McDonald's Serves up Tasty Treats at the Olympics

Spectators visiting the Barra Olympic Park are in for a real treat during the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio. McDonald’s will operate a dessert kiosk from August 6, when the Olympic Park opens, until the Games end on August 21.  This iconic dessert center will then reopen and operate for the duration of the Paralympic Games.  Along with offering vanilla cones, chocolate and strawberry sundaes, and bottled water, the McDonald’s dessert kiosk will serve three versions of the McFlurry: chocolate, crunchy and banana with muesli.  This gives guests the opportunity to enjoy a treat and refresh while experiencing the excitement of the Olympic Games. The kiosk will operate from 9:00 a.m. to 10 p.m. each day.
McDonald’s dessert centers are widely popular in Latin America - there are currently more than 2,500 in operation. The kiosk at the Barra Olympic Park will allow spectators from all over the world a chance to try this uniquely Brazilian, gold-medal dessert experience.
Similar to the 2014 Winter Olympic Games in Sochi, McDonald’s will also operate a restaurant in the International Zone of the Athlete’s Village and will serve athletes, coaches, officials and their guests. The International Zone McDonald’s opens on July 29 and will operate throughout the Olympic and Paralympic Games. The menu will include a variety of menu options at this location, including: McDonald’s iconic favorites like the Big Mac sandwich, Chicken McNuggets and World Famous Fries, as well as Grilled Chicken Sandwiches and Grilled Chicken Salads, Fruit & Yogurt Parfait and Cherry Tomatoes. Breakfast items like the local Pao de Queijo and Egg, Cheese and Bacon sandwiches will also be served all day in the International Zone restaurant, along with various McCafe beverages and bakery items.
Additionally, there will be nearly 100 McDonald’s restaurants in and around Rio open and excited to welcome guests from around the world.
