McDonalds is taking over the world. Not only are they making moves on Balmoral and Kaikoura than they are opening a restaurant in the Louvre Museum next month.

The 1,142nd McDonalds in France will open just metres inside the main entrance as a celebration of its 3oth birthday.

An art historian working at the museum stated:

“This is the pinnacle of exhausting consumerism, deficient gastronomy and very unpleasant odours in the context of a museum…”

I couldn’t have put it better myself, and so I wont.

McDonalds joins a Starbucks that opened near the Right Bank entrance to the Louvre in 2008.

The restaurant chain in France has enjoyed the biggest growth outside the USA. According to the chain the fast food group opened 30 new outlets last year in France and welcomed 450 million customers – up 11 per cent on the previous year.
