ST. JOSEPH, Mo. – McDonald’s is jumping off the healthy eating bandwagon in a really big way. First, the chain is testing all-you-can-eat French Fries in Missouri; additionally they’re removing healthier wraps from many of their menus across the country to focusing more on all-day breakfast.
“A lot of people who eat at restaurants aren’t interested in health and wellness. You’ve got to give the people what they want,” Edward Jones analyst Jack Russo told Bloomberg.
Another part of the test includes customers placing orders at kiosks, including hundreds of customizable burger and dessert options. When the order’s ready, it will be brought to the table. This is supposed to speed up the whole process.
The new kiosk system means this McDonald’s won’t need as many cashiers, but franchise owner Chris Habiger says he still plans on hiring 85 employees for this location.
The St. Joseph location is set to open in July.
