List Of Countries With McDonald’s, This is a listing of countries with McDonald’s restaurants. McDonald’s is the largest chain of fast food restaurants in the world. The majority of McDonald’s outlets outside of the United States are franchises.

The biggest temporary McDonald’s in the world was opened during 2012 Summer Olympics in London, which had 3,000 square metres (32,000 sq ft). The biggest still standing is probably that at Will Rogers Turnpike.
