Theme and Development of this outlet
Today, there are 250+ restaurants across 34 cities and 10 states in West and South India. And out of those 250+ restaurants, I have chosen my favourite restaurant in Ahmedabad. It is located in Chandkheda. Chandkheda is one of the developing areas in Ahmedabad and the McDonald’s restaurant in this area is probably newest in the city. I have witnessed its growth since its inception. It was started as a small outlet in 2 storey small commercial complex. Soon, it became a hangout place in Ahmedabad. And then, from one floor small outlet, it became an upgraded McDonald’s restaurant. Today, it occupies one-third of that complex.
What it offers to it’s customers
McDonald’s offers quality food at cheaper price, that’s why people choose McDonald’s.

McCafe is the value addition in that menu and this outlet in Chandkheda has McCafe. McCafe will impress you with the variety of cold coffee in the land where there is no Starbucks. Moreover, It provides you that variety at much cheaper rate than Starbucks. Apart from variety in cold coffee, McCafe offers awesome options in hot coffee and tea.
