McDonald’s Forced out of City Center

McDonald’s celebrates this year 30 years in Norway, but it will not be a great jubilee for the fast food chain, writes Dagens Næringsliv.

It will probably put down three of its five most important restaurants in the city center. Building owners do not want McDonald’s there.

– McDonald’s on the shore of Aker Brygge is not good enough. It is an honest cause. It is a great location for them, but we want to use the location for something else, says CEO Olav Line from the real estate company, Norwegian Property, which owns much of Aker Brygge.

During the renovation of the building, Norwegian Property has chosen to break the lease with McDonald’s two years before it runs out.

McDonald’s has for several years offered food to slightly lower price if you take it out. This has led to increased litter in areas outside the restaurants. Nearby shops, restaurants and other tenants are unhappy about the situation. This also leads to complains about the store in Oslo Central Station and the contract will not be renewed.

Norway’s first McDonald’s is located on the side street of Karl Johans, Nedre Slottsgate. Now it is uncertain whether it will continue there.

This place is also the highest grossing restaurant in Norway, and therefore among the most important to keep. McDonald’s is currently in dialogue with the landlord.
