To celebrate its new Worldwide Favorites menu, the McDonald’s at JFK Terminal 4 – the international gateway to New York City – hosted a media tasting event and used McDonald’s International Currency Exchange to give back to Ronald McDonald House New York.
During the event, customers were able to exchange any amount of any international currency for one of McDonald’s four Worldwide Favorites menu items – which included a Stroopwafel McFlurry from the Netherlands and the Grand McExtreme Bacon Burger from Spain – through McDonald’s International Currency Exchange. The McDonald’s at T4 donated the foreign currency collected from the exchange to Ronald McDonald House New York, which provides temporary lodging and care for more than 35,000 families while their child battles cancer.
“I can’t think of a better place than T4 for McDonald’s to celebrate the launch of their new international menu items,” said Roel Huinink, President and CEO of JFKIAT, the company which operates T4. “With more than 21 million passengers traveling through T4 every year, we serve as the international gateway for New York City and the rest of the United States. As such, we offer a wide range of exciting dining and retail options – including this McDonald’s – to accommodate travelers from all over the world.”

The terminal offers more than 122,200 square-feet devoted to shopping and dining – featuring chic, upscale boutiques, convenience and gift stores, world-class eateries, well-known casual dining, health options and food-to-go, fitting the need of every traveler.
