32 McDonald’s restaurants across Ireland reopen

Fast food chain McDonald’s reopens for dine-in following successful pilot.

Following a successful pilot McDonald’s will reopen dine-in areas from today (Wednesday 22 July) in 32 of its restaurants nationwide, including at its flagship restaurant on Grafton Street in Dublin.

McDonald’s will reopen dine-in service areas with a range of new safety measures which will see customers served via table service only.

This follows the successful reopening for takeaway, Drive Thru and Delivery over the last seven weeks.

New rules to chew over

Customers will be able to order directly to their table via the My McDonald’s App, at the till or kiosk.

In line with Government guidance, McDonald’s will be asking customers that choose to eat-in to leave their contact details by using their smart phone to either scan a QR code taking them to a dedicated webpage or visiting that webpage directly with the URL details provided on each table.

Customers will be asked to leave the name of the lead member and the number of people within their group, a phone number, the date and time of visit and the restaurant number (identified on each table sticker).

Social distancing measures will also be in place and, to prevent congestion, the restaurant will carefully manage the number of customers inside.

When arriving, customers will be asked to use the hand sanitiser provided and follow the safety measures laid out in restaurants to help keep them, other customers and restaurant teams safe.

As well as sanitiser at the entrance, clear floor-markings and signposting will enable social distancing.

Touchpoints like self-ordering screens, card readers and door swill be sanitised at least every 30 minutes.

Perspex screens have been installed in the kitchens, service areas and Drive-thru windows.

McDonald’s is also assigning fewer people on each shift.
