World's Largest McDonalds Built For London Olympics

largest-mcdonalds.jpg

The world's largest McDonald's restaurant is being for the London Olympics this summer, with a seating capacity of over 1,500. No word if McDonald's thought 'build the largest restaurant' was going to be a medal event this year.

With 1,500 seats and spanning about half the length of a football field, the fast-food restaurant is planning on selling about 50,000 Big Macs, 100,000 orders of french fries and 30,000 milkshakes [during the Olympics]. To serve all this up, McDonald's is looking to have more than 450 people on staff.


McDonald's has a long-standing relationship with the Olympics games -- this year will be the ninth year the chain has been the Olympics official restaurant and is the only restaurant feeding athletes, the paper reported.

Oh, McDonald's has a long-standing relationship with the Olympics alright -- making sure young athletes never make it to them! But seriously, is McDonald's really the only restaurant feeding athletes during the Olympics? You better bring your own damn food if they are. Because otherwise you know who's gonna win? NOBODY.

Thanks to Evil Ares, who's so evil he filled the shake machine with laxatives.

    Whut a dump. It looks like a dark-age'rs nightmare. Did they have to cut down half of Sherwood Forest to get the lumber ? Total ugly. Squared.

    Wow... what a really good idea /sarcasm.
    When the hoards of Olympic viewers are done and out of London... where does that leave this gargantuan McDonalds? Empty, with barely any customers, and a skeleton crew staff.

    It looks like a college for the obese. Probably have classes like Psychology: Gherkin or no Gherkin?

  • Makes me proud.

    This has to be the saddest(also most ironic) thing i have ever read in the history of anything.

    The whole "McDonalds is the official restaurant of the Olympics" devalues the concept of both a sporting and cultural Olympiad methinks. Wouldn't it be far better to do away with this relationship and either replace them with a healthier chain or go the cultural route and pick some local cuisine.

    Oh wait, that wouldn't happen because it wouldn't make money for the organisers would it. Screw the message of peace and international cooperation, it's got to be profitable.

    This can only mean they are going to reenact the monthy pythons olympics. I wonder which is going to be the only drink served to the athletes..  guinness.. ?
