Davey Boy 2.0 Posted August 1, 2014 Report Share Posted August 1, 2014 In a move industry insiders are calling â€œsurprisingâ€, McDonaldâ€™s has agreed that a new location set to open in Ottawaâ€™s Westboro neighbourhood will feature a unique twist on the companyâ€™s world famous logo. The fabled Golden Arches will be flipped upside down to placate the initial outcry against the proposed move. A spokesman for the company, Dale Whitchakokou, said in a statement â€œMcDonaldâ€™s corporation feels that itâ€™s widespread brand recognition can be tweaked in this case in order help fit in to the neighbourhoodâ€™s overall feel and to promote a sense of communityâ€. Westboro council will also have a hand in choosing the restaurantâ€™s dÃ©cor, both in the interior and exterior and a percentage of the franchiseâ€™s profits will be donated to help local youths gain acceptance into private arts colleges. The restaurant is slated to open in 2015. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
