#1: Jamaica immune from McDonald's

Posted on 2006-07-14 13:15:28 by GB

I stumbled on the article below, which lists countries where McDonald's
is not present, and JAMAICA is Mc-free!!!! Big up to JA. If only they
could get rid of other imperialistic Babylonian fast food companies
like KFC...

You can find a Big Mac on every continent but one -- Antarctica. You
can get a Maharaja Mac in India, a Croque McDo in France, a McFiesta in
Guatemala, and Kosher beef in Israel. While it seems like the golden
arches are everywhere, 98 countries aren't "lovin' it."
According to the corporate web site, Mickey D's has restaurants in 119
countries. But Ronald and pals don't name each country. Wikipedia lists
97 countries with franchises and notes that McDonald's may count "many
non-sovereign territories" as different countries.

So where can't you get a Happy Meal? As this map shows, most of Africa
and Central Asia is short on super-sized fries. We compared the
countries that have McD franchises to the U.S. State Department's list
of independent states to compile this list of places that don't
currently have a McDonald's:

Afghanistan, Albania, Algeria, Angola, Antigua and Barbuda, Armenia,
Bangladesh, Barbados, Belize, Benin, Bhutan, Bolivia, Bosnia and
Herzegovina, Botswana, Burkina Faso, Burma, Burundi, Cambodia,
Cameroon, Cape Verde, Central African Republic, Chad, Comoros, Republic
of the Congo, Democratic Republic of the Congo, C=F4te d'Ivoire,
Djibouti, Dominica, East Timor, Equatorial Guinea, Eritrea, Ethiopia,
the Federated States of Micronesia, Gabon, Gambia, the Ghana, Grenada,
Guinea, Guinea-Bissau, Guyana, Haiti, the Holy See, Iran, Iraq,
Jamaica, Kazakhstan, Kenya, Kiribati, Kyrgyzstan, Laos, Lesotho,
Liberia, Libya, Madagascar, Malawi, Maldives, Mali, the Marshall
Islands, Mauritania, Mongolia, Montenegro, Mozambique, Namibia, Nauru,
Nepal, Niger, Nigeria, North Korea, Palau, Papua New Guinea, Rwanda,
Saint Kitts and Nevis, Saint Lucia, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines,
Sao Tome and Principe, Senegal, Seychelles, Sierra Leone, Solomon
Islands, Somalia, Sudan, Swaziland, Syria, Tajikistan, Tanzania, Togo,
Tonga, Trinidad and Tobago, Tunisia, Turkmenistan, Tuvalu, Uganda,
Uzbekistan, Vanuatu, Vietnam, Yemen, Zambia, and Zimbabwe.

A few years back I was on a plane from Negril to Kingston and was talking to a
guy who worked for McDonald's in a management capacity in Jamaica. So, I was
surprised to see this post. Turns out McDonald's just exited the island within
the last year:

McDonald's leaving Jamaica

McDonald's, the American fast-food giant which came to Jamaica a decade ago,
will be closing its eight restaurants and exit the local market, having failed
to find a suitable franchisee for the operation here.

Four of the restaurants are located in Kingston, while the others, including a
mobile unit in St Ann's Bay, are in rural towns.

That's interesting. I think Burger King is still there, right?

Yeah, Burger King is there along with Pizza Hut and KFC.

I like the Jamaican &quot;Island Grill&quot; for fast food.

You can get a whole roasted fish in foil there.

And, everywhere in the Caribbean the people love the greasy stuff
like french fries and fried chicken.
