A FAST food restaurant in Accrington has reopened its doors after undergoing an almost month long digital makeover.

The McDonald’s restaurant at the Viaduct retail park closed on Friday, September 15, for work before reopening on Tuesday.

The chain confirmed the restaurant was closed as part of a‘major digital makeover’.

Local franchisee David Duncan, who owns and operates six restaurants in Blackburn and Lancashire, helped fund the work which cost around £700,000.

The work has seen self-order kiosks added, along with table service, as staff aim to make improvements to the speed and ease of ordering.

They also said changes will help parents with young children.

Mr Duncan said: "These changes are designed to make our customers’ experience as positive as possible.

"Whether that’s providing people with a chance to get to grips with using a tablet in a relaxed environment, or providing parents with a quick and easy way of ordering their food."

Staff say the changes have been designed with changing customer needs in mind.

Hyndburn Mayor Cllr Peter Britcliffe attended to mark the reopening of the restaurant.

While during the three week closure the nearest alternative branch was in Rising Bridge.
