McDonalds is coming

Post by kieronf » June 22nd, 2022, 4:08 pm

For those that haven't read the story, McDonalds have been given permission to open a restaurant on the Mahon poligon, directly opposite Mercadona, next to the gun club. Work has to start within six months and has to be completed within two years.
It seems that this has been a long process for McD but they have finally won the local authorities over. Not my thing, but I'm sure all those visitors who can't live without a Trebor mint or some Shreddies for the kids for seven days will love it.

There's been a Burger King at each end of the island for years so I don't see what the fuss is about. Just because its there people don't have to go there to eat.

If it’s on the poligono, I suspect it’s aiming at locals. Better there than in a tourist area.

It'll be a magnet for pre-flight fill-ups and Mercadona tourist shoppers as well as the workers on the poligono. Good luck to them but I suspect this s the first of a few similar 'restaurants'.

Hope the council have plenty of litter bins in the area, or you will be inundated with loads of Ravens and Pigeons!

Given the strict licensing system on the island I can only imagine that litter, noise and nuisance will result in it being shut down asap.

For those that may be interested in this sort of thin - progress has been extremely rapid. In no time at all the site was cleared and now the steel superstructure has been erected and the walls are almost complete - fatty burgers could be on the menu in no time at all.

That's the power of McDonald's when they start the ball rolling .
..
I know one person who will not be drawn into its commercialism.

No doubt it will be widely advertised on radio ,TV , press and all 🙄
