Seoul Yangpyeong ‘McDonald’s Yangpyeong SK Branch’

McDonald’s is a prominent multinational fast-food franchise born in Chicago, Illinois, USA. It is synonymous with fast-food burgers and has become a trademark symbolizing American capitalism and globalization, alongside Coca-Cola and Apple.

Having expanded worldwide, McDonald’s is such a colossal company that it created the concept of the “Big Mac Index,” which calculates prices based on its menu item “Big Mac,” demonstrating its immense impact on the global economy.

You can find McDonald’s all over Korea, including in various locations in Seoul such as Yeongdeungpo-gu Office Station, Yangpyeong Station, Seonyudo Station, and Dangsan Station, located in a building with an “SK Gas Station.”

“Seoul McDonald’s Yangpyeong SK Branch”

The branch I visited this time is “McDonald’s Yangpyeong SK Branch,”. as indicated on the map. While it may appear to be a small-sized McDonald’s outlet from the outside, once you step inside, you’ll find that the second-floor space is quite spacious.

Although the first floor has relatively few seats, when you go up to the second floor, there are plenty of seats, making it relatively comfortable. There are also window seats, but the view from these seats is not particularly scenic as it overlooks the beginning of an elevated highway, leaving something to be desired.

“McDonald’s Outlet in a Ambiguous Location”

In general, McDonald’s outlets are quite accessible. However, in the case of Yangpyeong SK Branch, it is located in a rather ambiguous location, making it somewhat inconvenient to walk to. Perhaps for this reason, they also operate a drive-thru service, allowing customers to order, pack, and take their food with them right from their cars.

While it may be slightly disappointing and situated in an ambiguous location for walking, it is a McDonald’s outlet that is convenient to visit by car.
