Electric Car-Charging Restaurant Chains

McDonald's Sweden Installs Electric Car-Charging Stations

— August 31, 2019 — Autos
A total of 55 electric car-charging stations have been installed across Sweden in McDonald's Drive-Thru locations.

The iconic fast food chain has attentively conducted a survey to determine the demand for charing outposts, finding that 48% of electric car drivers find it "difficult to find charging stations." As a result, the QSR is addressing this and is steadily implementing opportunities to juice up one's vehicle and motivate a fossil-free future.

To draw attention to the availability of electric car-charging stations in its parking lots, McDonald's has upgraded its iconic signpost. Above the price details for a Big Mac and a Happy Meal — two beloved McDonald's classics, the fast food restaurant installs signage for its charging stations. The first of these have been successfully implemented in Mjölby and Munkedal locations.
Trend Themes
1. Electric Car-charging Stations - McDonald's Sweden installs electric car-charging stations in its Drive-Thru locations, addressing the demand for charging infrastructure for electric vehicles.
2. Fossil-free Future - McDonald's is contributing to a fossil-free future by providing electric car-charging stations at its restaurants and encouraging the use of electric vehicles.
3. Enhanced Signage - McDonald's upgrades its iconic signpost to include signage for electric car-charging stations, drawing attention to the availability of charging infrastructure.
Industry Implications
1. Fast Food - The fast food industry can seize the opportunity to cater to the needs of electric vehicle drivers by installing electric car-charging stations at their locations.
2. QSR (quick Service Restaurants) - Quick service restaurants like McDonald's can differentiate themselves and attract customers by offering electric car-charging stations in their parking lots.
3. Automobile - The automobile industry can partner with fast food chains to expand the network of electric car-charging stations, making it more convenient for electric vehicle owners to find charging options.
