16 new jobs at revamped Belfast city centre McDonald's

By Staff Reporter

McDonald's Belfast city centre restaurant has reopened following a £750,000 investment and the creation of 16 new jobs.

The Donegall Place branch of the fast food chain has been revamped with new technology, including a touch-screen ordering system that is being rolled out across its restaurants.

The system includes special kiosks that allow customers to browse the menu, order their food and pay by card or contactless payment.

Free-to-use tablet computers have also been installed at a number of tables for customers who want to keep on top of the news or their emails.

Franchisee Paul Connan, who operates the Donegall Place restaurant, said: "Located in the heart of the city centre, the Donegall Place restaurant reflects the digital transformation that is at the heart of our new look.

"The technology allows us to deliver even quicker service to our customers, and the restaurant has been revamped to seat 190 customers.

"As a local businessman, I am committed to investing within the local community, so I am delighted to offer our customers an even better experience at the restaurant.

"Our continued investment in the business enables us to expand our workforce and provide people with a valuable opportunity to work as part of the McDonald's team."

The burger chain is spending millions adding touch screen ordering systems as part of a major revamp across its outlets.

The first store to use the technology was in Bangor.
