A town’s McDonald’s restaurant is expected to be shut for just under two months while it undergoes a ‘digital transformation’. The Congleton branch closed on Tuesday to allow the work to take place with plans including self-service kiosks along with a ‘click and collect’ app. The restaurant, off the Clayton Bypass, is the final of franchisee’s Eddie’s Leligdowicz’s restaurants to be ‘digitally converted’. Eddie Leligdowicz, who employs 1,420 staff across the Cheshire, Staffordshire and Derbyshire, said: “I’m looking forward to being able to bring my new restaurant to Congleton and would like to thank our local customers for bearing with us while the transformation is taking place. “I’m confident the new store will offer visitors to the restaurant more choice as to how to they order and am particularly excited to introduce the ‘click and collect’ app to my customers.” Bosses say the self-service kiosks mean customers can pick their meals faster while there will also be table service. Just last month Cheshire East Council approved plans from McDonald’s for an extra drive-thru lane. The planned expansion will create enough room for vehicles to queue side-by-side when drivers place their orders. The application came to stop the need for staff to go outside with hand-held computers to take orders during busy periods. The restaurant is set to re-open on December 4. McDonald’s say the date could change.
