McDonald’s & BTS partner on supergroup’s favorite order

The BTS Meal Will Hit Participating U.S. Restaurants Starting May 26

Get ready, because the Golden Arches are about to shine even brighter thanks to a new collab with 21st century global pop icons, BTS.

This one-of-a-kind menu “tour” officially kicks off on May 26 in the U.S., when customers can enjoy the BTS Meal at participating restaurants nationwide. The superstar band’s signature order includes a 10-piece Chicken McNuggets®, medium World Famous Fries®, medium Coke®and for the first time ever in the U.S., Sweet Chili and Cajun dipping sauces inspired by popular recipes from McDonald’s South Korea (cue even more ecstatic celebrating!).

“The band has great memories with McDonald’s. We’re excited about this collaboration and can’t wait to share the BTS Meal with the world,” says BIGHIT MUSIC, label of BTS.

Since 2013, BTS has topped charts and brought people together from all over the world through their music and positive messages. Following the successful launch of McDonald’s celebrity signature orders program last year, BTS is the latest icon to have their signature menu items featured at participating restaurants. However, they’ll be the first celebs to share their order with customers worldwide. That’s right… for the first time since McDonald’s launched celebrity signature orders, the BTS Meal will be available globally in nearly 50 countries.
