McDonald's opens at the Louvre

PARIS, FRANCE (AP) -- It's a mix of fast food and fine art, and not everyone is happy about
it.

A McDonald's restaurant will open in the underground mall adjoining the
Louvre later this year.

It's a good bet for McDonald's.

According to company officials, the McDonald's on the Champs-Elysees is
the most profitable in the world, and France is the company's
second-biggest market after the U.S.

But the mix of french fries and high art has raised some hackles among
purists, who say it's another example of the "Disneylandization" of
French culture.
