Today, McDonald’s announced that the company and its franchisees are investing approximately $205 million in the state of Michigan throughout 2018 and 2019 on the construction and modernization of approximately 400 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 Michigan.
“We’re working to build a better McDonald’s across the state of Michigan, and we’re proud of the investment that we’re making in our neighborhoods long-term,” said Laura Percival, who owns and operates several McDonald’s restaurants in southeast Michigan. “Our modernization not only brings a new, convenient, comfortable experience for our customers, but it also supports local architecture, engineering and construction jobs across our 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 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 & Pay
- Expanded McCafé counters and larger display cases
In addition to the investments to modernize the restaurant, McDonald’s has also introduced McDelivery with Uber Eats at more than 5,000 U.S. restaurants.
