Food Chains Adding Safety Measures Before Reopening Dining Areas

Food Chains Adding Safety Measures Before Reopening Dining Areas”

"I can today announce we will pilot reopening six drive thru restaurants in the Dublin area on Wednesday, 20th May and we will confirm the locations next week", Paul Pomroy, CEO of McDonald's United Kingdom and Ireland, said in a statement on Tuesday.

As cities and states begin to ease COVID-19 restrictions, McDonald's is preparing to open its dining rooms back up, but things will be a little different. Dining room and Play Places will remain closed.

The Dublin restaurants will begin serving customers by drive-thru and are opened on a pilot basis.

McDonalds will also cap spending at £25 per vehicle and is encouraging customers to use contactless methods wherever possible.

Chief Executive Paul Pomroy says the branches, which were shut in March following the government's implementation of lockdown, will be staffed by smaller teams.

Despite those measures, McDonald's officials have not said when dining areas will reopen, saying only that it "will make reopening decisions that are right for the local communities and help ensure restaurant crew and customers feel safe and welcome". "We will continue to keep you updated via email, our website and our social media channels".

Together with our franchisees, we proudly employ almost 100,000 people from coast-to-coast, and more than 90 per cent of McDonald's 1,400 Canadian restaurants are locally owned and operated by independent entrepreneurs.

McDonald's and other fast-food chains have done considerable better than sit-down restaurants in the coronavirus outbreak thanks to their drive-thru sales.

The new set of standards involves accommodating social distancing by closing some seating and more frequent cleaning of high touch surfaces - like tables.

"We have several restaurants that will [be] stress testing new procedures and equipment, which can then be scaled to other restaurants".

"The guide also shows how complex - and expensive - reopening dining areas will be and raises questions about the cost structure of that business for franchisees while concerns about the pandemic remain", she continues.
