- McDonalds's has opened its smallest restaurant in the world as a haven for bees.
- The tiny eatery, which is a fully-functioning beehive, was handcrafted by a woodworker and has "room for thousands of important guests," according to a video of the finished product.
- The restaurant is complete with a McDonald's sign, "drive-thru," patio with seating, and advertisements on the windows.
- McDonald's commissioned the project to pay homage to its restaurants in Sweden that have beehives on their rooftops.
- Other McDonald's franchises have contributed to efforts to save bees, which have been dying at an alarming rate in recent years, by planting flowers outside their restaurants.
