Karachi: Shell Pakistan is expanding its non-fuel retail capabilities by leveraging its partnership with McDonald’s. The two major brands announced that several McDonald’s drive-thru outlets will be built at selected Shell fuel stations across the country. The ground breaking ceremony of the first project in this regard was held at Shell’s Askari Filling Station in Gulistan-e-Jauhar.
