Cork McDonald's reopens for dine-in meals

Following a successful pilot, McDonald’s will reopen its dine-in areas in Douglas, Midelton and Mallow Road from today following the successful reopening for takeaway and Drive Thru over the last seven weeks.

The Cork restaurants, along with 29 other restaurants nationwide have reopened dine-in service areas with a range of new safety measures in place as part of the latest phase of McDonald’s reopening plan which will see customers served via table service only with customers ordering directly to their table via the My McDonald’s App, at the till or kiosk.

In line with Government guidance, McDonald’s will be asking customers that choose to eat-in to leave their contact details by using their smartphone to either scan a QR code taking them to a dedicated webpage or visiting that webpage directly with the URL details provided on each table.

Customers will be asked to leave the name of the lead member and the number of people within their group, a phone number, the date and time of visit and the restaurant number.

Social distancing measures will also be in place and the number of customers allowed in at any one time will be carefully managed.

Customers have also been asked to use the hand sanitiser provided and follow the safety measures laid out in restaurants to help keep them, other customers and restaurant teams safe.

Clear floor-markings and signposting have been installed inside and outside restaurants to help enable social distancing, touchpoints including self-order screens, card readers and doors will be sanitised at least every 30 minutes, perspex screens have been installed in the kitchens, service areas and Drive-thru windows and fewer team members have been assigned to each shift.

Customers can check if their local restaurant is open for dine-in by visiting the McDonald’s restaurant locator.
