Ever-expanding
McDonald's Denmark opened four new locations in 2013 and expects to open three to six new locations annually in the years ahead, with the next due to open in Næstved Harbour in August, creating 50 new jobs.

“New restaurants and extended hours where more and more locations are open around the clock have played a major role in the growth,” McDonald's Denmark's chief executive Stephen Shillington said in a statement.

“We are very pleased to show this kind of profit in a hard market."

McDonald's Denmark has approximately 4,200 employees who serve about 160,000 meals a day. The company paid nearly 20 million kroner in taxes in 2013.
