Which hot dog company will win the new season of The Biggest Loser?
HOT DOG BUSSINESS Owners of the largest fast food restaurant chain in the country are gearing up to open a new restaurant in Las Vegas and opening a second location in the San Diego area, the latest sign of a shift in the fast food industry.
In an interview with Business Insider on Wednesday, John Mackey, the CEO of Burger King Corp., which owns McDonald’s Corp., Burger King’s parent company, said that he was considering opening a new fast food chain in Nevada, but the plans were still being finalized.
McDonald’s said in a statement on Wednesday that it has “committed to supporting local communities, and we are committed to doing so through the establishment of a new franchisee in Las Vegas, Nevada, in the coming months.”
Burger King also announced that it would be opening a McDonald’s location in Albuquerque, New Mexico, in early 2019, and plans to open another location in Las Cienegas in 2020.
McDonalds said in an interview on Wednesday it has a long history of investing in local communities and will continue to do so.
“We are committed in supporting local businesses and communities, including our hometown, New York City, as we grow and invest in new locations,” McDonald’s said.
“We also believe in the value of local food and we have been an enthusiastic partner in the communities that we have opened across the country.
We will continue our commitment to supporting our local communities with local restaurants and expanding our local presence to support our customers.”
Bururger King said it will open its second location this fall in Las Banderas, California, a town that is a hub for fast food workers and also hosts the nation’s largest meatpacking plant.
Burger Kings plans to expand the chain’s presence in California to 10 additional locations by 2022.
