McDonald's to reopen all drive-throughs and expand delivery services
The UK's biggest fast-food giant is set to reopen all of its drive-thrus next week as high streets get back to business green light following two full months of lockdown restrictions.
McDonald's said 975 more outlets will reopen to the public, providing customers are able to keep in line with social distancing and safety guidelines.
"We can today announce that by 4 June, 1,020 of our restaurants will have reopened, either for drive-thru or McDelivery," a statement read.
"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."
