McDonald's space spinoff CosMc to open Texas store on solar eclipse

McDonald's space-themed spinoff restaurants, CosMc's, will open a new location in Texas on Monday, coinciding with another cosmic event: the total solar eclipse.

"The out-of-this-world beverage experience is officially landing in arlington to celebrate one of the biggest moments on the space calendar," the fast-food giant said in a news release announcing the new location that's just west of dallas.

The Arlington, Texas, location joins two other retro small-format restaurants that recently opened in Texas, including one that opened Tuesday in the Fort Worth suburb of Watauga.

The first CosMc's debuted in the Chicago suburb of Bolingbrook in December, drawing customers who waited in line for hours. The chain announced plans to open several test-and-learn locations across the Dallas and San Antonio metro areas in the coming months.
