McDonald’s created a ‘virus-proof’ restaurant in Europe

As McDonald’s prepares to reopen dining rooms in the US, as well as restaurants around the world that shuttered during the coronavirus pandemic, the company is trying to craft a “virus-proof” design. McDonald’s has already changed nearly 50 processes, the representative said, including wellness checks, installing protective barriers, social distancing floor decals, and providing thermometers to restaurants. The company recently tested new features at a location in the Dutch city of Arnhem, including meal trolleys and designated waiting spots to separate customers.

McDonald’s said that it might roll out table service, serving customers on trolleys where they can pick up their order instead of directly interacting with employees. The McDonald’s includes new safety features such as meal trolleys and designated waiting spots to separate customers. Restaurants have not yet reopened in the Netherlands, but if they do, customers will need to stay 1.5 meters or 5 feet away from each other.

McDonald’s says it could introduce table service, with burgers and fries wheeled to customers on trolleys from which they can pick up their orders. Other new features would include hand-washing stations at the entrance and a host behind a plastic screen showing customers their place in line. Many restaurant owners in the Netherlands fear social distancing will simply put them out of business. But McDonald’s expects its new set-up will work at 180 larger restaurants out of its 252 franchises in the country.

“On average this will allow us to serve around 66% of our normal number of customers,” Koekkoek said. “We don’t expect reopening to be allowed before June. But even then, we will move in steps. Readjusting 180 restaurants is a tall order. “About three quarters of McDonald’s 39,000 restaurants worldwide were operational as of Thursday, including almost all its nearly 14,000 outlets in the United States, where drive-through are common.
