FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – Fort St. John residents that are fans of the morning McMuffin or Big Mac for lunch might have noticed some changes going on at the McDonalds on Alaska Road.
General Manager Steve Reese says that the restaurant is undergoing a renovation for approximately the next three months that will see a revamping of the Golden Arches location. The renovations are part of the chain’s Vision 2017 modernisation, which will feature updates to the restaurant including custom-order kiosks, table service, updated furniture, and a new, larger play area. Reese says that new play area will be 100 sq. ft. larger in size, and will be the largest in Canada, and one of the largest in North America.
According to Reese, since the renovations were required, the owner decided that the restaurant would feature a larger play area, since it gets a lot of use, especially during the winter months. Schematics of what the new restaurant and play area will look like will be mounted outside the restaurant in roughly one week’s time.
The renovations started last Monday, and Reese added that the new play area should be open for kids to play in by the end of December.
