Additionally, McDonald's said it plans to remodel 80 per cent of its existing stores in China by 2013, swapping out the red and yellow decor for a more European-style bistro design, the WSJ said.

McDonald's Corp., which operates 32,000 restaurants in about 100 countries, including about 1,100 in China, has been in China for 20 years.
