Fast food fans can finally get their hands on a Big Mac after a drive-thru McDonald’s opened for the first time since lockdown.
The Congleton branch welcomed back customers from 7am today (May 2) with queues quickly forming.
It was the first of McDonald’s supremo Eddie Leligdowicz to get back up and running since the restrictions were eased.
Branches in Sandbach and Macclesfield have also reopened but McDonald’s fans in North Staffordshire will have to wait longer.
Eddie said: “The store in Congleton opened its doors this morning and that was the first store to go live
“It’s just drive-thru for the time being but we are planning on doing home deliveries as well.
“I’m elated about the reopening. It’s been 10 weeks since we closed the doors so it has been a long time.
“Customers have been anticipating this for a long time and the feedback we’ve had is very understanding.
“We are getting a lot of respect from customers in terms of what we have done behind the scenes to allow ourselves to reopen right now.
“Personally I think we have done everything we can do to ensure a safe working environment for our staff and also protect our customers.
“We have introduced traffic management systems in our car parks to try to get the vehicles off the road into our car parks to minimise any inconvenience to road users.”
