Say Goodbye To Self-Serve Soda Stations At Texas McDonald’s Locations
The self-serve soda station is something we are used to seeing when walking into a fast food restaurant. But times are changing, and so are fast food restaurants. According to Click2Houston, McDonald's has confirmed that soda stations will soon become a thing of the past inside their stores.
McDonald's says it will be transitioning away from self-serve soda stations in dining rooms across the United States and hopes to have this done by 2032. McDonald's is doing this so that customers experience a "consistent experience for both workers and their customers at all ordering points".
In other words, you will soon be handed a drink and your food by someone instead of you going and getting your own drink. NBC also reported that theft and the decline in dine-in customers is leading to the change.
“The crew pour system — which actually will use automated beverage systems to mechanically fill drink orders — minimizes human contact,” reported the State-Journal. “Crew pour also eliminates theft and emphasizes the brand’s new focus on creating a more relaxed dine-in experience complete with servers delivering meals to the table.”
Servers? At McDonald's? Yeah, we will see how that goes.
I think the main cause of this is the decline of dine-in customers and the rise of the McDonald's app. In the future, don't be surprised to see fast food restaurants look a lot like some of the new coffee shops we have. Meaning, very few if any tables inside and the business is almost completely a drive thru and food delivery service.
