When the first national lockdown kicked in earlier this year many found themselves desperate for a McDonald’s fix.
This was later evidenced when drive-thrus re-opened causing traffic chaos around Coventry and Warwickshire.
In Nuneaton, police even took the step of closing a road to ease the congestion caused by those queuing to get their Big Macs.
With another national lockdown new just a few days away – it begins on Thursday as announced by Boris Johnson at the weekend – some have wondered what the fast food giant’s plans are reports BirminghamLive.
The chain was asked on Twitter whether it would be able to continue once the new shutdown begins in England on Thursday November 5.
The tough new measures were announced by the Prime Minister on Saturday night, October 31.
Pubs, restaurants, entertainment venues and non-essential shops will shut.
But restaurants will be allowed to remain open for takeaway, delivery and click and collect.
The Government guidelines state: “Restaurants can still provide takeaway and delivery services.”
At the start of the first lockdown in March, McDonald’s closed all its branches and did not reopen for delivery and Drive-Thru until June.
In response to one fan, McDonald’s tweeted: “We will comply with any directives given by the UK government in relation to the opening of our stores next week.”
Over the last lockdown, the chain released several secret recipes for their bestseller products, as fans coped without their fast food fix.
In May it reopened drive-thru restaurants around the UK in phases – and with a £25 per car price cap.
