McDonald’s Opens World’s Smallest Restaurant Exclusively For Bees

The world just got another McDonald's restaurant, and before you start complaining about the fact that there are already over 35,000 locations around the globe, consider this - it's for bees.

Yeah, suddenly this is the cutest thing you've read all day, isn't it?

The "McHive" just opened its itty-bitty doors in Sweden.

According to LADBible, this little restaurant has the proud distinction of being the world's smallest McDonald's.

But don't get too ahead of yourself and start picturing tiny orders of French fries and chicken nuggets, because it's not actually a McDonald's. It's a beehive.

It definitely looks the part though, doesn't it?

This miniature structure has everything a full-scale McDonald's could ever need - signs, a drive-thru area, and even those tell-tale golden arches, the universal symbol of delicious food.

But inside the "McHive" are thousands upon thousands of bees.

It's meant to be a sort of tribute to the restaurants in Sweden, some of which reportedly have bees living on their roofs.

The tiny McDonald's is part of an initiative to raise awareness for the declining bee population.

It started out as a local project with only one restaurant, but then five more joined in.

Now even more restaurants across the country are joining the cause to keep these pollinators pollinating, The Drum reported.

Nord DDB partnered with the food franchise to create the McHive, which lets bees enter through the main entrance and do their bee thing inside. These tiny structures have been placed on top of McDonald's roofs across the country.

The marketing director of McDonald's Sweden called the initiative a "great idea."

"We have a lot of really devoted franchisees who contribute to our sustainability work, and it feels good that we can use our size to amplify such a great idea as beehives on the rooftops," Christoffer Rönnblad told Adweed.

Because bees play such a crucial role in maintaining our ecosystem, making any effort to protect them against extinction is a fantastic idea.

Plus, the McHive is adorable. So every part of this story is just so good.
