McDonald's Is Reopening For Drive Thrus And McDelivery This Week

This week McDonald's will be reopening restaurants for Drive Thrus and McDelivery once again following the coronavirus pandemic.

In fact, a further 261 drive-thru restaurants have re-opened as of today - Thursday 4 June.

On top of that, another eight locations have started offering a McDelivery service as of today, too.

The fast food chain opened it's window hatches(doesn't have the same ring) to customers at 665 locations for Drive Thru and a further 65 restaurants for McDelivery on 2 and 3 June.

There will be new measures in place for staff and customers which include:

  • Fewer employees in the kitchens to enable the teams to social distance and work safely
  • Have a limited menu (no breakfast or Shakes for now) and will open for reduced hours (11am-10pm)
  • Encourage customers to use contactless payment methods and cap their spend at £25
  • For those visiting the Drive Thrus, customers can browse the menu, order and pay ahead using the My McDonald's App - we'll start preparing your order when you're near the restaurant

Announcing the development, which is being rolled out this week, a McDonald's spokesperson said: "We can today announce that by 4th June, 1,019 of our restaurants will have reopened, either for Drive Thru or McDelivery.

"This means every Drive Thru in the UK and Ireland will reopen between Tuesday and Thursday next week and we will start to expand the availability of McDelivery too.

"This is only possible following the hard work of the teams in our 44 pilot restaurants. Over the last fortnight, our employees, franchisees and suppliers have worked tirelessly to implement new procedures to enable safe working so that we can now help all parts of the UK and Ireland to enjoy the return of the Big Mac."


In its statement, McDonald's also asked for customers' 'patience and support' as restaurants open with fewer employees, who will have to 'adjust to the new ways of working'.

McDonald's also said it is continuing to review these measures as reopening is rolled out.
