After an outdoor and indoor renovation of McDonald’s, the food chain held a ribbon cutting Thursday morning. Perhaps the highlight of the new store is the addition of two kiosks to allow customers to place their own order.
Members of the Chamber of Commerce and customers took part of the grand re-opening of McDonald’s, located at 1527 S. Division St., as the store transitions to ‘Experience of the Future’ with a ribbon cutting.
The transition has brought in two kiosks that allow customers to order from the touch screen kiosk and have their order brought to them.
The Guthrie location is now only the third McDonald’s in the state to showcase the kiosks.
Customers can order at the touch screens and then pick up a number with a digital locator, which will allow employees to serve them at their tables.
The touch-screen technology is meant to speed up the ordering process and give people more control over customizing their food, while reducing opportunities for human error.
Analysts expect the kiosks will help boost McDonald’s sales, in part because they will help increase efficiency in restaurants.
In addition to the upgrades on the inside, the exterior of the building was also updated to the new modern style.
The Guthrie location was purchased from a Tulsa franchise in 2015. The company now owns 20 stores throughout Oklahoma.
