Revealing the reopening plans on Friday, CEO Paul Pomroy shared a statement on the brand’s website outlining the measures the chain would be taking in order to keep customers and staff safe.
As well as trialling in-store changes such as perspex screens and personal protective equipment for all staff including non-medical grade masks, the chain is adapting its menu to help teams cope.
That means no McDonald’s breakfasts will be available to customers when the stores reopen next week.
In the statement, Pomroy said: “We will return with much smaller teams in our restaurants and as a result will be returning with a limited menu. This will support social distancing in our kitchens, whilst still providing many McDonald’s iconic menu items.”
