A WESTON-SUPER-MARE fast food restaurant has closed its doors to undergo a £500,000 renovation.

The Regent Street branch of McDonald’s is in the process of having more seating and new digital technology installed, which will change the way customers order their meals.

The amount of seating in the restaurant will increase from 120 to 190 seats, while state-of-the-art self-service kiosks will enable customers to order their food directly.

Diners will be able to browse the restaurant’s menu and look at the nutritional information of each product, before paying by card and heading straight to a designated area of the counter to collect their food.

Free-to-use electronic tablet devices have also been installed at some tables, meaning customers can play games or check emails while they enjoy their meal.

The restaurant will reopen on November 26. It is owned by franchisee Tim Lamb, who began his career 33 years ago and owns five restaurants across Somerset.

Mr Lamb said: “Staying ahead of customer expectations is vital and the new technology we’re introducing in this restaurant recognises the way people live their lives today.

“By making our seating area three times larger, we hope it will help make the dining experience at the restaurant even more enjoyable and allow our customers to make the most of all of the digital features being introduced.”

McDonald’s UK’s chief executive officer Paul Pomroy said: “We are confident the investment we are making will bring new and exciting changes to McDonald’s in Weston and across the rest of the country.

“We know we need to modernise further and converted restaurants, like this one in Weston, will deliver a fast and easy experience for our customers.”
