McDonald's is spending $1 billion to renovate all 1,400 of its Canadian restaurants, the same measures undertaken in the U.S. to polish the look of its stores.
The company will be tearing out some of its plastic interiors and adding new touches, both behind the counter and in front of it.
Some of the changes include fireplaces, flat-screens, as well as stone and tile accents. The company will be using new color schemes, but said Wednesday that "splashes" of the chain's traditional colors will remain.
More than half of Canadian restaurants will be retooled by the end of this year, with the majority of renovations expected to be completed next year.
McDonald's Restaurants of Canada Ltd. and its Canadian franchisees employ more than 80,000 people.
