The information was revealed by an officer of Good Day Hospitality Joint Stock Company, McDonald’s developmental licensee for Vietnam.

However, the date for the opening of this first restaurant in Hanoi was not disclosed.

Launched in Vietnam in February 2014, McDonald’s Vietnam currently has 16 restaurants, all in Ho Chi Minh City.

The plan to expand its operation to Hanoi was prepared by Good Day Hospitality in early 2016, after its annual growth rate was doubled from 2014. However, till date, there are no McDonald’s restaurants in Hanoi or northern provinces.

At a recent human resources conference, Good Day Hospitality’s general director Nguyen Bao Hoang reiterated that his company is recruiting many talented young people to realise the expansion plan. Hoàng also confirmed that McDonald’s Vietnam will expand to the capital city and the northern markets in the future.

The building on No 2 Hang Bai Street, Hoan Kiem district, expected to be the location of the first McDonald’s restaurant in Hanoi, has an area of 697sq.m and is located in the centre of the city, near Returned Sword Lake. 

McDonald’s offers unique experiences for Vietnamese consumers, such as drive-thru parking, 24-hour operation and a McCafé professional coffee shop located right inside the restaurant.
