Through the power of the McDonald's brand, our teams have benefited from their loyalty and support. We are proud to present them with this award. It is well deserved."
R & K Spero Company is excited for some of the changes McDonald’s is initiating to enhance their customers’ experiences. Relaunching their mobile app will be the first of multiple changes. This application will allow customers to create an order 24 hours prior to their desired pickup time. In addition, the app will allow customers to pay using their devices and pick up their order either inside the restaurant or in the drive thru.
The McDonald’s establishments will also add digital menu boards to their drive thru’s at their restaurants.
