Fast food chain McDonald’s has announced the opening of the two-storey dual lane drive-thru restaurant at Knocknagoney in Northern Ireland.

The restaurant, which was designed and constructed by Elliott, has the capacity to accommodate 156 customers and offers mobile ordering.

Customers have the facility to browse a menu to place an order. They can also save their preferences for use in the future.

Additionally, the new Knocknagoney restaurant offers table service and digital features such as touch screen kiosks, reported.

It will also provide a host of new innovations for quick service and improved customer experience.

McDonald’s franchisee Des Lamph said: “The Knocknagoney restaurant is in a prime position close to the airport offering an accessible meeting point for both business and leisure visitors to Northern Ireland.

“Digital innovation is at the heart of the new restaurant featuring a host of customer facing technology including eight touch screen kiosks allowing customers to browse the menu, order their food and pay by card or contactless.”

With the opening of the new restaurant, McDonald’s has a total of 30 restaurants in Northern Ireland.

With regard to the restaurant, Elliott worked with McDonalds UK to evolve its design concept into volumetric units.

The building includes the dining area and staff areas that include kitchen and servery, offices as well as storage.

Steel-framed modules with a concrete floor were used to construct the building in addition to a range of architectural features.

Lamph further added: “New technology also extends through to the kitchen adapting how the food is prepared and served so that products are made specially to order.”
