The first restaurant McDonald’s opened outside the United States, in 1970, was right here in Ticolandia (Costa Rica) and is still in the place where it started, in the heart of San Jose, across from the Banco Central.

But that is about to change 49 years later.

The restaurant will soon relocate 100 meters (a block) away from the current location, on the boulevard (Avenida Central), between Calles 2 and 4.

The new home will be in a three-story building that is expected to be ready on December 30.

The new restaurant to open on Dec.30

Wendy Madriz, communications director at Arcos Dorados Costa Rica, the company that owns McDonald’s licenses in the country, explained the reasons for the change.

“In Arcos Dorados we continue to look for growth opportunities to be closer and closer to our customers. Soon we will be announcing where we will surprise with the experience restaurants of the future,” said Madriz.

Like the McDonald’s of Pérez Zeledón, the first MacDonalds the franchise opened outside the Central Valley, which was recently remodeled and open 24/7, the new Mac Banco Central is expected to be “something else” with its cutting-edge technology when it comes to fast food businesses.

The company calls it the “experience of the future”.

Customers will find digital kiosks to place orders through screens, and without using the traditional cajas (cash registers), customers can place their orders both to eat in or take out.

Not to worry, if you want to continue ordering as usual, you will still be able to.

“Soon we will be announcing where we will surprise our customers with the experience restaurants of the future,” said Wendy Madriz.

With the arrival of this new technological era, Arcos Dorados will be tripling the number of workers dedicated to this experience and recruiting more than 100 people for the new openings.
