IT sounds like a whopper... but a Scottish McDonald's is introducing table service.

No more queuing for customers at the restaurant in Braehead - they can now sit back and be waited on by staff.

The change comes after successful trials in 14 McDonald's branches in England.

Franchisee Peter O’Keefe, who owns the Braehead branch, said: "I am really excited to announce the launch of table service in my Braehead restaurant.

"All of the new features have been introduced so that we can meet our customers evolving needs and table service is a great example of that.

"We know that for parents for example, it can sometimes be a stressful experience ordering at the till and carrying food while keeping an eye on children, so table service enables customers to order at the self-order kiosk and then sit down at a designated zone to be served their food.”

Mr O'Keefe says the change will create a more exciting experience for local customers.

Table service, which is also on offer at McDonald's in Springburn, comes with digital self-order kiosks and interactive tablets for customers to use while they dine.

Paul Pomroy, CEO of McDonald’s UK, said: “The trial of table service in 14 restaurants across England was so successful that I’m delighted to announce that we will be accelerating its roll out across all our newly transformed restaurants in 2016.

“We’ve listened to customer feedback and know we need to modernise further in order to move the McDonald’s experience on, and remain relevant to the lives of the customers we serve daily.

"Our converted restaurants will deliver a fast and easy experience, aided by digital and traditional ordering points, ensuring we continue to be enjoyed.”
