FAST food store, McDonald’s is now officially back in Barry.

Customers can use the drive thru, take away and eat in, at the Ty Verlon restaurant and now benefit from the introduction of the McDonald’s McDelivery.

Brought to the area via Uber Eats, customers living within 1.5 miles of the restaurant on the Ty Verlon Industrial Estate can get their favourite McDonald’s menu items delivered straight to their door, by ordering through the Uber Eats app.

All Uber Eats couriers will be wearing masks to comply with new Government policy.

The news comes as McDonald’s announces that more than 63 million customers have ordered a McDelivery in the UK alone since its launch in 2017.

Local franchisee, David Balcombe said: “My team and I are delighted to be bringing McDelivery to Barry.

"Even before lockdown we were always working towards making our customers’ dining experience easier and more convenient – including self-service kiosks and table service.

"Now we’re excited to be able to offer McDelivery and give our customers another option to enjoy their McDonald’s favourites, contact free, by eating from the comfort of their own home.”

Safety measures are in place to help protect customers, employees and McDelivery partner couriers.

Hand sanitiser is at the entrance to every restaurant for couriers and dine-in and takeaway customers.

There are clear floor-markings and signposting inside and outside restaurants to help enable social distancing.

Touchpoints including self-order screens, card readers and doors will be sanitised at least every 30 minutes

Perspex screens have been installed in the kitchens, service areas and drive-thru windows and additional protective equipment has been provided for restaurant teams, including disposable gloves for people in customer and courier facing positions and face coverings.

There are fewer people on each shift and customers are asked to use contactless payment methods as much as possible and all Uber Eats couriers will be wearing masks as per new UK Government policy.

McDelivery via Uber Eats will feature McDonald’s breakfast, lunch and dinner options and will be available within 1.5 miles of the participating McDonald’s restaurant during trading hours.

Other changes McDonald’s have made to improve convenience for customers includes introduction of the My McDonald’s app.

When restaurants are fully operational the app also allows customers to save their favourite orders, customise burgers, collect digital McCafé loyalty points, order and pay for their meal ahead of time before collecting from the counter or having delivered straight to a table.
