This is a list of countries with McDonald's restaurants. McDonald's is the second largest chain of fast food restaurants in the world,[1] with more than 36,000 outlets worldwide.[2] 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).[3][4][5][6] The biggest still standing is in Will Rogers Turnpike.[6]

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

Locations of McDonalds.jpg

Former locations[edit]

# Name of country Date of first store Date of closure Reason for closure
1  Iran[47] 1973 1979 Closed due to measures adopted by the Iranian government after the Iranian Revolution.
2  Barbados[48] August 25, 1989 December 13, 1990 Closed due to extremely poor sales.
3  Bermuda[49] (part of  United Kingdom) November 10, 1985 March 9, 1995 Closed due to a passage of the government law that banned franchised restaurants in the territory. The McDonald's restaurant was located on a US Naval Air Station and was thus exempt from the law. When the base closed in 1995, the restaurant was required to do likewise.
4  Bolivia November 21, 1997 November 30, 2002 Closed due to poor sales and high prices. McDonald's is trying to reenter the Bolivian market, but with no success so far.
5  Jamaica[50] April 15, 1995 October 14, 2005 Closed due to governmental problems and declining sales.
6  Montenegro
(part of  Serbia and Montenegro at the time)
June 1, 2004 2007 A seasonal McDonald's restaurant was opened in Budva, but it was closed due to the lack of location.
7  Iceland September 1, 1993 October 31, 2009 All branches were closed down by Icelandic affiliates due to both prohibitive costs of importing foreign food products as required by McDonald's. Its three former outlets were rebranded as its own chain of Metro restaurants, which offer similar services and menus with domestically produced ingredients.
8  North Macedonia
(named Republic of Macedonia at the time)
September 6, 1997 May 15, 2013 Closed due to a dispute in contract and contractual obligations with the franchise owner Sveto Janevski.
9  San Marino July 6, 1999 July 6, 2019 The one and only McDonald's restaurant based in the country was located in Borgo Maggiore. It ceased operations on 6 July 2019, 20 years after its opening, due to its close proximity to restaurants in nearby Italian communities, which resulted in the decline of that restaurant's sales.
