McDonald’s to reopen some UK stores for home delivery

McDonald’s had closed its 1,300 UK stores on March 23 to negate the spread of Covid-19, a decision which saw meat and dairy supplies redirected into retail markets.

 

Follows moves from rival fast food companies, such as Nando’s and Burger King, McDonald’s will introduce phased reopenings while the lockdown continues, and will see smaller staff teams and a limited menu on offer.

 

Paul Pomroy, chief executive officer at McDonald’s, said: “I want to apologise in advance if our first wave of reopened restaurants does not serve your area.

 

"Rest assured, we are working hard to reopen more restaurants, but I am adamant this must be at the right pace with the wellbeing of our employees, suppliers and customers front of mind.”

Welcome

 

The decision will come as welcome news to the 16,000 farmers supplying McDonald’s providing an estimated 50,000 tonnes of UK & Irish beef per annum.

 

Nick Allen, chief executive of British Meat Processing Association, said: "While initially McDonald’s announcement will not have a massive impact on the market it is a very welcome step in the right direction.

 

"I am sure everyone in the supply chain looks forward to having McDonalds back in action and it gives hope that the worst is over."
