Mc Donald's is Super Sizing Itself!

Call me a news junkie, I read the newspaper (on my iPad) everyday as well as cruise the Internet for good articles when I came across an article about McDonald's. Now I normally don't blog about news pieces because they can be controversial topics and that is not my intention for this blog. However with my posting about Starbucks and there new drink size I got a lot of positive feedback around that so I thought this article could be a great follow up! 
   This time next summer the Olympics will be dominating our TV sets and will be hosted in London. Side Note: They are having quite the spotlight lately between the Royal Wedding, newspaper hacking scandal, and then the Olympics. So while London is preparing for the 9 million tickets to be sold and the mass amounts of people coming from all over the world other people are also gearing up for the big event. 

Anything significant going on there are certain sponsors that dominate the limelight and one of those sponsors is McDonald's. They have some super size plans for their mark in the Olympics. McDonald's plans to build a 2 story mega center that will span 32,290 square feet and host 1,500 seats!! They are expecting to serve 1.75 million meals during the Olympics which runs from July 27 - Aug 12. That is a heck of a lot of Big Macs and Fries! Maybe those people who buy those 1.75 million meals should participate in some physical activity afterwards because that is a heck of a lot of calories that is going to be consumed! Holy Cow! If you're a fast food junkie and plan on checking the Super Size place out after the Olympics you will come up empty handed because they plan on tearing down the place after its all over. 
I found a video that goes further into this story... 

McDonald's Super Size

       Hopefully after they leave McDonald's they don't go to Starbucks and get a Trenta iced beverage.
