The local franchise of fast-food giant McDonald's recently opened its doors for the 700th time at Santa Rosa, Laguna's Nuvali development.

In a news release, Golden Arches, the mother company of Mcdonald's Philippines, said the latest Nuvali branch is among the 45 stores it opened in 2022.

It is also McDonald's fifth "Green & Good" store in the Philippines, equipped with solar power, rainwater harvesting tank, power-saving photo and motion sensors, an energy management system, LED lights and a more efficient air conditioning system, among other features.

Prefabricated framing produced offsite to reduce waste also uses 25% recycled steel.
Walkways and perimeter walls are made of eco-bricks and eco-pavers made of reused materials such as shredded plastics.
Solar rooftop that saves 57,500 kWh electricity per year and glass panels that reduce internal building temperature.
Interior LED lighting that lasts longer and reduces electricity use by 40%.
Low-flow urinals that use 50% less water and a very efficient variable refrigerant flow aircon system reduces energy consumption.
Solar-powered street lamps that work without energy supply.

It also includes bike-friendly facilities catering to the booming cycling community around the Ayala Land eco-estate.

Facilities for cyclists, such as an outdoor dining area with racks and a bike repair station, are set to open this month of January.

Owner George Yang, who is the master franchise owner, attended the opening of the branch on December 23 with Santa Rosa Mayor Arlene Arcillas, President and CEO Kenneth Yang and Ronald McDonald House Charities Ambassador Cindy Yang.

"With every Green & Good store that we open, we can determine and integrate better green building and utility-efficient solutions in more of the restaurants that we will open in the coming years,” Kenneth Yang said.

The branch is located along Nature Road. Other "Green & Good" branches are found along UN Del Pilar in Manila, Shaw Boulevard in Mandaluyong, Mambugan in Antipolo, Delos Reyes in Tagaytay and Sta. Monica at Commonwealth in Quezon City.
