Melilla's first-ever McDonald's opens

FAST food chain McDonald's has opened its first branch in history in the Spanish-owned city-province of Melilla on the northern Moroccan coast.

The brand-new burger bar is based on the Rafael Ginel seafront esplanade and currently has 38 employees, expected to rise to 50 once January is out.

Franchise-holder Francisco Llamas says residents have been clamouring for a McDonald's for many years, since their nearest one was previously either in another country or across the sea.

The branch says its priorities are offering flexible and quality employment with training and development assured, and investing in young adults just getting started in the job market.

McDonald's in Spain currently has 490 branches with 24,000 employees, and plans to open another 100 across the country by the end of 2017, creating a further 3,000 jobs.

The Melilla branch has an outside dining area over half the size of the interior, plus 153 parking spaces, playground activities in the Ronald McDonald Gym Club, facilities for children's birthday parties, and a 24-hour drive-in order service.
