McDonald’s to open its largest eatery at Olympics

McDonald’s plans to launch its largest ever restaurant on the site of the main London 2012 Olympic site.


The company, which is a global partner of the International Olympic Committee, plans to open a two-storey, 3,000 square metre, diner.

It will be one of four McDonald’s restaurants on the Olympic site.

Red or Dead founder Wayne Hemingway is working on an environmentally sustainable new uniform for McDonald’s staff. An early version of the uniform will be first seen on the Olympics site.

The company is keen to push its CSR credentials and its latest television campaign highlights the company’s community involvement, environmental initiatives and its track record in “people development”.

McDonald’s is set to unveil more details of its Olympics-based activity later today (20 July).
