Communities Minister Paul Givan visited the new-look McDonald’s restaurant at Sprucefield at the weekend to see for himself the result of the store’s £600,000 refurbishment project.

The revamped restaurant, which operates 24/7, now offers customers the option of having their food delivered directly to their table as part of an exciting new customer experience, which includes the introduction of a host of digital innovations.

The Minister, a DUP MLA for Lagan Valley, was impressed with the restaurant redesign, which includes striking new decor and a state-of-the-art kitchen.

Free-to-use electronic tablets have also been installed at a number of tables for customers who want to check their newsfeed and emails or play games.

Speaking about the new-look restaurant, franchisee John McCollum said: “Since we reopened last week, we have been receiving really positive feedback from our customers and we were delighted that Minister Givan had an opportunity to visit the restaurant and experience the new transformation for himself.

“Customers can now choose to order their food from our new digital kiosks or order at the till. The new pull forward window at the drive thru which enables two cars to be served at the same time means an even quicker service for customers. Everyone at the restaurant is really excited about our revamp and we are looking forward to welcoming all our fantastic customers back to see our new, exciting innovations.”
