This is a listing of countries with McDonald's restaurants. McDonald's is the largest chain of fast food restaurants in the world.[4] It has more than 35,000 outlets worldwide.[5] The majority of McDonald's outlets outside of the United States are franchises.

The biggest temporary McDonald's restaurant in the world was opened during 2012 Summer Olympics in London, which had 3,000 square metres (32,000 sq ft).[6][6][7][8][9][10][11] The biggest still standing one is probably that at Will Rogers Turnpike.[11]

The list of countries follows the company's own calculation, and contains several non-sovereign territories.

  2. (August 25, 1989 – December 13, 1990)  Barbados [41] - Closed due to extremely slow sales.
  3. (October 24, 1997 – November 30, 2002)  Bolivia [42] - Closed due to slow sales and cost.
  4. (Unknown - 1979)  Iran - Closed during the Iranian Revolution and never reopened.
  5. (April 15, 1995 – October 14, 2005)  Jamaica [43] - Closed due to governmental problems and declining sales.
  6. (June 1, 2004 – 2007)  Montenegro - A seasonal McDonald's restaurant was opened in Budva, but it was closed due to the lack of location.

  8. (September 6, 1997 – May 15, 2013)  Macedonia - Closed due to dispute in contract and contractual obligations with the franchise owner Sveto Janevski.
