McDonald’s represents turning point for culture of Granby

Having grown up in Granby and then spending most of my adult life in other parts of the country, I hold Granby on a sort of pedestal for what an ideal small town should be. The recent news of an inpending McDonald’s franchise comes as a bit of a sad note. I say this, not as an opponent, they do create part-time jobs, but it represents a turning point in the local culture, becoming the gateway for more fast food and further insulating the visitor to Grand County from the local fare.

Far and above, however, the saddest image I conjure up is the empty Mcdonalds bag lying alongside the pristine county road. Should they build it, the bags most certainly will come.
