Sneak peek at IYB: McDonald's coming to campus

Here's a sneak peek at an item from It's Your Business. Read this and more Sunday.

The new McDonald’s in Champaign’s Campustown could open as early as next week.

“It is close,” said Scott Miller, who operates the business with his father, franchisee Dwight Miller.

The store, located in the Technology Plaza building on the north side of Green Street between Sixth and Wright streets, will operate 24 hours a day initially.

“It has a very contemporary look,” Miller said. “We want to make sure college students appreciate the atmosphere of the restaurant, so we’ve tied in an Illini element into the store.”

Graphics will include images of Memorial Stadium, the Block “I” and landmarks around campus, he said. Plus, there’s lot of orange in the restaurant.

The store has hired 60 crew people and 10 managers.

“We’re still taking applications,” Miller said.
