Burger giant McDonald's has said it will spend £116 million on 100 new
restaurants in Britain this year.
Most of the restaurants will be free-standing modular buildings that can be erected within two weeks.
McDonald's building partners, Yorkon and Britspace, will supply most of the buildings.
A spokesman for the company said that the low construction cost of the modular restaurants meant it was now possible to build in areas which might not have been viable in the past.
