McDonald’s reopens another 497 drive-thrus from today

Amazing news!!

Published

McDonald’s has been reopening hundreds of drive-thrus for delivery this week and a load more have opened in Greater Manchester.

Great news for Big Mac fans, as a further 497 McDonald’s are reopening from today as the chain continues its efforts to get back to business.

The plans state that all 924 drive-thrus will be open by Thursday.

Today, along with the hundreds of restaurants open for takeaway, 43 more restaurants reopened for McDelivery.

Announcing the changes, a McDonald’s spokesperson said: “This is only possible following the hard work of the teams in our 44 pilot restaurants.

“Over the last fortnight, our employees, franchisees and suppliers have worked tirelessly to implement new procedures to enable safe working so that we can now help all parts of the UK and Ireland to enjoy the return of the Big Mac.”

Things are a little different to normal under the golden arches with face coverings, gloves, perspex screens. 

The new safety and hygiene processes mean not only will it look different but things will take a little longer. Coupled with high demand, getting your Maccies fix is likely going to require some serious queuing. 

As part of social distancing measures in the restaurants, each will be operating with a reduced team and therefore a reduced menu. You can see the new reduced menu here.

A full list of the McDonald’s opening from today is below. You can download the app to locate your nearest restaurant

Kids can get a hot meal for just £1 at Asda this summer holidays

What a brilliant initiative!

Published

on

Asda

Asda has announced that kids can get a hot meal for just £1 during the summer holidays, in a bid to help alleviate the cost of living crisis.

The supermarket confirmed that they would be tackling holiday hunger by allowing children aged under 16 to grab a hot or cold meal for a quid.

The initiative will be available seven days a week and there’s no minimum adult spend required to redeem the discount at your nearest Asda Cafe.

Asda revealed the £1 meal offer in Scotland last month, but has now further rolled it out to England and Wales, confirming the good news yesterday.

Alex McGregor / Geograph

The Kids Eat for £1 deal will be available all day, every day (for as long as the cafe is open) from July 25th until September 4th in England and Wales.

A hot meal, cold meal, or both will be on offer, depending on what the cafe has available.

You’ll also be able to grab some baby food through the offer, including a free pouch of Ella’s Kitchen baby food.

Asda

A spokesperson for Asda said: “We know that families can find the summer holidays tough, and our customers are telling us that this year more than ever, they’re concerned about holiday hunger.

“With that in mind, we are so pleased to be able to offer children’s meals for just £1, with no minimum adult spend, to ensure that those who would normally rely on a school meal aren’t left without.”

And that’s not the only thing Asda is doing, having recently launched a freezer filler offer where shoppers can grab five items for £5, with certain products costing just £2.50 – providing a potential saving of up to £7.50.

The deal aims to help families make quick and easy meals over the summer holidays.

Crazy Pedro’s launch four cheese pizza after customer complains pizzas are ‘too cheesy’

No such thing as ‘too much’ cheese…

Published

on

Crazy Pedro's

With an epidemic of Karens seemingly out there at the moment, hard working hospitality staff are having to deal with more customer complaints than ever.

Now while some complaints are legitimate – if you’re served a burger with a dead pigeon on top you should definitely let the staff know – some are just downright ridiculous.

Exhibit A: a customer recently complained to Crazy Pedro’s that their pizza is TOO CHEESY.

Crazy Pedro’s

To each their own, I guess, but when it comes to cheese – in my humble opinion – there can be no such thing as ‘too much’.

The more the merrier, especially when it’s melted on top of one of Crazy Pedro’s incredible, massive pizzas.

In response to the customer complaint, Pedro’s has released something special for July – an epic FOUR CHEESE pizza called ‘In Cheezus We Crust’.

Crazy Pedro’s

The spectacular monthly special features a special Four Cheese Blend, pickles, chilli flakes, dill and a healthy glug of Ranch dressing.

The new pizza is available at all good Pedro’s throughout July as a full pizza or as a slice, as well as on Deliveroo.

Give Pedro’s a follow on Instagram here to stay up to date.
