Mr Donut + McDonald's

Fast food row

Belleville, IL

 

The old single-arch McDonald's sign was quite a cause celebre in suburban Belleville a while back; when the restaurant itself was due to be remodeled, citizens expressed concern that the sign--a style of Golden Arch seldom seen these days--would be replaced. McDonald's capitulated, stressing loudly in the local press that it was costing them more to restore the old sign than it would have to replace it. Yeah, yeah. Thanks.

 

As far as I know, there were no tears shed when Mister Donut was hauled off to the landfill.
