This is an older one:

This one is sort of interesting. Its in a neighborhood known for its historic rowhouses. It attempts to mimic that style of building:

Photos from my archive: McDonalds at Florida Street (Buenos Aires' main pedestrian street). It's inside this old beaux-arts residential building, and it has two floors. These are photos of the upper level (originally an apartment, as you will note). Look how they ruined original wood floring replacing it by standard mcdonald's floor.

First Mc Donalds Eco-friendly in Latin America: Mc Donalds Riviera, SP, Brazil



Mc Donalds in the new shopping Mall in the emergent area of Itaquera, in Săo Paulo, Brazil. This is the most lucrative store in Latin America and the 22th in the World. It is located inside the mall, close to the future Corinthians Stadium, which will host the 2014 WC:



Here in SP we have a day when Mc Donalds become Kosher, so our huge jewish comunity can enjoy it:





Sao Paulo, Brazil — Sunday, Brazil history will be made, as the congress “Har Sinai” directed by Rabbi Ilan Ende the brother of the Rosh Yeshiva of the Chabad Yeshiva in Sao Paulo transformed the “McDonalds” branch in the heart of Sao Paulo into a Kosher restaurant for a day.

More pictures in the Extended Article!

The organizers told us that it was unbelievable and that they don’t ever remember in the history of Brazil nor in the history of the entire continent that 13,000 McDonald dinners strictly kosher were sold in 11 hours alone to over 5000 people who flooded the place.

The venture was initiated to promote a capmaign of making Jews aware of the importance and significance of eating only Kosher food. It started over a month ago when Rabbi Ilan Ende, a teacher in the Talmud Torah Lubavitch in Sao Paulo and director of the project “Atid” in cooperation with the shaliach Rabbi David Azulai, Rabbi of the Har Sinai synagogue came up with the idea of opening a branch of the giant American food chain McDonalds in accordance with the strict kosher requirements so Jews would be able to eat kosher even for one day only.

With the help of the Jewish owners of giant companies in Brazil – Mr. David Cohen, Mr. Elias Victor Nigri, Meir Nigri, the Cohen family and others this endeavor started to take shape and develop. It didn’t take long before it became the talk of the town in the Jewish community, they was very excited about it.

Rabbi Shamai Ende, the Rabbi of the Chabad community in Sao Paulo and head of the the Lubavitcher Yeshiva in the city who is responsible for issuing the Kosher cirtificate had seven G-d fearing supervisors working for him, the leader of the team is Rabbi Yosef Levaton.

A month before the restaurant opened the supervisors checked and double-checked the most minute details that concerned the opening of the new kosher branch: cleaning and “koshering” the utilities, making sure that the salads, bread, shechita and all other ingredients met the strict standards of a kosher certifcate.

Finally, last night 10 AM, the first kosher McDonalds on Prime Lima Street in Sao Paulo, Brazil opened its doors to customers. It didn’t take long before what started out as a regular working day turned into an unbelievable site in Brazil.

Hundreds of Jews, Chassidim, non-chassidim, religious as well as secular Jews stood on line to buy a kosher Mac. Even Jews who normally don’t eat Kosher were seen waiting patiently in line to buy kosher food.

Police directing traffic and EMS were at hand to maintain order. But the Lubavitcher, bochurim of the yeshiva took advantage of the situation and set up booths alongside the long lines and put on Tefilin with thousands of Jews.

The owners of the store compared their sales with the sales of the non-Kosher McDonalds and found that 8000 Big Mac kosher sandwiches were sold in just the first few hours after opening. One customer ordered 59 sandwishes and the owners were forced to announce that they won’t sell more than 10 to a customer.

Outside a big container of water was placed for people to wash before the meal. Even at 8 PM before closing the lines were still big.

After closing the owners found that in the course of 11 hours 13,000 kosher meals were sold to 5000 Jews in Sao Paulo.

His brother , Rabbi Ilan Ende added “today’s success proved itself and it looks like they will open the Kosher branch every Sunday and within time it will turn in to a daily kosher branch.
