We’ve all been there — lost in a foreign land with our passports misplaced, questioning the place the hell the U.S. embassy is. Certain, we’d lookup instructions on our telephones — however after all, the sucker is useless. If solely there was some recognizable American quick meals restaurant conveniently situated in 119 nations internationally that might assist us out. Effectively, it seems, so long as you’re misplaced with out a passport in Austria you may flip to the good golden arches of McDonald’s for aide.
The U.S. State Division has simply struck a cope with McDonald’s in Austria that can basically flip all 194 Austria-based areas into U.S. embassies. Fast Company reports that McDonald’s workers could have 24-hour entry through a particular hotline to the U.S. Embassy in case any distressed Americans must get in contact. It’s ridiculous certain, but in addition sort of superior and extremely handy.
The deal was secured due to U.S. ambassador to Austria, Trevor Traina, who’s a little bit of a genius in his personal proper. Traina began buying and selling shares within the fifth grade and offered his first firm to Microsoft in 1999, however clearly this McDonald’s Austria Embassy deal might be his true declare to fame.
As of now, this settlement is simply between McDonald’s and Austria, however we count on this concept to increase if it really works out. America, the one nation that might make a quick meals firm double as an embassy. Now when will they add “I’m lovin’ it” to the Star Spangled Banner?
