Three McDonald’s restaurants in The Peoples Republic of Cork will be the first few in the country to pilot a new table service scheme, involving staff bringing food to the customers in their seats.
The new service is being trialled in just 12 outlets nationwide and is turning the traditional fast food model on its head.
The coming months will see the Ballincollig, Douglas and Kinsale Road (near Musgrave Park) branches allowing customers to use a self-service kiosk to make their selection, pay by card and then take their seat.
Once their food is ready, staff will deliver their order to their table.
The company said the aim of the new initiative is to take the hassle out of ordering for both busy parents, who are juggling kids, shopping bags and whatever else they could be dealing with, as well as groups of friends who just can’t wait to catch up on each other’s lives.
We're looking forward to seeing how the trend develops, and what is to come next for the fast food giant.
