New features at McDonald’s

McDonald’s of Huntingdon is now offering some new features.

The first of its kind in Huntingdon County, the redesigned restaurant is revolutionizing how customers order, how they pay and how they’re served. This new restaurant model has been successfully rolled out in thousands of McDonald’s restaurants around the world.

Features include digital self-order kiosks in the dining room, digital menu boards, and Mobile Order & Pay with curbside service option using the McDonald’s mobile app.

Mobile Order & Pay technology allows customers to use the company’s app to select items, check in at the restaurant, pay online, then enjoy a meal inside the restaurant or on the go with drive thru or curbside pickup.
