See pictures - McDonalds’ off to a great start with Naas' first 24-hour drive through in Naas

McDonalds is said to have had a great start in Naas, having just opened Naas' first 24-hour drive through yesterday.

Opened at Monread Shopping Centre in the town, the unit has  created much employment in its midst. McDonald's HQ remained tight-lipped on figures, though a clearer picture is likely to emerge closer to the official launch date on 14th November.

Fun facts re McDonalds:

  • 75 McDonalds’ burgers are sold every second globally!
  • McDonalds’ Big Mac is used as an economic index to compare purchasing power between currencies and countries.
  • It takes 7 hours (yes, really) to burn off a Big Mac and super sized fries and Coke.
  • 75 per cent of the sesame seeds in Mexico end up on McDonalds’ burger buns.
  • McDonalds’ originally sold hot dogs before switching to the more popular burger.

  • Staff won’t serve people in the drive through on horseback, allegedly! We may test this one out!! Giddy up Tayto!
