Mount Vernon McDonald's Construction Update
Renovation on the restaurant is nearing completion.
McChanges are coming to the McDonald's restaurant in Mount Vernon.
Renovation on the McDonald's restaurant on Richmond Highway is nearing completion.
In a bid to become a little more hip and inviting to a younger demographic — think Starbucks or Panera — according to news reports, we'll soon see more earth tones and less primary colors next time the doors swing open at the location after renovations are completed.
"The environment is a massive influence on how we behave," says brand guru Philip Graves told USA Today. "Change the environment, and you change how people perceive everything else."
The renovations are part of a nationwide facelift for the popular burger chain. The average price for renovations, according to some news reports is about $550,000.
The fast-food restaurant has been closed since June. Construction crews demolished the building this summer and have been rebuilding it.
