McDonald's Opening Up Vegetarian Location

Filed under: Business BlitzFast FoodVegetarian

McDonald's will be opening up its first ever vegetarian restaurant!

The meatless location will be opening in Northern India, near the Golden Temple in the Sikh city of Amritsar.

The spokesman for McDonald's in India said:

"It will be the first time we have opened a vegetarian restaurant. There is a big opportunity for vegetarian restaurants [in India] as many Indians are vegetarian."

The restaurant was already pretty food conscious in that part of the world because many Hindus and Muslims don't eat beef or pork, so chicken was already being substituted in most meals.

Now they're just cutting out all the meat.

Maybe they'd open one here in the U.S. because vegetarianism and veganism are becoming so popular.

We can only hope for such a healthy dream to come true.

New to the scene snack brand Popchips just snagged themselves one heck of a spokeslady!

Katy Perry will now be repping Popchips!

She has even invested in the company and become a creative partner.

She joins the likes of Ashton Kutcher as a celebrity endorser of the puffy chips.

Hopefully she won't be doing any potentially racist ads like Kutcher's "brown face" portrayal of an Indian man.

Katy's ads will be coming this fall so we'll see what she's got!

Well, it looks like someone was listening, because Krispie Kreme is about to open 80 stores in the country!

These will be added to the 690 stores in 21 countries world wide.

Like we said: finally.

Anyone else feel like places are just fine without it??

The data was almost 2 million swims spanning 5 years, ending in 2010.

KFC Thailand Apologizes For Insensitive Tsunami Ad

KFC Thailand

As they should!

It should have never happened in the first place, though!

KFC Thailand has had to do some damage control and apologize for posting a Facebook message that urged people to hurry up and order a bucket of chicken… during Wednesday's tsunami scare!

So basically as people were being told to evacuate from beaches, the company went ahead and said this:

"Let's hurry home and follow the earthquake news. And don't forget to order your favorite KFC menu."

That's extremely insensitive! Whoever thought that was a good idea — and then the person who gave permission to post it — should be fired. That's a no-brainer.

More than 8,000 people in Thailand died in the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami (230,000 in Indonesia), so you can see why people are so upset!
