Fast-Food Chains in Brussels Shut Down Following Attacks: Chartby
Tuesday’s deadly attacks in Brussels are prompting some restaurant chains to temporarily shut locations in the Belgian capital. Starbucks Corp. said all of its 15 cafes in Belgium are closed until further notice. Domino’s Pizza Inc. has more than 30 shops and closed all of its Brussels locations. But McDonald’s Corp., which has about 74 restaurants in the country, said only one of its stores there is closed. Pizza Hut, owned by Yum! Brands Inc., has more than 100 locations in Belgium. The company hasn’t said if it has shut any restaurants. Last year, both Starbucks and McDonald’s said terrorist attacks in Paris curbed consumer and tourist activity, hurting sales.
