Customers at Markham Vale McDonald’s now have the option to have their food delivered straight to their table.

The fast food giant has introduced new digital kiosks, meaning people can sit and browse the menu, order their food and have a member of staff bring it to them.

Folk can still order at the till if they prefer.

McDonald's franchisee Walter Wright said: "We're thrilled with the transformation because we're committed to offering our customers' more choice and fast service.

"Technology has a huge role to play in all walks of life, including our customers' eating out experience, so the new tech we've introduced recognises the way people live their lives today.

"The response to the changes from my team has been very positive and they are enjoying the new ways of working.

"To ensure we continue to create an outstanding customer experience, I am also continuing to invest in my people through our industry-leading training programmes and career opportunities."

Paul Pomroy, chief executive at McDonald's UK, added: "Our converted restaurants like the one at Markham Vale will deliver a fast and easy experience, aided by digital and traditional ordering points ensuring we continue to be enjoyed by our customers."
