McDonald's, 522 Ames St., will serve its final hamburger in Baldwin City this week.

Santa Fe Market owner Frank Foye confirmed Friday will be the final day food is served at the local franchise restaurant.

Foye has talked with other restaurants interested in a Baldwin City location, but he is yet to fill the space with a new business.

"We're talking with one other restaurant but we have not finalized anything," Sante Fe Market owner Frank Foye said.

Foye said he is hoping to at least have plans for a restaurant to occupy the McDonald's location by Sept. 30.

Baldwin City McDonald's franchise owner Steve Bates did not return requests for comment.

Although it is sad that Baldwin is losing another business, I am not surprised. I quit there a long time ago. The service was terrible. My order was consistently wrong, cold , or took forever. Seriously it took 20 minutes to get 4 chicken wraps and 2 large fries with no salt. Complaining about it did no good as it just brought sighs and eye rolling from some of the staff. It is impossible to stay in business when you treat your customers like they are a nuisance.

I have to agree. Very poor service. Should had had the owners of the Lawrence McDs run the store.

Or they should have just asked for some free money from the city. They could say that it would keep valuable needed jobs here in town. Oh well I guess those working there can always apply at the Dinner Train, or that other great business that is going to open up in that building on the NW corner of 6th and High.

Oscar your taxes are too high because the city and others in this town are smart in their planning. It is local places like this closing that causes your taxes to go up.
