We will be open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. We will be providing foodstuffs during matches at all match venues. Our facilities have been tested, and are in good shape, said Motsieloa.

The Open Door Tour showed the media how the workers in the fast-food outlets would be able to experience daily operations of the business and gain an in-depth understanding of the safety and quality practices related to McDonalds food preparation.
