McDonald's has plans to open a store in Waddy this spring, company officials said.
Jim Frans, director of operations for McDonald's in Shelbyville, said that a new location is expected to open at a new truck stop coming to Waddy.
Love's Truck Stop will be located just off the Interstate 64 and is expected to open sometime between March and June, Frans said.
"The weather will be the determining factor," he said.
Frans said the McDonald's will employ from 40 to 50 people, and that hiring for managers will begin in March.
