McDonald’s Rolls Out Kiosk Ordering in Alexandria


In addition to mobile payments, McDonald’s is updating U.S. restaurants with self-service kiosk ordering, “smart” menu boards, custom sandwiches and table service, according to Reuters.

Kiosk ordering has now come to Alexandria, Virginia area McDonald’s as the 61-year-old company is playing catch up in the technology area to early adopters such as Domino’s Pizza, Starbucks and Panera Bread. Instead of waiting in line to carefully convey your complicated order, folks can tap it into a giant touch screen.

The kiosks (‘Create Your Taste’) “let you order exactly what you want with more choices than ever before,” the company website says.

I noticed that the North Henry Street McDonald’s now has fully operational kiosks. As of right now, you do have to interact with a human at the register if you want to pay with cash; the kiosks accept mobile payment options from Apple and Google, and debit or credit cards.

I’m told the only other McDonald’s in the Alexandria, Virginia area that has them right now is the Glebe Road store.

McDonald’s is trying to build a better McDonald’s – for a FULL look at the changes coming to all stores, see this video.
