McDonald’s to Invest $186M to Modernize 240 Restaurants Across Florida
CHICAGO — McDonald’s and its franchisees plan to invest approximately $186 million to modernize 240 restaurants located across Florida. The initiative is part of the fast food giant’s aim to invest $6 billion to modernize most of their U.S. restaurants by 2020. The transformed Florida restaurants will feature modernized dining rooms with globally and locally inspired décor; new furniture; refreshed exterior designs; digital self-order kiosks; remodeled counters; digital menu boards outside and at the drive-thru; designated parking spots for curbside pick-up through mobile order and pay; expanded McCafé counters; and larger display cases. The renovations will take place throughout this year and 2019. In addition to the investments to modernize the spaces, McDonald’s has also introduced its McDelivery service with Uber Eats at more than 5,000 U.S. restaurants. In June, McDonald’s opened its new $250 million headquarters in Chicago’s West Loop after 47 years in the suburbs. The fast food chain also opened its newly designed flagship restaurant in Chicago last week.
