What’s Next? The McDonalds Hotel?
It’s doubtful that we’re going to see a McDonalds Hotel anytime soon. In 2001, McDonalds opened two “Golden Arches” hotels in Switzerland and the experiment did not go well. The hotels were only in operation for two years. There are however other successful hotels associated with fashion, jewelry, crystal or home goods retailers like Armani, Versace, Bulgari, Baccarat, Ikea, Muji and Shinola. It will be interesting to see how the Taco Bell Hotel fares in a competitive marketplace.
