A 32-bit subnet mask should solve the problem ...

But how's he going to control what subnet mask McDonalds issue to their

Nope, that was a badly put example.

Mcdonalds would be giving each user a publicly allocated IP address. No
NAT and hence 32-bit mask.

I'm (cheapskate) using NAT from an single issued public IP address, and
trying to fit multiple users to that. So multiple subnets with a 30-bit
mask as I'll need the broadcast IP as well as the host/client.

(If I've understood this right..)
