Those residing and working east of 48th street will soon have another fast food giant in the neighborhood serving up Big Macs and Quarter Pounders. The new Golden Arches finally has an opening date.

The new franchise opens on Thursday, July 21 at 6:00 am. In addition, the first 50 customers in line will receive coupons for free french fries for an entire year.

The site, located at 48th and Broadway is the third McDonald's in Quincy. The owners, Mike and Breanne Kasprzyk, also own and operate the site at the Quincy Mall (3201 Broadway).

“We are excited to start the new addition to our community, and we look forward to serving you,” said Mike Kasprzyk.

Additional grand opening events will be announced in the days to come.
