    Default McDonalds

    I was just wondering if anyone has opened up a McDonalds Franchise in the DR? or something like Pizza Hut or Domino's

    Yes to all three, and almost every other one you can think of.

    Yep, where McDonalds is now, on the corner of Sarasota and Churchill. There was a fabric store before.

    Heh!

    There was also the now-defunct Pollo Tropical, a Venezuelan chain, IIRC. If you wanted to see greasy-haired baseball players with pharmacy-rubias in the 80's that was your place.

    Yes, I remember seeing that one on Ave. Churchill the first time I visited. That must have been before the real McDonalds arrived.

    Yes, exactly. The two were in a trademark dispute for years that effectively delayed McDonald's entry into the market until long after Burger King had established its foothold. I remember well the McDowell's -- first time I saw it, my jaw dropped. The most blatant rip-off of a well-known trademark, formula etc that I have yet seen....

    It was funny to see that they ripped off the McDonald's logo so blatantly. It was just like in the Eddie Murphy movie 'Coming to America'......

    Anybody remember HOOTER's on the Malecon. and St. Vincents. Later changed the name to BOOTIES!

    Had the t-shirts, calendar's. Everything but the license.

    I wish they would start up an Arbys or a Chick-Fil-A.

    God do I miss them....
