Starting July 2008, Strensham opened an expeimental MacDonalds restaurant. Prior to this there were only 4 MacDonalds on the Motorway Network. The Strensham restaurant is to be operated on different terms and if sucessful, will result in 24 more restaurants opening at Roadchef sites. The difference is the Franchising model in use. The current 4 are typical individual concerns.
