Like all McDonalds stores are franchises in Brazil, we may consider them small businesses. And usually the Mc Donalds in Brazil has no target audience as tourists.

That is the reality of small businesses in Brazil.

Do you know the name's of the top structural engineering companies in Sao Paulo and Rio De Janeiro?

Unfortunately I do not know if I can help you with that.

Have you visited the Brazilians Forums ?

Post this question out there that might have better answers.

I suggest that a navigated by it.
Visit the Projects and the regional subforums, where you can see images of Brazilian cities in more detail.
Will have the opportunity to know better what is constructed throughout Brazil, beyond the Rio and Sao Paulo.

In addition to Sao Paulo (19) and Rio(13), the major Brazilian cities are : Belo Horizonte (5,2), Porto Alegre(4,5), Curitiba(3), Salvador(3,6), Recife(3,8), Fortaleza(3,5), Brasilia(3), Goiania(2,3) and Belem(2,5).

* Parenthesis, the approximate population of the metropolitan regions of these cities.

I never eat at McDonalds and especially not in Rio. The Brazilian street restaurants in Rio (Copacobana) is brilliant!

Thanks for the great info. It sounds like it would be somewhat difficult for me to get a job there and be successful, even though there is alot of construction going on, do to the language barier. I'm going to have to find some big strucutal engineering firms in Brazil, then call them to find out more. I do think that ultimatley, Brazil would be a great place to live for a while.
