McDonald’s Indonesia branches forced to briefly shut due to high BTS meals orders
The launch sparked frenzied excitement and fears of a coronavirus contagion.
Some McDonald’s branches in Indonesia were forced to briefly shut their doors due to the demand for the newly-launched BTS Meal, named after the seven-member K-Pop phenomenon.
Orders for the limited-edition meal resulted in flocks of motorcycle delivery drivers showing up at outlets across the country, leading to local police having temporarily closed 32 McDonald’s outlets after finding them to have violated health protocols.
Introduced in nearly 50 other countries, the BTS Meal consists of nine chicken nuggets, two sauces, medium fries and a drink, and comes in a box with a purple logo. The item remains available in Indonesia until next month.
