OPENING IN LIMA, PERU
SET UP OF THE NEW STRUCTURE
DRESS CODE FOR EMPLOYEES
1. How does the food, dress code, building design relate to the culture of your country?
The food items that were added to our menu relate to the culture of Lima because they are mostly South American items, which most people in Peru eat. In fact, we purposely put a "South American twist" on our menu items to appeal to the public. The dress code that the employees must wear relate to the culture of Peru because it is adapted to the weather, and also to our religion to respect the public's traditions. Also, we wanted to have a large McDonalds, but in Lima there is limited building space...So our only option was to build up! This relates to the culture of our country because most buildings in Lima are like this, and that is what the public is used to.
2. How does it show globalization?
The spread of this "All-American fast food" restaurant to Peru is globalization itself. The idea of this restaurant spread to Lima, affecting and even changing our culture because we adapted some of America's food. Even though we put our own twist on many items, we still adapted an idea from another location.
