The McDonald’s franchise on Northern Boulevard in Flushing has permanently closed.
The restaurant, which served the iconic fast-food chain’s burgers and fries at 144-01 Northern Blvd., closed on Sept. 30. McDonald’s and its franchisees operate numerous other restaurants throughout the area, including at 40-18 Main St.
Jack Bert, the owner and operator of the franchise and several other McDonald’s in the area, released a statement to confirm the closure. Bert did not say why he had decided to close the restaurant.
“We are grateful to our hardworking restaurant team who provided years of dedicated service, all of whom have been offered the opportunity to work at our other restaurants, and we thank the community for their patronage,” Bert said. “We look forward to continuing to serve our customers at one of our other McDonald’s restaurants in the area.”
There are nearly 37,000 McDonald’s locations worldwide, including 560 company-owned restaurants and 65 franchises in New York, Connecticut and New Jersey.
