The past few months have been tough on fast food fans.
But the past two weeks there’s been a light at the end of the (burger-less) tunnel, as McDonald’s has slowly been reopening stores – albeit with a limited menu.
But now it seems there’s more good news, as the fast food giant has announced that more menu items could be on the way very soon – including the return of the humble McMuffin.
A statement sent to Metro.co.uk from McDonald’s UK and Ireland CEO Paul Pomroy explained the chain plans to reintroduce the breakfast favourite soon.
It said: ‘Over the coming months, we will explore how to extend the menu, increase our opening hours and reintroduce those much-missed McMuffins at breakfast.’
However, it stressed that McDonald’s will do so very cautiously and guided by information from the government and health officials.
It added: ‘Working with our employees, franchisees and suppliers I want to ensure we only move forward to the next stage of reopening at the right time, when we are confident it is safe for us to do so.’
Currently the chain is operating with reduced staff and a limited menu in order to adhere to social distancing measures.
Other new measures include perspex screens in key locations in the kitchen and service areas, as well as protective (non-medical) equipment for staff – including gloves and face masks for customer and courier-facing positions
Last week, McDonald’s reopened more than 30 restaurants for drive thru, following on from the 15 restaurants it reopened for delivery on 13 May.
Although, all the locations are currently in the South East of England.
