Grand Re-Opening of McDonald’s Willimantic



New technology, menu items & level of service enable a more fun and modern guest experience
GLASTONBURY, CT (October 18, 2017) – The McDonald’s of Willimantic located at 1464 West Main Street will invite guests to experience McDonald’s in a new and unexpected way, with a new level of choice, engagement and service. The changes are reflective of a new restaurant model that has been successfully rolled out in more than 2,600 international McDonald’s restaurants and put more choice and control in the hands of guests by evolving how they order, what they order, how they pay and how they are served.
For those looking to order at their own pace, Willimantic McDonald’s new digital self-order kiosks make ordering and paying for a meal easy. Kiosks empower guests to browse the menu, find new options and tailor their meal just the way they want. Among the new menu options include McDonald’s Signature Crafted recipes, which allow customers to craft their perfect sandwich by selecting 100% beef or juicy grilled or crispy chicken, picking an artisan roll or sesame seed bun, and choosing from one of the three new signature recipes – Sriracha, Pico Guacamole or Sweet BBQ Bacon. All Signature Crafted recipes include premium ingredients like guacamole made with Hass avocados; crispy Applewood smoked bacon and grilled onions.
Guests’ orders are delivered to tables by McDonald’s crew members, allowing customers to relax and enjoy a more custom dining experience. McDonald’s owner/operators and restaurant teams in Connecticut and Western Massachusetts are placing a higher emphasis on hospitality by focusing on greeting customers, assisting with technology and ensuring a clean, welcoming environment.
