Slovaks enjoy fast food growth

McDonald’s continued to be a popular stop-off point for hungry Slovaks short on time in 2004.

Customers in Slovakia spent a total Sk603.1 million (€15.5 million) and placed 12.6 million separate orders at the popular fast food outlets in 2004, according to the daily Pravda.

Those figures represent year-on-year growth of 9.6 percent.

There are only 16 McDonald's restaurants in Slovakia, eight of which operate under franchise.
