My family and I are deeply committed to investing in the future of Youngstown. While this restaurant has closed for business reasons, we are very proud of our other nearby locations, including our newly-remodeled 5th Avenue restaurant. Every single employee at Market Street have been offered the opportunity to work at other McDonald’s locations within Youngstown. We invite our customers from Market Street to visit us at any of our nearby restaurants and enjoy the food and beverages that we’re proud to serve.”
