10月25日,麦当劳的微博(Weibo)告诉人们,“麦当劳”改为“金拱门”了。网友们都非常关注,很多网友表示改了名字之后的麦当劳,更像一个中国的餐厅,还有网友说:“以后我们不能说去吃麦当劳了,而要说我们去吃金拱门。”但是麦当劳又说,“只是改了餐厅的注册名字,”商店还是用以前的名字“麦当劳”。

早在今年1月,麦当劳中国股份的52%被中信公司(CITIC Group)买了,美国的凯雷公司(Carlyle Investment Group)有28%,麦当劳自己就只有20%了。所以,麦当劳改名字和这件事是有关的。现在麦当劳提出了“愿景2022”的计划,到2022年,中国的麦当劳餐厅将增加到4500家。并且麦当劳在中国三四线城市,每年将新开500家餐厅。
