About 10-15 years ago, I heard rumors that in 20 century every branch of McDonald in America had a bunker in case of war with USSR. Bunkers are placed in this way so that they can easily be found by residents - as everyone is well aware of where the nearest McDonald's is.

Here is an example of video (Russian, with English subtitles) covering this topic.

Is it true?

    The video doesn't just claim that all McDonalds have an underground nuclear bunker, but that the company is also a front, and was created for the purpose of hiding bunkers in plain sight. – SIMEL Jun 6 '17 at 14:39

    Has anyone else heard this claim before? At the moment, it just seems to be a weird joke that no-one is taking seriously. – Oddthinking Jun 6 '17 at 17:12

    No, though I can only cite my personal experience, having (some years ago) worked for a construction company that built restaurants for McDonalds (and other chains). Every one of the several dozen I was involved with was built on a concrete slab foundation. – jamesqf Jun 6 '17 at 18:18

    This is clearly bunk because everyone knows that fallout shelters were designated and marked. – user34422 Jun 6 '17 at 18:32

    @Mazura, at the end of the movie they claim that the bunkers can hold 100K people, so not all of the U.S population. – SIMEL Jun 7 '17 at 6:28
