The new McDonalds

A McDonald’s restaurant in downtown Manhattan is the first in the McDonald’s chain in the US to get a European-style makeover similar to what McDonald’s has done at thousands of outlets around France and the United Kingdom. the new renovations has added WiFi access, flat screen TV’s, vinyl chairs instead of the plastic ones that are bolted to the floor, subdued lighting and employees whose all-black uniforms suggest a hip boutique. “It’s like a lounge,” said Kimberly Burgess, “It’s so different from all the other McDonald’s. It’s beautiful”.  McDonald’s Corp, spokeswoman Danya Proud said “People are using our restaurants differently today than they did five, 10, 20 years ago,” she said. “People are multi-tasking, doing more on a given day. … You want to be able to open your laptop, log on and get some work done while you’re eating.”
