The canteen of my company sells mainly spicy food. As I want to cut down on spicy food intake, I often have my lunch outside the company, and the most convenient location is a McDonald’s restaurant attached to a petrol station. (Many people point out that fast food is not good for health, but I believe spicy food is worse.)
While its competitors’ outlets are mostly in shopping malls, McDonald’s has diversified in terms of locations. It has set up many stores at petrol stations. Other than being more convenient to working people like me, there are several other advantages:
- Unlike the restaurants in shopping malls, McDonald’s at petrol stations can be opened 24 hours.
- They can offer drive-through service.
WARNING: Drive through service can be bad for the environment.
