The city of St. Joseph, Missouri, has officially been put on the map by a new addition set to open in July.
McDonald‘s has announced that a franchise “of the future” is coming to St. Joe. It’s similar in scope to the hipster McD’s of Hong Kong that offered Chipotle-esque customization options without the E. coli upcharge. Because this is America, though, McDonald’s is offering one very unique thing at the stateside location: all-you-can-eat french fries.
Needless to say, people are seriously losing their shit over the announcement:
I hear all you can eat fries are coming to @McDonalds possibly *pants rip* *chair buckles* *ground sinkholes* *heart attacks* *coke diets* –

The official St. Joe’s McDonald’s Facebook page recently unveiled its plans following a fairly standard groundbreaking ceremony featuring a bunch of white-collar folks in hard hats awkwardly wielding shovels. The design is pretty standard fare in our world of forced minimalism equating to shiny and new.
