McDonald's restaurant at Meridian Point in Cleethorpes to close for 'digital makeover'

By Grimsby Telegraph | Posted: 29 Mar 2017

A Cleethorpes McDonald's restaurant will close for a month soon as it undergoes a major refurbishment.

The outlet at Meridian Point Retail Park is set to be transformed with the introduction of touchscreen self-order kiosks which allow customers to browse the menu, look at nutritional information and personalise their meals.

Earlier in the year, McDonald's was given the green light to enlarge the dining area and replace the drive-thru booths, as well as create an external children's play area.

An external covered canopy will also be erected and the exterior walls are to be recladded.

The fast-food chain has confirmed the restaurant will close its doors on May 15 before reopening on June 14 while the upgrade work is completed.

A spokesperson for McDonald's said: "The future changes have been designed with changing customer needs in mind, and the dedicated dining room hosts will ensure the process is as quick and easy as possible.

"The introduction of these changes also means that McDonald's crew are able to widen their skill set. More are able to be in front of the counter, serving customers and helping them navigate the new digital menu boards for the first time ever."

The modernisation, which also introduces table service to McDonald's restaurants for the first time, has already been carried out at the firm's restaurants in Grimsby Road, Cleethorpes, and Birchin Way, Grimsby.

In November, George Michniewicz, franchisee and managing director of Kingston Restaurants Ltd, said the Grimsby town centre and Laceby branches would also be updated "before the early part of 2018".
