Remodeled restaurants offer new technology and a more fun, modern experience
McDonald's announced the company and its franchisees are investing approximately $320 million in New York throughout 2018 and 2019 on the construction and modernization of 360 McDonald's restaurants, transforming the customer experience inside and outside the restaurant. In total, McDonald's and franchisees are investing $6 billion to modernize most U.S. restaurants by 2020, including most restaurants in the Empire State.
With this significant construction investment, the transformed restaurants will feature:
•Modernized dining rooms with globally and locally inspired décor, new furniture and refreshed exterior designs.
•Enhanced customer experience with digital self-order kiosks that make ordering and paying for a meal easier. Kiosks empower guests to browse the menu, find options and tailor their meal just the way they want.
•Remodeled counters allow for new table service that offers guests the opportunity to relax while their food is being made.
•Bright and easy-to-read digital menu boards inside and at the drive-thru.
•New designated parking spots for curbside pick-up through mobile order and pay.
•Expanded McCafé counters and larger display cases.
"This is an exciting time for McDonald's and we're proud to be investing nearly $320 million to provide a new experience, look and feel for guests at 360 McDonald's locations across New York," said local McDonald's owner/operator Dave Freiman. "We are also pleased that our modernization supports local architecture, engineering and construction jobs across the great state of New York."
"With more than 630 locations across New York, McDonald's is an important provider of jobs and opportunity in our state," said Heather C. Briccetti, president and CEO of The Business Council of New York State Inc. "By investing $320M in 2018 and 2019 to modernize restaurants in our state, McDonald's is helping to create jobs and grow the economy. We will welcome this investment and McDonald's continued commitment to New York state."
In addition to the investments to modernize the restaurant, McDonald's has also introduced McDelivery with Uber Eats at more than 5,000 US restaurants.
