NEW YORK (AP) - A group of patrons has reached agreement with a McDonald’s in Queens to avoid the restaurant during busy lunch hours.

The owner of the McDonald’s in Flushing had complained that the elderly Koreans spent all day nursing one cup of coffee. The owner said the restaurant was losing business because customers couldn’t find seats.

The New York Times (http://nyti.ms/1kTpZWL ) says the group met with the owner on Sunday in the office of Assemblyman Ron Kim. They agreed that the group could sit at the restaurant for as long as they wanted except during the hours of 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Kim said on Monday that the patrons would visit community senior centers during those hours.

The owner agreed to post signs in Korean and Chinese explaining the policy.
