Westboro – Popular Westboro outdoor outfitter Mountain Equipment Co-Op recently started work expanding their business into the neighbourhood, with some residents speculating it was for an expandedl kayak showroom. However, sources report the expansion is for a new fast food restaurant partnered with McDonald’s. Dubbed “MECDonald’s”, the new fast food eatery will cater to MEC customer’s who want food, folks and fun in a healthy, sustainable format.
Using health-conscious and organic ingredients the new MECDonald’s will serve a selection of healthy menu items including Tofu Nuggets, Quarter Granola With Cottage Cheese, Protein Shakes, Filet O’Vegan and The Big Flax. Partnered with muti-national fast food chain McDonald’s, the new MECDonald’s will use the popular Ronald McDonald character to promote their menu choices, but under a new name of Ronnie Runner, a more health conscious symbol of the food being served at MECDonald’s.
Utilizing the more bistro-like setting that many McDonald’s locations are converting to, the Westboro location is taking it one step further with the launch of MECDonald’s, which will also offer sell memberships to the restaurant at $5 a share. Kids are welcomed to sample “Morose Meals” that cater to children under 12. Comprising of a gluten-free spelt bun filled with organic greens and a side of kale chips, the Morose Meal will also come with a delightful safety reflector toy.
“I think its just what the neighbourhood needs.” exclaimed MECDonald’s Manager Mark Nutcliffe who thinks it will be a popular eating spot for both shoppers and visitors to the area. “We offer healthy alternatives to fast food that will satisfy any active lifestyle appetite.” Nutcliffe remarked. The new MECDonald’s is slated for a July 31st opening this summer.
