TWENTY-five jobs have been created after a McDonald's restaurant in Kidderminster town centre received a major digital makeover.

The fast-food restaurant on the Weavers Wharf retail park reopened to customers on Wednesday (December 6), with the changes aimed to improve the customer experience.

To improve the speed and ease of ordering, customers now have the option to use one of the restaurant's self-order kiosks. These allow customers to browse the menu, look at nutritional information and personalise their meals - giving people more time to consider their food and drink choices.

Table service has also been introduced, to take the stress out of finding somewhere to sit when carrying food - potentially with children, bags and buggies. In restaurants where table service has been introduced previously, customer feed back has been positive.

Afia Sirkhot, who owns and operates the Weavers Wharf restaurant, said: "These changes are designed to make our customers' experience as positive as possible - whether that is providing people with a chance to get to grips with using a table in a relaxed environment, or providing parents with a quick and easy way of ordering their food.

"When ordering with the new kiosks customers will have the option to make different food choices, for example swapping fries for a side salad or adding a fruit bag to their children's Happy Meal."
