Modernized McDonald’s reopens in Auburn

Ceremony includes a generous gift for the local food bank

For the Reporter

Auburn has a new McDonald’s to enjoy.

The modernized, locally-owned McDonald’s at 1531 Auburn Way N., invited guests on Wednesday to experience the Golden Arches in an unexpected way, with a new level of choice, engagement and service.

These changes are reflective of a new restaurant model that has been successfully rolled out in more than 2,600 international McDonald’s restaurants, putting more choice and control in the hands of guests by evolving how they order, what they order, how they pay and how they are served.

For those looking to order at their own pace, the Auburn McDonald’s new digital self-order kiosks make ordering and paying for a meal easy. Kiosks empower guests to browse the menu, find options and tailor their meal just the way they want.

“Listening to our guests and having the ability to evolve our business to suit their needs defines our commitment to customers. As an owner/operator, I couldn’t be more excited to bring this enhanced experience to the community and our guests.” said Stan Pennock, of the Auburn McDonald’s.

Guests’ orders are delivered to tables by McDonald’s crew members, allowing customers to relax and enjoy a more custom dining experience.

Giving back

On Wednesday, state Rep. Mark Hargrove, R-Covington joined Deputy Mayor Bob Baggett, Auburn Area Chamber of Commerce representatives, community leaders and McDonald’s staff for a ribbon cutting ceremony.

The Pennock organization also donated $2,018 to the Auburn Food Bank.
