SHOPPERS can now order a Big Mac on the go at intu Merry Hill.

The McDonald's restaurant on the lower mall of the Brierley Hill shopping centre has undergone a digital transformation and now offers a click and collect service.

Fans of the Golden Arches can dodge the queue if they download and order via the new mobile phone app, as staff will begin to prepare their meals as soon as they check into the restaurant.

How it works:

  • Order – open the app and select your meal

  • Check in – when you arrive at the restaurant, scan the code at your mobile order check-in point which is clearly signposted in your restaurant, then pick where you would like to eat; table service, eat in, or take out. You will be given an order number

  • Pay – pay immediately via the app using your credit or debit card

  • Collect – keep an eye out for your order number and collect when ready

  • Enjoy!

Franchisee Abdul Sirkhot said: “I’m proud to be able to offer customers more choice as to how they enjoy their McDonald’s experience with this new digital store.

"McDonald’s is committed to harnessing digital innovation to provide our customers with the food they want, when and how they want it, as seen with the addition of mobile ordering.

"We anticipate ‘click and collect’ being very popular particularly when people are in a hurry and on-the-go.”

The restaurant now has self-service kiosks, allowing customers to order at a speed that suits them, while easily accessing nutritional information and making informed food choices.

Other digital features in the restaurants include free to use tablets and mobile phone charging points.
