mcdonald’s has unveiled a mini version of its iconic restaurant in a bid to attract thousands of ‘important guests’ every day. complete with drive-thru windows and al fresco tables, the fast food company is calling the branch it’s ‘smallest mcdonald’s in the world’, but it is actually a fully functioning beehive.

  • I agree with the other two people about this being stupid to do this l.look at all the smoke coming from the top of the roof,also the heat on the roof would be devastating for the honeybees. We have been beekeepers for 40 years and we educate as many people as we can about the honeybees. The chemicals used of foods then got to the fast places they are killing us and our children. Yes the hiwve is cute but not productive. If the bees die with in four years we will not have food to eat. Save the honeybees.

  • Marketing ploy. If McDonald’s wants to help bees why do they have to stick their logo on it? I agree with the others, they need to start by thinking about all the damage they are doing with the beef manufacturing farms and do something about that!

  • It’s a great start – the more children get involved with beekeeping, the more chance bees and the planet have in the future…
