McDonald's Plans to Shutter Hundreds of Outlets in Walmart Stores

McDonald's plans to close hundreds of its outlets in Walmart stores by the end of the summer, media reports say. By that time the Chicago fast-food icon will have about 150 locations within the Bentonville, Ark., retailing behemoth's U.S. stores.

That's down from 500 at the start of the year and from an overall peak of about 1,000, The Wall Street Journal reported.

Stand-alone McDonald's locations with drive-throughs proved far more profitable, even before the pandemic, a former McDonald's executive told Dow Jones.

where

I live McDonald's has been giving away free crispy chicken sandwiches at least 3 weeks in a row. they have to be making huge profits to simply give away food.

My buddy separates the men from the boys when something is, "no purchase necessary." He thinks bogo is a ploy, 50% off of a high price. But NPN of course they hope you buy more, but it's still something that not all can do.

I seldom see a customer at these internal food stands

I never knew Walmarts had McD’s inside. Our two Walmarts have Auntie Anne’s Pretzels and I seldom see a customer getting anything. One used to have a Subway; same thing, seldom had a customer.

McDonalds Inside Walmart - who Knew?

I, too, never knew Walmart had McDonalds inside stores. I might go into a Walmart once every year or two. I buy from Walmart's online more often than from in store. It's been years since I ate at a McDonalds.

Domino's and Taco Bell restaurants To replace McD’s

OK, so now it has been reported that the McD’s are to be replaced by Domino's and Taco Bell. I’m not sure, and “yes” my opinion, but that will not be an improvement. I will still shop Walmart as the need arises, but as before just walk by the food area.

Our Walmart closed their McDonalds over a year ago

Our Walmart is about 4 miles from the house and is easy to get to on a 3 mile stretch of a 4 lane limited access highway. The inhouse McDonalds closed well over a year & 1/2 ago. The spot stayed empty a long time. They added a Domino's pizza in part of the area that Mickey D's used to occupy just a couple of months ago.

McDonalds inside Walmarts

If any users know of the removal of a Mcd from inside a Walmart, I would really appreciate a note regarding the removal. This will help me
in keeping the McD file up to date. Thanks in advance.

Yeah

This has been going on for years. The McD/Walmart locations around me closed up many years ago.

Thank goodness I don't have to be lured by the aroma of McD French Fries anymore when I'm getting oil filters.

Director Morgan Spurlock's social experiment in fast-food gastronomy sees him attempting to subsist uniquely on food from the McDonald's menu for an entire month. In the process his weight balloons, his energy level plummets and he experiences all sorts of unexpected and terrifying side effects. He also examines the corporate giant's growing role in the lives of American consumers and explores its methods of indoctrinating young people and its contribution to America's obesity epidemic.

Thanks Mahoney

mahoney--Thanks for keeping the file up to date.

Many Restaurants closed for good...

What saved many fast food places? A drive through. I'm sure many food establishments within stores like Walmart suffered due to the reduced traffic. Might be interesting to know if these were company owned or Franchises. Would imagine many with bank branches had similar issues with reduced traffic and people turning to ATM's or branches with drive throughs.

Thanks for the info

Thanks for the info

In-store restaurants seem to be going away alright

The Ephrata, PA Walmart lost its Subway a while back.

As for McD's in Walmarts, a guy I knew in Houston opened the 1,000th one inside a Walmart several years back. The fanfare included a commemorative t-shirt, which he gave me. I have no idea whether or not that one is still open.

Subway in our Walmart

I read the Subway is going away too. We love their pizza and before Covid-19 we would eat there about once a month just before we shopped for groceries.
