McDonald’s at Riversway is set to close for one month while it undergoes renovations to bring it on a par with other restaurants around the country.


The store will close at 9pm on Sunday, June 26 before reopening on Wednesday, July 27.

The drive-thru facility at the restaurant has already closed.

The renovations will see the store given the same kiosk system seen at many other stores where you can place your order on a screen before you get to the counter.

They aim to give the restaurants a more upmarket feel with the new method of serving helping to increase productivity.

McDonald’s franchisee Nigel Dunnington said: “We’re really looking forward to re-opening the transformed restaurant.

“Technology has a huge role to play in all walks of life, including our customers’ eating out experience, and the new technology we’re introducing recognises the way people live their lives today.

“The addition of table service enables customers to order at the self-order kiosk and then sit down at a designated zone to get served. From mums coming in with their kids, to people having a working lunch, I expect the feedback to be positive.”

There will also be tablets installed on the tables for surfing the web and playing games when eating.

Table service will be an option for customers and the recognisable play area at the store will also receive a face lift.

The store will then continue to be open 24 hours a day when it reopens at the end of July.
