Last week, we got excited when we heard news of “McDonald’s of the Future” innovations being tested out at a location in St. Joseph, Missouri, including an all-you-can-eat French fries concept that would soon expand nationwide. Sadly, McDonald’s is denying these reports.
McDonald’s spokesperson Lisa McComb told NOLA that indeed the new 6,500-square foot McLocation will test out some upcoming features for McDonald’s customers, including new digital kiosks and burger and dessert customization options.However, the unlimited French fry dream of ours? It’s apparently only being used as a promotional deal specifically for the Missouri location, and you won’t see it anytime soon at your local McDonald’s.
"To celebrate its grand opening, the restaurant is offering all-you-can-eat fries for a limited promotion as a great shareable menu item for our customers," Lisa McComb of McDonald's said.
This new location does sound pretty unique though: With table service, videogames, and a lounge with couches and armchairs, we might expect to see some of these feature popping up at other Golden Arches sometime soon.
