McDonald’s Testing Out “Walk-Thru Windows” For Drunk Customers
A Welsh McDonald’s fast-food restaurant is making a permanent feature that allows customers that are too drunk to drive and go through the drive-thru window to be served food in a special lane called a “walk-thru” window.
During the fast food restaurants trial weekend, the feature was such a success that they decided to make it permanent.
The restaurant, which is located in Llandudno, North Wales opened a separate lane for customers that can walk through and pick up food after leaving a newly reopened nightclub that is located nearby.
The feature will only be added between 2:30 am and 4:00 am, which is a perfect fit for those looking for food after a long night of going to the nightclub.
A spokeswoman for the McDonalds told The Sun, “The ‘walk-thru’ was a local initiative by the business manager of the restaurant to invite local residents to come and enjoy a meal at the restaurant after their night out at the newly reopened nightclub Broadway,” she said. “As the restaurant is in the process of securing a 24 hour license, customers can only use the drive-thru to order food at night, so the ‘walk-thru’ is just a play on how customers can come and enjoy a nice meal, later in the evening.”
The “walk thru” has been a feature that has long been wanted by fast food lovers but has not been implemented due to safety concerns.
