McDonald’s with Teal Arches (Sedona, Arizona)

The McDonald’s in Sedona opened in 1993, and it’s the only restaurant of the chain with teal arches. The unique shade was ultimately decided upon over the yellow and red colors of the typical logo to avoid the colors distracting from the desert landscape.
