MARTINSBURG, W.Va. —
McDonald’s franchisee Susan Erwin officially celebrated the major makeover of her Apple Harvest Drive restaurant in Martinsburg on Oct. 13.
The rebuilding included contemporizing interiors and exteriors by upgrading infrastructure, and enhancing restaurant capacity. Architecturally, improvements include a new entry into the restaurant, and modern community and lounge seating areas. The interior features a modern color palette, plasma screen TVs and free Wi-Fi access.
