McDonald’s spent a week testing its operations in closed restaurants during May, in preparation to reopen all restaurants for drive thru. Now June has arrived, the fast food chain is preparing to reopen all 900 of its branches. Express.co.uk reveals the list of drive thrus already open, and when the rest will open.
On announcing the initial openings, McDonald’s UK and Ireland CEO Paul Pomroy said: “Eight weeks ago, we took the decision to close our entire restaurant estate, an unprecedented decision taken in the best interests of our employees and customers.
“Over the last two months we have worked tirelessly to overhaul our operational procedures to enable our teams to return to work safely.
“I want to reiterate the restaurants, drive thrus and their car parks remain closed, we will only be serving food via Uber Eats this week.
“I want to thank the franchisees, managers and employees who are busy preparing for this reopening and wish them all the best for what will undoubtedly be a busy return to the communities in which they operate.”
When will all McDonalds drive thrus reopen?
Between Tuesday, June 2 and Thursday, June 4, McDonald’s is reopening all 924 of its drive thru restaurants in the UK and Ireland.
Some 75 branches will also be opening with an option for delivery through Uber Eats or Just Eat.
However, you won’t know your local McDonald’s is reopening until hours before.
The company will announce the opening of each restaurant in this way to control demand.
