McDonald’s Announces National Table-Side Service

Looks like your future visits to Mcdonald’s might get just a little more personal. The burger chain announced Thursday, according to Business Insider, that they’ll be implementing table-side service.

This means, you no longer have to stand in line at the chain’s counter to order, step aside, and wait for your food to be called while you peruse through email.

Available at all 14,000 McDonald’s locations in the United States, customers can now place orders when they walk into the restaurant lobby though digital kiosks. After they figure out what size Big Mac they prefer to satiate their appetites with, they’ll have the option of getting their food delivered to them or picking it up at the counter.

Currently, only 500 locations in the US are offering this service.

McDonald’s has officially taken an entire step of human interaction away from patrons. For those looking for a quick meal, this could easily be a blessing. However, customers will still have the option of ordering up front and interacting with McDonald’s employees.

The company states that they are trying to make the “roll out” happen as soon as possible, though with no hard deadline announced. Until then, it’s burger grilling businesses as usual.
