FAIRBURY, NE — A fast food restaurant in Fairbury will be closing its doors next week. 

News Channel Nebraska has learned employees of the McDonald's in Fairbury have been notified the location's last day open will be August 30. The closing of the location is reportedly due to the structure of the building, which is no longer considered "up to standards" of the restaurant chain, according to one employee. 

According to the company's website, the minimum criteria for a location includes being on a lot of roughly 45,000 square feet with a building area of at least 4,500 square feet. The building also needs to be a minimum of 23' 4" and adhere to all local building codes. 

Nebraska property records show the lot in Fairbury is 10,000-20,000 square feet. The building, constructed in 1982, is just over 2,000 square feet. 

News Channel Nebraska reached out to McDonald's for a comment on the matter Wednesday afternoon and has not received a response at the time of publishing. 

Once the location closes, Beatrice will house the only McDonald's location within 40 miles of Fairbury.
