McDonald’s restaurants that might not seem very fancy, one lavish outlet in Freeport, Maine, US is standing out from the crowd with its lavish aesthetics.
a 168-year-old mansion, the restaurant offers a luxurious dining experience complete with wooden chairs and candle-lit tables. The restaurant looks like a manor house but with a McDonald’s sign.
The abode was
built by Freeport merchant William Gore in 1850, before being sold to McDonald’s in 1984. The locals, however, were not keen on having the fast food giant take over the house.
According to a 1984 article
by the New York Times
, the house was to be transformed into a McDonald’s outlet, but without the iconic Golden Arches logo.

took to the news without much favor, so management decided to keep the Gore House intact and maintain its classic Victorian aesthetic.
The menu of
the outlet offers more upscale dining, such as lobster roll that costs US$8.99. The restaurant has a drive-thru that was recently established. Stephen Leroy, manager of the McDonald’s media team, said that the company is willing to adapt and make it compatible to the residents living in the area.
