From SoCal to Serbia, McDonalds Rich in Calories and Cool Design
This may earn me a Big Mac thrown in my face, but you have to give McDonald’s credit for cool design. The tired cookie cutter design with sloped roofs has long been passé along with the bland menu. Whatever you may think about McDonald’s menu makeover, more of its restaurants are now chic--compared to the institutional Barbie plastic that in the past made McDonald’s more of a burger prison than a place to hang out. Franchisees may balk at the cost of the makeover, and Mickey D’s must do more to convince dubious customers that is menu is more family and artery friendly, at least the outlets have more personality. From Hacienda Heights, California (pictured above, click to expand) to Belgrade, Serbia (below), the Golden Arches are not a bad place to spend a few minutes to duck the rain or use the loo--or the Wi-Fi. The interiors even match the salads (if you want a healthful meal, do not go overboard on the dressing!).
