McHive, A Tiny Replica of a McDonald’s That Also Serves As a Fully Functioning Beehive

Several McDonald’s in Sweden have been putting beehives on their rooftops in order to safely house and replenish the worldwide dwindling bee population. In that spirit, BBD Nord announced that that they have built the “McHive”, a tiny replica of McDonald’s that’s also a completely functioning beehive.

Some of McDonald’s restaurants in Sweden have beehives on their rooftops. The initiative started out locally but is now growing. More franchisees around the country are joining the cause and have also started replacing the grass around their restaurants with flowers and plants that are important for the wellbeing of wild bees. To celebrate the initiative which is part of McDonald’s Swedens sustainability work, we created what could be the world’s smallest McDonald’s – a fully functioning beehive.
