McDonald’s in Shoreham reopens today with new rules in place

A McDonald’s branch in Shoreham is reopening its doors today for the first time since the lockdown was introduced.

Wednesday, 24th June 2020, 12:47 pm

The branch at Shoreham’s Holmbush Centre will reopen for walk-in takeaway, with new measures in place to help keep employees and customers safe.

This follows a successful pilot in June.

With restaurant teams adjusting to new procedures to enable safe working and social distancing, stores will look a little different and things may take a little longer, a spokesman for the company said.

To help create a safe experience for everyone, McDonald’s has introduced a number of changes.

In order to help serve customers safely for takeaway, McDonald’s will provide clear signposting and floor-markings to create a one-way system around restaurants for customers and delivery partner couriers, where possible.

A limited number of people will be allowed inside restaurants to help customers and employees adhere to social distancing – this will vary depending upon the restaurant size and layout.

Customers will be welcomed inside when a space becomes available and will be asked to sanitise their hands at cleaning stations that have been introduced in all restaurants.

There will be fewer self-order screens switched on and those in use will be sanitised at least every 30 minutes.

Customers can also order via the My McDonald’s app.

Customers are encouraged to visit alone to collect their food where possible.

For those visiting with children, play areas and digital play areas will remain closed.

Restaurant seating areas, customer toilets and lifts will remain closed.

To help protect employees and other customers, McDonald’s asks their customers not to visit if they feel unwell.

The reduced menu on offer includes:

• Big Mac

• Quarter Pounder with cheese

• McChicken Sandwich

• Vegetable Delux

• Hamburger

• Cheeseburger

• Double Cheeseburger

• Chicken McNuggets

• Chicken Selects

• 20 Chicken McNuggets ShareBox
