Rockland — The fast food offerings in Rockland are fewer, at least temporarily,

McDonald's Restaurant at the intersection of Maverick and Camden Street is closed for three weeks for renovations.

The information filed with the Rockland code enforcement office indicates that the project will increase the seating capacity from 93 to 106. The estimated cost of the work is $300,000.

And nearby, the Subway in Rockland is closed for the week. A new vestibule and renovations inside are underway.

Burger King is not an option with that restaurant, diagonally across from McDonald's, closed Dec. 27.

If they also close the pizza shops half of Rockland will starve to death.

Increasing inside seating of a (at least for the foreseeable future) take-out only restaurant confuses me, especially with McDonalds being the ONLY fast food option in that part of town.  Most days the drive up line circies the building like a wagon train.  Any savy business owner knows if you close even for as little as a few weeks, customers get in the habit of going somewhere else.  Panara bread are you listening ?
