Major Facelift on Troost Avenue

Congratulations to the McDonald’s restaurant at 6406 Troost Avenue for being awarded the Southtown Sparkle Award for May. Major remodeling was completed recently at this very busy location; while continuing to serve their customers non-stop. Owner Ralph King pulled off a feat of magic and totally transformed the entire building, inside and out, at the tune of approximately $750,000.
