Fast Food World

Where in the World There Are No McDonald’s

As of the end of March, McDonald’s (MCD) had 34,565 restaurants in 119 countries and territories. On Monday the chain announced plans to open its first restaurant in Vietnam in 2014 in Ho Chi Minh City, which would expand the list to 120. Impressive, but that still leaves about half of the 196 independent countries in the world without a McDonald’s. You can’t get a Big Mac in Iceland, Jamaica, or Nepal; most of Africa and the politically unstable parts of the Middle East have yet to get a Golden Arches.
