McDonald’s recently invested approximately $6 billion to modernize more than 8,700 restaurants in the United States. The modernization plan consists of upgraded materials in dining areas, locally-inspired décor, refreshed exterior designs, table service and new in-store technology, such as self-ordering kiosks, digital menu boards, mobile app ordering and accompanying curb-side pickup to deliver new levels of service, personalization and convenience.
