Mcdonald's confirms re-opening date for delivery- but only at handful of UK branches
Mcdonald’s has unveiled plans to re-open its doors after shutting all sites due to the coronavirus outbreak.
The fast food giant, which closed to diners in March, announced today (Friday, May 1) it would re-open 15 UK restaurants at locations to be announced next week.
The branches will open on May 13 for delivery only and offering a limited menu- following in the footsteps of chains such as KFC, Nando’s and Domino's.
Paul Pomroy, McDonald’s chief executive officer for the UK and Ireland, said: “When we return it will be different as we all adjust to this new normal.
“I want to apologise in advance if our first wave of reopened restaurants does not serve your area.
“Rest assured, we are working hard to reopen more restaurants, but I am adamant this must be at the right pace with the wellbeing of our employees, suppliers and customers front of mind.”
