Single Arch[edit]

Now I recall going to a McDonald's in Biloxi, Mississippi in 2000 and seeing the original single arch sign with Speedee, standing in front of the retro-looking restaraunt building. I'm not sure what other restaraunts still have the original single arch signs, but I'm certain that the one in Biloxi was wiped out by Hurricane Katrina. Wslupecki 00:38, 4 August 2006 (UTC).

The 1953 one in Downey (at Lakewood and Florence) has the two arches design, plus a third arch with "Speedee" on top. 7 July 2011 — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 12:05, 7 July 2011 (UTC)

Tacos El Gavilan, South Los Angeles, California[edit]

It has a Golden Arches design in the classic McDonald's style from the 1950s, apparently. (talk) 03:01, 1 July 2008 (UTC)


I have removed the following sentence from the Introduction paragraph, as it isn't properly written and lacks a citation. In addition, if it were to be included, one should do it in proper disambiguation format. ALSO, known as a shape of eyebrow. Eyebrows that have been waxed(plucked,tweezed, ect.) so often they look like McDonald's Golden Arches. -- (talk) 10:29, 23 October 2009 (UTC)

Text relating to international conflict has been moved.[edit]

I've moved both the article text and the talk page discussion text related to international conflict to Democratic peace theory#"Golden Arches Theory of Conflict Prevention" and to Talk:Democratic peace theory respectively. I did this because this article had two completely different subjects. The first half is about architecture/design/branding. The second half is about international conflict. But the "Golden arches" in Friedman's theory is irrelevant to the design issue; it would have been identical even if titled "Micky D's Theory of Conflict Prevention". So the two aren't related at all, and putting them into the same article is like having a combined article titled "Windows" that is about both the Microsoft operating system of that name and the clear glass in the walls of homes. -- John Broughton (♫♫) 03:27, 13 October 2012 (UTC)

This job is only half done. McDonalds Rule still links here. (talk) 13:16, 4 November 2012 (UTC)
Yes check.svg Done. I updated the redirects "McDonalds Rule" and "Golden Arches theory" so they point the same place as the "Golden Arches Theory of Conflict Prevention" redirect -- now all three redirect to democratic peace theory#"Golden Arches Theory of Conflict Prevention". --DavidCary (talk) 04:19, 13 May 2013 (UTC)

our kingdom is highly recognized in the nation for McDonald's and MCDowell's food and service. Over the years there has been customers that would not go no other place to dine at with welcome smile that will always enriched the service and customer. McDowell's and McDonald's was not slaves or enemies, but inherit an organization that spreaded the love in the Nations that love to be united with gift of one high that gave back to many.
