McDonald's eyes 100 more restaurants over next three years as part of $600m investment plan

A majority of new restaurants will include a drive-thru, McDelivery and digital ordering.

McDonald’s revealed it is looking to open 100 new restaurants across Australia as part of a $600 million investment over the next three years.

The fast food giant, which currently has 1,007 restaurants and employs over 106,000 people in the country, is targeting to open a total of 27 outlets in QLD, NSW, VIC, SA and WA this year, expecting the move to create around 2,700 new jobs.

Over $42 million will also be spent in “reinvesting” into their current restaurants, intended to enhance customer experience across their drive-thrus, in-store dining, McCafe and delivery.

McDonald’s said its property strategy is focused on expanding drive-thru and targeting suburban and metro locations.

A majority of new restaurants will include a drive-thru, McDelivery and digital ordering in order to offer a contactless and convenient experience, it added.
