McDonald's Corp. on Wednesday posted second-quarter revenue and earnings that surpassed Wall Street's expectations amid a strong recovery from the coronavirus pandemic.

The Chicago fast-food giant reported net income of $2.22 billion, or $2.95 a share, for the quarter, up from $483.8 million, or 65 cents a share, a year earlier, when results were dragged down by worldwide closures related to the pandemic.

Excluding items, McDonald's reported an adjusted profit of $2.37 a share for the quarter. well above the $2.11 analysts polled by FactSet, on average, were expecting.

Revenue surged 57% to $5.89 billion, topping the $5.58 billion analysts were looking for, as worldwide comparable sales jumped 40.5%.

On a two-year basis, global comparable sales were up 6.9% in the quarter, marked by gains in all segments.
