McDonald's restaurant chain is forced to revise the menu as the coronavirus spreads.
The McDonald's chain of restaurants is forced to revise menus in the U.S. amid the spread of the coronavirus and increasing pressure on employees in severe working conditions. The company has now allowed breakfast menus to be shortened to focus on the most popular dishes.
According to Bill Garrett, McDonald's senior vice president of operations in the U.S., some items will disappear from the menu in the next few weeks to simplify the number of activities in restaurant kitchens and provide the best possible customer service in the situation.
"We will evaluate the situation regularly and hope to get back to our regular menu as soon as possible," Garrett commented.
McDonald's recognizes that the proliferation of Covid-19 can have a significant impact on the company's business. Today, in the U.S., all restaurants are run on take-out or delivery only, and many have had to reduce their opening hours. At the same time, in Western Europe, McDonald's has temporarily suspended all restaurants.
