    McDonald's closed more restaurants than it opened last year, including several locations in the Bay Area.

    BuzzFeed News reports the fast-food chain closed 154 restaurants in the United States in 2015 — and only opened 63 new franchises. That's compared to 2014, when 222 new McDonald's restaurants opened in America.

    In Walnut Creek, the city's last-standing McDonald's restaurant shuttered in January 2015, according to the San Jose Mercury News. The closure came just weeks after closing a location in downtown Martinez.

    A location on San Francisco's Van Ness Avenue followed suit, closing after 36 years of business. An outpost on Mission Street closed suddenly in June, the same month that a McDonald's on Stanyan Street in the Haight was named a "public nuisance" in a letter San Francisco City Attorney Dennis Herrera sent to McDonald's CEO Steve Easterbrook.

    In San Jose, a McDonald's on East San Carlos Street also closed in December.
