McDonald’s closed 175 stores today.

I had an idea many, many years ago, back when I was a vegetarian, that McDonald’s stores would eventually begin to close. My thought was that I should think of a business that could essentially live within the shell of a McDonald’s. (Like one crab moving into another crab’s shell.) As they’re fairly standard, I thought it would be neat to be ready with a plan to change them over to something else, whether it be another restaurant or something else. Of course, it goes without saying that first stores to close would be those that aren’t doing well. As that’s the case, you’d have to ask yourself why they weren’t working. Is there a labor shortage in the area, not enough traffic flow, too much competition (i.e. another McDonald’s on the opposite corner), etc. It is an interesting puzzle though. If I had the time and energy, I’d give it some thought.

Here’s a quote from the NYT article:
