McDonald's to reintroduce walk-in takeaways as part of new pilot

Off-premise services remain operational.

McDonalds is now planning to reintroduce walk-in takeaways amidst the lockdown.

Following the roll of the Click & Serve programme, where orders are made ahead via an app and are then delivered to a designated parking bay, McDonald’s UK chief Paul Pomroy said a similar serving method will be piloted for those customers on foot in the “coming weeks.”

"This week, we will begin reviewing our safety measures for walk-in takeaway, working with third-party experts to assess any changes we could make to enhance the additional safety measures put in place since re-opening our restaurants last year,” he said in a message to customers.

The fast good giant stopped walk-in takeaway services across the UK following the announcement of a tougher lockdown. Drive-thru and delivery services remain available.
