaking step of removing all plastic toys from our King Jr. Meals. As much as we wanted to say, go, go, go, let's do this next week, it couldn't have worked like that. But when we got everyone around the table, when we really explained what we were trying to do, and what the benefit would be, everyone was hugely supportive. It just needed to take time. And it needed to be understood that this was not a marketing campaign, this was a whole business campaign, and we need to all really get behind it if we were going to make it work. And we did."
