McDonald's to Close Jamaica Restaurants
The restaurants, all owned by the company, will close Oct. 14 as part of a "business decision," said Maria Elena Santana, a spokeswoman for the restaurant company's Caribbean Division.
"At the moment, we cannot continue to serve Jamaicans the way they deserve and expect," said Santana, who is based in San Juan, Puerto Rico.
McDonald's, based in Oak Brook, Ill., plans to open new Jamaican restaurants in the future, though Santana declined to say when that might be.
