McDonald's plans to add self-order kiosks to 1,000 stores each quarter

The global brand's modernisation programme will take place for the next eight to nine quarters.

Aiming to build a "better McDonald's", CEO Steve Easterbrook says the company plans to expand their number of self-order kiosks and the availability of their mobile order technology.

CNBC reports that the brand intends to upgrade 1,000 stores with self-order kiosks every quarter for the next eight to nine quarters. McDonald's has also been exploring delivery in the U.S. in an attempt to meet customer demand and changes in how consumers want to acquire their food.

"What we're finding is when people dwell more, they select more," CEO Steve Easterbrook told CNBC.

The company previously stated that 75% of the population in its top five markets — the U.S., France, the U.K., Germany and Canada — are within three miles of a McDonald's and 85% are within five miles of a chain.
