McDonald's To Reopen 30 Further Stores For Drive-Thru Next Week

McDonald's has announced plans to reopen a further 30 restaurants from Wednesday 20 May which will offer drive-thru services - the first time this will be available since the chain closed its doors on 23 March.

Each car will be limited to a £25 order and will be encouraged to pay by contactless payment methods.

"The well-being of our employees, suppliers and delivery partners' couriers is my top priority and we will only extend our plans at a pace that enables us to create a safe working environment for our teams.

"In the last few days, updated government guidance has been shared in both the UK and Ireland, which makes it clear that takeaways and deliveries can operate.

"In line with government guidance, next week we will begin the next phase of reopening a further 30 pilot restaurants in the UK and Ireland, offering service through the Drive-Thru lane from Wednesday 20 May.

"Moving in step with government guidelines, we plan to reopen all our Drive-Thrus by early June. We will keep the restaurant locator on our website updated as our Drive-Thrus reopen over the coming weeks."

Paul also asked customers to 'bear with' the chain once it reopened, as it will take time before the restaurants can offer the same speed and range of options as it did pre-coronavirus.

Cars Queue Down The Street As McDonald's Restaurants Reopen For Drive-Thru

published at6 months ago

He said: "When your local Drive-Thru does reopen, it will be different. Our service will not be as quick as you might be used to, as we adjust to smaller teams and social distancing in our kitchens.

"We expect there will be some queues for some of our busier sites and our restaurants will look different, with Perspex screens at our Drive-Thru windows and employees wearing protective equipment.

"I ask that you continue to be supportive of and patient with our restaurant teams as we slowly and safely return. We are asking all of our employees to adapt to how our restaurants now work, and will only reopen at a pace that enables them to work safely.

"As we get accustomed to the new processes and procedures, we will look to reopen more restaurants, for longer hours and reintroduce more menu items. But only when I am confident we can do so whilst maintaining the new procedures we have introduced for the protection of our people."
