In conjuction with Merdeka and Malaysia Day, McDonald’s Malaysia is once again embracing its ‘Malaysian-ness’ by having the Mekdi signage at selected restaurants nationwide.
This comes as the company celebrates 38 years since opening its first McDonald’s restaurant at Bukit Bintang. The signage for Mekdi – which is the localised nickname for ‘McD’, short for McDonald’s – was officially displayed at a celebration held at McDonald’s Putrajaya Drive-Thru restaurant, and will also be prominently put up at 16* selected restaurants across various states in the country.
What’s even more exciting, the 16 restaurants were chosen by Malaysians themselves, who were given the power to vote for which McDonald’s restaurant should display the Mekdi signage.
“Fondly known to Malaysians as Mekdi, McDonald’s has become the brand it is today because of the unwavering support of our customers. The Mekdi name created a lot of excitement last year when we first revealed the signage at our iconic Bukit Bintang restaurant, and this showed how Mekdi truly resonated with Malaysians from all walks of life. So this year, we wanted to pay tribute to more Malaysians across the country by turning their favourite McDonald’s into a Mekdi as well,” – Hajjah Melati Abdul Hai, Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer of McDonald’s Malaysia.
