The McDonald’s on Montgomery Cross Rd, the sixth location to be owned and operated by Nina Tracy Gompels (NTG) Enterprises, opened last Tuesday, November 24. In conjunction with the grand opening, this McDonald’s will host a number of events, such as “free Big Macs for a year” for the first 100 customers; the “Find Happiness Around Sandfly” scavenger hunt and several community nights for local organizations.

McDonald’s collaborated with the Savannah Tree Foundation (STF) on the design of the landscape to enhance environmental resources on the site and maximize tree counts. Additionally, there will be wall graphics inside the store utilizing photographs from local Isle Of Hope photographers and a mural depicting the local Ronald McDonald House.

McDonald’s offers community support through McTeacher’s nights, various Ronald Programs for reading and good citizenship, the Archways to Opportunity for tuition assistance and a free online high school diploma program and the John Cisna Nutrition, Education and Awareness program.

The store will execute the all day breakfast option. Gompels said, “We’ve seen a lot of enthusiasm from people who are happy to be getting their breakfast biscuit any time of day, although burgers still are the heavy hitters for lunch.”

To celebrate the opening of this new location, Gompels will hold several Community Nights. Also, on Saturday, December 12, Mc- Donalds will hold a “Find Happiness Around Sandfly” scavenger hunt. Thirty happy meal boxes will be hidden around various locations in the area, and participants will be given hints on the locations to then find the giant meal box and return it to the restaurant for great “local happiness” prizes.
