Could An American Fast Food Burger Chain Open In North Korea?

Fast FoodA summit between Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un might be on again for June 12 in Singapore.

At the summit, might Trump convince the North Koreans to give up their nukes? It’s possible, but Grub Street points out that “as “a consolation prize“, the isolated country might allow an American fast food burger chain to open in Pyongchang!

The info is based on CIA report which NBC News obtained.

It isn’t known which US fast food chain could potentially open in North Korea. Due to President Trump’s love for McDonald’s, I think we’d all assume that the Golden Arches would be the one.

Grub Street writes that “Kim apparently thinks the Trump administration will see this concession- that is, welcoming the first U.S. fast food chain as a show of goodwill.”

I find it hard to believe that McDonald’s or any other fast food chain could play an important role in world peace but then again, in this crazy political climate, you never know!

  1. Well we all know you love McDonald’s and Trump so…. fascinating post for you I guess.

    USA USA… blah blah.

    Ps why do you travel outside of the US? Actually maybe you don’t, that’s cool then.

  2. Who thinks McDonald’s would actually want to open in North Korea. There is no supply chain. Stuff would have to be shipped from South Korea. There is no open labor market.

    In terms of what they eat, KFC or Jersey Mike’s probably fit the local tastes better.

  3. Andy- I’m glad that you know me so well… Yes, we love trying McD’s when we travel. My politics is none of your business- I think both candidates the last time around were pretty bad…

    “Ps why do you travel outside of the US? Actually maybe you don’t, that’s cool then.”
    PS- Please make some sense and take your trolling elsewhere.

    TedC- ???

    derek- Regardless of what might fit better, the article mentioned a burger chain. The obvious guess would be McD’s.
