Finally, McDonald’s is coming to the North. After a number of trial openings in the glum South, Mcdonald’s has finally decided we can have the tasty goodness of their burgers back up in Yorkshire. Speaking exclusively to The Mirror about its plans to expand, McDonald’s has said that 975 more outlets will reopen to the public next week.
From 4 June 2020, 1,020 stores will be open on a drive-thru basis. A spokesperson revealed exclusively to The Mirror today its plans for reopening their drive-thrus and expanding delivery capabilities across the country, including outlets in Yorkshire, saying: “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 the last week, on occasion, we have taken the decision to close drive-thru lanes where demand has impacted local communities or the safety of our people or customers.”
“We will continue to work with local authorities and the police as we extend our reopening plans. With smaller teams, we will still be offering a limited menu over reduced hours, and we ask that you make contactless payments and limit your spend to £25.”
