Are you among those craving for McDonald's burgers, french fries and other such items during lockdown? Here is good news for you! Now, quick-service restaurant operator McDonald's has announced that it has resumed delivery service 'McDelivery' in select states in north and east India.
McDonald's has also opened its 'take away' or 'Drive Thru Lanes' service in 17 of its restaurants located in Gurgaon, Noida, Punjab and Haryana, said a statement. Though McDonald's dine-in facilities remain closed as per government's direction, its 'McDelivery' is available at more than 50 restaurants across Delhi NCR, Punjab, Chandigarh, Rajasthan and Haryana, it added.
"McDonald's continues to closely monitor the developments and take appropriate measures as needed in its commitment to the safety of our customers, employees and the community at large," it said. Besides, McDonald's India is following the safety measures at its premises and has enhanced standards of hygiene and cleanliness even further and introduced several additional steps, it added.
Meanwhile, in a separate development, McDonald's revealed a plan to open all of its drive-thru restaurants in the UK in the coming weeks and has"not forgotten" about people in the north of England. The company reopened 39 restaurants in England and Ireland last week as it prepared to get back up and running with new safety measures in place, but all of the English locations were in the south east, reports the Metro newspaper.
In a message to customers, McDonald's Chief Executive Paul Pomroy said: "To help us test the new procedures and to slowly restart our supply chain, the pilot restaurants in the UK are all located close to our head office and to one of our distribution centres in the south east. "I promise I have not forgotten about any part of the UK or Ireland. We are taking our time to test the new ways of working in our restaurants, ensuring that we can continue to help our teams to work safely, and to get back to the communities we have proudly served for so many years."
