Big Changes Coming to Alabama McDonald’s Locations
I can remember, as a kid, going to McDonald's in my hometown of Gadsden. Our favorite location was the one located on Rainbow Drive across from the Gadsden Mall.
As a child, the Happy Meal was what I got every time just for the toy that was inside. I can remember playing in the McDonald’s playground, going down the slide no matter how hot it was. Believe me - there is nothing that burns like those slides in the summertime.
We all have memories of McDonald’s, but something is about to change at the home of the “Big Mac.” In an email to AP News, the Chicago-based restaurant chain has announced it will be phasing out its self-service drink stations.
The company stated in the email its goal for phasing out the self-service drink stations is to encourage consistency for customers and crew members. The company has seen an increase in digital and online delivery sales since the pandemic. This could be a reason for the company’s move to phase out self-service. All the self-service stations are scheduled to be phased out by 2032.
