McDonald’s to offer ‘click and serve’ option so customers can swerve drive-thrus
McDonald’s is launching a new “click and serve” option so customers can skip drive-thru queues.
The handy function is being rolled out this week and can be accessed via the My McDonald’s app
After customers input their orders, they will be given a signposted bay to park in.
Maccies staff will then deliver their food directly to the car window – simple!
Contact is free via the app and employees will be wearing face coverings as they drop the meals off.
Takeaway bags will also be placed on trays so punters and staff members can avoid touching.
The new service acts as a nostalgic nod to how McDonald’s started in the 1940.
Decades ago, the first ever restaurant in San Bernardino, California, brought-in carhop servicing and delivered McDonald’s orders to customers cars.

Customers should note that McDonald's has changed its guidelines since the three tier system was introduced.
McDonald's UK chief executive Paul Pomroy said: "The measures and procedures introduced since we reopened in the summer are regularly and robustly assessed by third party organisations to make sure our employees are able to work and you are able to visit safely.
"We have worked hard to ensure our restaurants can continue safely serving you and I am grateful for the support so many of you have shown as we have adjusted to these procedures."
Tier 1 punters can dine in until 10pm but must follow social distancing and mask guidelines, as well as the rule of six.
Tier 2 customers are able to dine in too – but only with members of their household.
Brits in Tier 3 can't eat inside restaurants but are allowed to make use of delivery and drive-thru services.
