McDonald’s Tuesday announced the company and its franchisees are investing about $205 million on the construction and modernization of some 400 McDonald’s restaurants in 2018 and 2019 in Michigan.
“We’re working to build a better McDonald’s across the state of Michigan, and we’re proud of the investment that we’re making in our neighborhoods long-term,” says Laura Percival, owner of several McDonald’s locations in southeast Michigan.
“Our modernization not only brings a new, convenient, comfortable experience for our customers, but it also supports local architecture, engineering, and construction jobs across our state.”
Transformed restaurants will include modernized and redecorated dining rooms and exteriors, self-order kiosks, remodeled counters that allow for table service that offers guests the opportunity to relax while their food is being made, new menu boards inside and outside, designated parking spots for curbside pickup through mobile order and pay options, and expanded McCafé counters and larger display cases.
“I appreciate McDonald’s investment in communities across Michigan,” says Michigan Governor Rick Snyder. “This major investment further supports the state’s strong agriculture industry and business growth, while also providing job opportunities to Michiganders.”
McDonald’s has also introduced McDelivery with Uber Eats at more than 5,000 U.S. locations. The company and its franchisees are investing $6 billion to modernize most U.S. restaurants by 2020. McDonald’s is headquartered in Chicago.
