McDonald’s is opening two restaurants where there will be absolutely no meat involved. Both of the restaurants will open next year in India — one in the city of Amritsar (the holiest site in the Sikh religion), and one in the town of Katra, according to Business Insider.
The stores are slated to serve the vegetarian items offered in Indian McDonald’s restaurants. And in a country where cows are sacred, and the Big Mac is instead the Maharaja Mac (with chicken patties), this change makes complete sense.
McDonald’s has more than 250 restaurants in India — a number that is expected to double in two years.
