I didn't get the meaning of "as rivals muscle in on burger market".
Minha sugestão:

O novo presidente da companhia, Steve Easterbrook divulgará um plano de recuperação para trazer de volta os clientes perdidos e os lucros enquanto os concorrentes tentam tomar o mercado de hambúguer.


Até mais!

Pensei em "enquanto seus rivais entram no mercado/entram no mercado à força/se impõem no mercado de hambúrgueres.

I would go for a different approach. "Muscle" could mean make one´s way by force, so "muscle on" to me would mean "enquanto os concorrentes continuam a brigar/continuam na briga".
So, the item goes on by showing why McDonald´s is an "outlier" of sorts, it stands out, but then at the bottom of the article it shows how competitors go, their weaknessess and strenghts.
