What restaurants are open Memorial Day 2021? Starbucks, McDonald’s, Chick-fil-A and more

If you’re looking to grab a bite to eat or a cup of coffee on Memorial Day, there are many options to choose from Monday.

Most Starbucks, McDonald’s and Dunkin’ locations will be open, along with IHOP, Denny’s and Waffle House restaurants nationwide. It’s often a franchise decision whether a restaurant opens on holidays, so check with your closest location before heading out.

The federal holiday, which commemorates military personnel who died in service, is seen as the unofficial start to summer and is also a popular day for cookouts.

On-demand services including Postmates, Grubhub, UberEats and DoorDash will deliver orders Monday for participating local and national restaurants.

According to a recent survey by Numerator, a data and tech company, 44% of consumers expect to return to normal holiday celebrations by Memorial Day. By the Fourth of July, that number rises to 59%, the survey found.

U.S. stock markets also will be closed Monday in observance of the holiday, along with banks and government offices. Like with other federal holidays, it’s considered a good time to buy a car, a mattress and shop other sales.
