Perham McDonald's breaks ground

Email News Alerts

Construction has begun on the Perham McDonald's.

At a groundbreaking ceremony last week, the owners said the new fast food restaurant should be open by mid-August. 


The building, which is pre-assembled into large pieces and then shipped to its permanent location, takes only four days to put up once it's arrived. That part of the process should be happening here the week before the fourth of July.
