Savannah Business Journal Staff Report

August 15, 2018 - McDonald’s recently announced that the company and its franchisees are investing approximately $170 million in Georgia throughout 2018 and 2019 on the construction and modernization of 340 McDonald’s restaurants, transforming the customer experience inside and outside the restaurant. In total, McDonald’s and franchisees are investing $6 billion to modernize most U.S. restaurants by 2020, including most restaurants in Georgia.  
With this significant construction investment, the transformed restaurants will feature:  

  • Modernized dining rooms with globally and locally inspired décor, new furniture and refreshed exterior designs
  • Enhanced customer experience with digital self-order kiosks that make ordering and paying for a meal easier. Kiosks empower guests to browse the menu, find options and tailor their meal just the way they want
  • Remodeled counters allow for new table service that offers guests the opportunity to relax while their food is being made 
  • Bright and easy to read digital menu boards inside and at the drive-through
  • New designated parking spots for curbside pick-up through mobile order and pay
  • Expanded McCafé counters and larger display cases

“This is an exciting time for McDonald’s and we’re proud to be investing nearly $170 Million to provide a new experience, look and feel for guests at 340 McDonald’s locations across Georgia,” said McDonald’s Owner/Operator Vicki Chancellor. “We are also pleased that our modernization supports local architecture, engineering and construction jobs across the great state of Georgia.”
“As a Fortune 500 company and a worldwide leader in the food service industry, McDonald’s already employs thousands of Georgians across the state,” said Georgia Governor Nathan Deal. “This modernization initiative will help to create and sustain even more local jobs as McDonald’s works to enhance customers’ experiences and improve opportunities for employees. By investing approximately $170 million in 340 locations, McDonald’s will use our pro-business climate to strengthen its economic impact in our state while providing meaningful investments for many Georgia communities.”
In addition to the investments to modernize the restaurant, McDonald’s has also introduced McDelivery with Uber Eats at more than 5,000 US restaurants.
