McDonald's trialling all-you-can-eat fries
Ever wondered what the McDonald's of the future might look like?
Burger lovers in St Joseph, Missouri, will soon be getting a sneak peek, with the opening of a new 6,500 square foot branch boasting all manner of offerings you won't find at your local high street McDonald's - for a few years at least.
The innovation garnering the most interest so far is the promise of bottomless french fries: order once, and you'll be able to eat as many as you like.
The new restaurant will also be inviting visitors to customise their burger or desert orders and there'll be no more waiting around at the counter for your food.
"There really are hundreds of different choices to build the burger of your dreams," said franchisee Chris Habiger. "Once you've placed your order, you can find your seat because we'll bring it out to you."
The St Joseph restaurant will have a modern play area for children featuring interactive light board tables and tabletop video games. There will also be digital kiosks for placing your food order, and couches and arm chairs for "casual dining".
"Today's customers seek a comfortable and inviting atmosphere," Mr Habiger said. "So we're committed to providing a modern look and feel to this restaurant."
