This McDonalds, located on 8th and Louise Streets, was the first one in Saskatoon, opening in the early 1970s. Although there have been some changes to the interior layout exterior of the building remains largely as it was when it opened and the restaurant continues to operate. The fast food market in Saskatoon now is far different than when it opened. At the time the only competition it had was Dairy Queen and Kentucky Fried Chicken(Saskatoon being one of the first cities in Canada to have a KFC.) Burger King was years away from setting up shop here, and franchises like Arby's and Wendy's weren't even a gleam on the horizon.
