This Spotlight is sponsored by McDonald’s.
Having opened at the end of 2020, this relatively new McDonald’s outlet is the first to have a unique design that’s inspired by the long roofs of traditional Negeri Sembilan homes.
Strategically located within close proximity to the Melaka-Negeri Sembilan state border, the building was originally a rest house that was used as a multi-purpose hall and motel, among other uses.
After being out of operation for many years, it was taken over by McDonald’s Malaysia and transformed into the McD outlet it is today.
Watch this video to see the transformation:
The Ronald McDonald – Yayasan Jaafar Ahmad Sensory Room was prepared for kids with special needs and learning difficulties, especially those from B40 families, to have a place to improve their cognitive skills and self confidence.
Since 1999, the Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) has been establishing Ronald McDonald Sensory Rooms nationwide.
To date, RMHC has developed a total of 35 sensory rooms throughout Malaysia, making it the largest network of sensory rooms in the country. With a sponsorship cost of more than RM4 million, these rooms have benefited more than 7,000 children, including in Sabah and Sarawak.
In line with the government’s goal of transforming Negeri Sembilan into a developing state, McDonald’s aims to not only help the state’s socio-economic development, but also offer employment and career development opportunities for the local community.
As part of this, McDonald’s Malaysia also handed over corporate zakat payments worth RM180,000 to the Majlis Agama Islam Negeri Sembilan (MAINs) at the Tampin outlet’s official opening ceremony on 8 March 2022. This money will be distributed to golongan asnaf and those in need throughout Negeri Sembilan.
