Local News


The oldest and busiest McDonald’s Restaurant in Bend closed its doors at the end of business Saturday.  The good news is that it's because they are planning to tear down the old building and build a newer and larger one in its place. They originally planned the remodel last December, but plans were delayed while they worked out some issues with the city. Owner Nanette Bittler saidher parents opened this restaurant in 1973 and it was the first McDonalds in Central Oregon. One of the things she really loves about this store is; it's one of the first things you see when you drive down 3rd Street when you enter Bend. She says she's excited to rebuild this restaurant so it looks fresh, current and it makes a great impression whenever somebody enters our community. The new building will have two drive through lanes and be quite a bit larger. She says the current staff of 50 will be temporarily working in all of their other stores in Bend, La Pine and Sisters. Also, they plan to hire more staff when they reopen in a couple of months.
