McDonald’s comes to La Romaine
Arcos Dorados, the largest operator of McDonald’s restaurants in Latin America and the Caribbean, has opened its newest location in T&T at Gulf View, La Romaine. The restaurant, which opened Friday, includes all of the features that customers have come to appreciate, including Auto Mac, McDonald’s quick and convenient drive-through service, a McCafé with separate counter, and a PlayPlace, a fun and safe play environment for children. The restaurant will host birthday services with hostesses and also offer Wi-Fi service for guests. “When Arcos Dorados first came to T&T we made a commitment to invest in this country and its people,” said Jameela Mohammed-Ali, Arcos Dorados market manager for T&T. “As the 20th market of Arcos Dorados in Caribbean and Latin America, Trinidad is especially significant to the company and we have done our utmost to meet the wants and needs of our customers, provide opportunities for local business and employment, and be an all-around good neighbour,” she added.
McDonald’s Gulf View is Arcos Dorados’ fourth restaurant in Trinidad, bringing the atmosphere, service and menu including halal-certified products to the south, that have been enjoyed by guests at their The Falls at West Mall, Grand Bazaar and Cipriani Boulevard restaurants for two years. In that time McDonald’s has established a strong reputation as not only a leading local quick-service restaurant, but as a good corporate citizen and employer, offering quality job opportunities to hundreds of nationals. The new restaurant brings 100 new employment opportunities for managers and crew positions. “McDonald’s Gulf View is the latest sign of our ongoing commitment. We are very pleased to have reached this milestone and very grateful for the warm reception from T&T,” she said. “More people eat out on a daily basis and the presence of a McDonald’s restaurant in La Romaine will provide a wider choice of meals for residents in the south. We hope the communities from the south will enjoy the family-friendly experience and quality food that our restaurant has to offer.” For the health and nutrition-focused, the new restaurant includes a menu board with calorie information for all items, a special 600-calorie menu, reduced sodium in the ingredients of several menu items and the 600-calorie Happy Meal, which contains a smaller portion of fries and a seasonal fruit.
