McDonald’s reopens 40 restaurants for drive thru today

It comes as McDonald’s is to reopen 15 of its restaurants in the South tomorrow for delivery only.

McDonald’s is opening a few – for delivery and then drive-thru next week –  to test how to do so safely.

They want to ensure in the trials that staff, delivery drivers and customers in cars are not at risk of catching coronavirus.

McDonald’s will also cap spend at £25 for each McDelivery order and each drive-thru car to avoid big orders that would cause delays, and will “encourage” contactless payment.

Bosses are initially focused on delivery and drive-thru lanes, which can be done more safely than customers coming into branches.

The drive-thru trial – phase two – is to be in the south of England and Ireland.

There were complaints last week that the 15 for delivery were mostly in and around London.

But McDonald’s said for trials it needs to have them near one distribution centre to more easily monitor them.

It will then decide whether to focus on rolling out delivery or drive-thrus – or both more slowly – as part of phase three and four of its reopening plans.
