McDonald’s will kick off the Summer Olympics in London with a major gesture: Opening its largest restaurant ever.
There will be two stories taking up more than 32,000 square feet. The 1,500 customers that can sit inside and on the balcony will be served by 500 employees. There will be burgers, fries and chicken nuggets, but also porridge at breakfast, wraps and salads, a new fruit juice drink called Fruitizz and sustainably sourced tea and coffee served with local organic milk.
The burger giant is the official restaurant of the Games, which start next month. The Olympic Park mega-eatery, which McDonald's revealed in a preview this week, is one of four the chain will operate during the events.
But none of them will be permanent. McDonald’s will dismantle the locations after six weeks, sending most of the furniture and equipment to be recycled or reused in its other restaurants.
