McDonald's confirms four major changes in restaurants

McDonald’s has announced four big changes it has made inside its restaurants.

The fast food chain gradually increased its opening hours and menu options since reopening after lockdown.

And although most of it favourites are back, vegans and vegetarians are still missing some much-needed menu options.

The chain has been reviewing its coronavirus rules and restrictions on a monthly basis, to ensure all of its stores are Covid-safe.

Its CEO recently issued a statement to loyal customers explaining the new changes it is making inside its restaurants.

CEO of McDonald’s UK and Ireland, Paul Pomroy said: “As we’ve increased the services and menu items we’re offering, we have continued to prioritise enabling safe working for our people and safe visiting for our customers.

“This has meant changing some of our procedures and enhancing safety measures to continue to give you peace of mind.”

In the last month, McDonald’s has made these changes to its dine-in operation: 

  • Installed portable screens in our dining areas to provide additional protection for those of you choosing to dine-in 
  • Enabled our front of house teams to support customers in making use of Table Service and the My McDonald’s app when visiting 
  • Removed chairs and free-standing furniture to increase the size of walkways 
  • Installed portable screens in our dining areas to provide additional protection for those of you choosing to dine-in 

This week, McDonald’s has also been trialling Click, Park and Collect in 24 restaurants, enabling food to be delivered to your parked car via the My McDonald’s app. It has also introduced Apple Pay too.

Mr Pomroy said: “As government guidance continues to change and develop, we will work quickly to ensure our restaurants remain safe, clean and welcoming for you and your families.”

“We appreciate the feedback you’ve given us on the measures we’ve introduced, and will continue to ensure we serve the communities in which we operate safely and responsibly.”
