McDonald's Has Revealed The List Of All Its Restaurants Reopening Today
Those who have gone months without their nuggets and Big Mac are one step closer to bliss: McDonald's has officially reopened another 497 restaurants for Drive Thru and 43 restaurants for McDelivery as of today.
There's too many restaurants to list here, but you can check out the full catalogue of the branches opening across the UK and Ireland by clicking this link. Is your local on the list?
The news comes as part of a staged reopening by the fast food giant. At the beginning of the week, McDonald's announced it would be relaunching 1,019 of its 1,249 restaurants between Tuesday 2nd and Thursday 4th June.
This means that if your local isn't on the list today, there should be another 550 opening tomorrow (taking into consideration the 44 pilot restaurants that opened last month), so don't despair - your turn will come soon!
McDonald's did add: "We are glad to be back but it will look a little different and may take a little longer, so please bear with us."
The chain outlined the measures it is taking to ensure social distancing and the safety of customers and staff during the reopening period.
This includes fewer employees in the kitchens to enable staff to social distance, a limited menu (sans breakfast or Shakes for now), reduced opening hours (11am-10pm), encouraging customers to use contactless payment and a capped spend of £25.
In a statement on Monday, a McDonald's spokesperson said of the phased reopening: "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."
Restaurants opened at 11am, so lucky fans could literally have a Maccies on their laps within the hour. Go, go, go!
