What’s more satisfying than sinking your teeth into a juicy McDonald’s hamburger? Well, how about knowing that it’ll only cost you 67 cents?
This Wednesday (August 16), McDonald’s Canada will be celebrating their 50th anniversary, and to show their appreciation to all their loyal (and hungry) Canadian customers, 67-cent hamburgers will be available from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m., coast to coast.
Why 67 cents, you ask?
Well, 50 years ago brings us all the way back to 1967, the year that the very first McDonald’s restaurant opened its golden arches on our side of the border – in Richmond, B.C., to be exact.
And as the saying goes, the rest is history. Canada has seen over 1,400 McDonald’s restaurants spring up across the country since that pivotal day. From launching the Ronald McDonald House Charities in 1974 to introducing the beloved McFlurry in 1995, these past 50 years have been eventful for the fast food chain.
“It’s amazing to think that a single B.C. location that started in 1967 has grown to over 1,400 restaurants across Canada,” McDonald’s Canada CEO John Betts said in a statement. “Looking ahead, we’re excited about our future and continuing to share special moments, like today, with Canadians from coast to coast.”
So grab a burger (or ten) this Wednesday — it could be another 50 years before we see prices like this again.
