McDonald's to open all drive-thru restaurants by next Thursday

Last week, the fast food chain reopened 33 drive-thru sites but the company said it chose to close some lanes where demand "impacted local communities or the safety of our people or customers" due to long queues.

The chain said they would open the doors of every 1,019 of their stores by 4 June, but wouldn't confirm the exact day individual branches would reopen.

Over the last fortnight, employees, franchisees and suppliers have worked to implement new procedures to enable safe working.

Following a pilot at a limited number of restaurants, McDonald's will also be expanding McDelivery provision with another 75 restaurants planned to offer the service. "Our restaurant teams will carry out at least three daily litter picks in the areas around our restaurants, collecting all litter, not just McDonald's packaging".

The fast food chain reopened 33 drive-thru sites last week, including four in Ipswich, but the company also chose to close some lanes where demand "impacted local communities or the safety of our people or customers" due to long queues.

McDonald's Wisbech and Ely to reopen drive-thru before June 4

Popular fast-food company McDonald's has today announced it will be reopening all of its Drive Thrus across the United Kingdom next week.

The fast-food giant made the announcement in a statement on Wednesday.

Customers have been asked to cap spending at £25 - as they have been since the Drive-Thrus started to open - and use contactless payment "where possible".

It says it will work with gardai and local communities, after large queues and traffic disruption during the re-opening last week.

Face coverings, gloves, Perspex screens and new safety and hygiene processes mean it will look different, it will take a little longer to order at restaurants and they expect demand will be high. "As that guidance changes, we will continue to revisit and adapt our approach, but the safety and wellbeing of our employees and our customers will always be our number one priority".
