This comes from an agreement the company signed with Arcos Dorados. This is the world’s largest independent McDonald’s franchisee, with locations largely in Latin America and the Caribbean.
That deal has Blink Charging bringing its EV charging stations to five McDonald’s locations in Puerto Rico. Blink Charging will set up its IQ 200 pedestal chargers in Mayaguez, Fajardo, Ponce, and San Juan by the end of the summer.
Juan Barahona, US & Global Director of Operations for Blink Charging, said the following about the deal:
“We applaud Arcos Dorados for their visionary move and forward-thinking actions in integrating EV charging in their prominent restaurants throughout Puerto Rico. Arcos Dorados’s leadership within the Latin American and Caribbean dining sector sets a remarkable precedent for embracing the EV revolution.”
