Question: What Are the International Countries Where McDonald’s Restaurants Are Located?
Where can you get a McDonald’s hamburger outside of the U.S.? As one of the most recognized brands in the world, McDonald’s now has more restaurants located outside the U.S. than it has in its own home country.
