Fastfood giant McDonald’s wants to open more stores in Mindanao’s “growth areas,” an official of the Philippine franchise holder said after opening its fourth outlet in this city.
“We feel that we still need to establish more stores [in Mindanao and] we are grabbing every opportunity that comes,” said Luke T. Tan, director for real estate, asset management and franchising of Golden Arches Development Corp.
Mr. Tan visited Cagayan de Oro at the weekend to open the fourth McDonald’s store here, located at the SM City Cagayan de Oro shopping mall. The SM mall has been operating for seven years without a McDonald’s outlet.
