Oct. 04--The McDonald's restaurant located at 302 E. Main St. in Waynesboro is temporarily closed for renovations. The work began Wednesday and is expected to take about three weeks.
The restaurant is scheduled to reopen in late October, according to a press release issued by local franchise owner/operator Delamor Enterprises.
The renovation will include new exterior design; new interior dining room; fresh landscaping; a newly configured drive-thru; table service where guest orders will be personally delivered by McDonald's crew members; and new self-order kiosk technology. The kiosk will provide another ordering option for guests, but orders will continue to be taken by crew members at the restaurant's traditional counter.
"We're focused on enhancing our customers' experience and giving them more convenient options when selecting how they order and receive their food," said Steven Delamater, owner/operator of the WaynesboroMcDonald's. "As a result, customers visiting the WaynesboroMcDonald's will be able to customize their experience -- whether they are ordering at our counter the same way they always have, using our kiosks, or taking advantage of our newly-configured drive-thru. Every customer needs to know that no jobs will be lost due to the new technology."
As a result of the renovations and increased customer service options, the restaurant is expected to see a 20 percent increase in hiring in the near future.
Applications for the Waynesboro restaurant are currently being accepted and will continue to be accepted throughout the renovation process and through the end of October.
The drive-thru model will have the same footprint as the Chambersburg location on Lincoln Way East, according to Delamater.
Currently in Waynesboro, vehicles often have to wait on a busy Main Street before entering the lot and drive-thru line.
The restaurant first opened its doors in 1974.
"We're extremely proud to operate a local business in Waynesboro, and we're making a significant investment through the renovation process to update our building and service for the convenience of our customers," added Delamater, who purchased the Waynesboro franchise in 1986. It was the first restaurant for Delamater, who now owns 10 McDonald's franchises throughout Franklin, Fulton and Bedford counties.
Delamater plans to roll out a 7-to-10 day grand re-opening schedule which is expected to include reduced food offers, activities, prizes and a laser show by DayStar Productions.
"We look forward to welcoming this community back into our restaurant in just a few short weeks," Delamater said.
