McDonald’s opens today in Ladysmith, the third in Caroline
A McDonald’s opened just after midnight this morning in Ladysmith.
The 80-seat restaurant is located immediately adjacent to Interstate 95 at the 110 interchange and across State Route 639 from Exxon.
It will be open 24 hours a day and employ 85 to 90 people.
This is the third McDonald’s to open in Caroline County, and the first location there for Craig Welburn, Jr.
He owns eight McDonald’s in Central Virginia.
Welburn donated $500 to both Caroline County Emergency Services and the Caroline YMCA in July at the groundbreaking ceremony for the Ladysmith location.
A grand opening date has not been set yet.
