I’m lovin it: McDonald’s to reopen Kilkenny restaurant next week
Kilkenny’s McDonald’s drive-thru restaurant will reopen next week, the company has announced.
After opening six restaurants in Dublin last week to trail working at reduced capacity and within Covid-19 guideline, the global fast-food giant has announced they are set to open all their 51 drive-thru restaurants in Ireland between Tuesday and Thursday of next week.
That’s good news for Big Mac lovers as the restaurant on the Hebron Road Roundabout in Kilkenny City will be open for business.
The company is also looking to expand the rollout of their McDelivery service around the country, but it is not yet clear if Kilkenny is part of these plans.
In a statement released by McDonald’s this morning, spokesperson for the chain said the safety of their staff and of the public is still the number one priority as they reopen their restaurants.
“With fewer employees working in our kitchens and service areas, our teams will still need your patience and support as they continue to adjust to the new ways of working.
“Face coverings, gloves, Perspex screens and new safety and hygiene processes mean it will look different, it will take a little longer and as we’ve seen in the pilot restaurants, we expect demand will be high.
The reopened stores will have reduced opening hours, a reduced menu, contactless payments only, and a limit on spending of €30.
