McDonald's old logo.svg

This logo was first introduced to the Iranians when McDonald's opened its first Iranian branch in Tabriz around 1971.

In 1979, the branch was closed due to the Islamic Revolution; a lot of foreign companies, specifically American, were forced to leave.

McDonald's attempted to re-enter the Iranian market in 1994, but this failed due to a hostile anti-American fundamentalist attack on the building which was under construction where the planned franchise would be opened. McDonald's does not plan on opening any restaurants in Iran at this time.
