Sustainable Restaurants

McDonald’s South Africa is changing the way it builds its restaurants and has embarked on rolling out sustainable restaurants across the country.

“Not only have we lived history here in South Africa for the past 18 years, we will continue to create it. Like drive thru, hand held breakfast, 24/7 and McCafé™. McDonald’s will continue to improve, evolve and pioneer” says Greg Solomon, McDonald’s South Africa’s Managing Director. The new restaurants are built using light gauge steel and energy efficient cladding and insulation systems, which mean the restaurants, cool down and warm up faster.
