New Mansfield McDonald's to create 84 permanent and part-time jobs
A new McDonald’s opening in Mansfield is to create 84 permanent and part-time jobs.
The fast-food giant will open its doors to customers at Sherwood Oaks Business Park, on Oakleaf Close, at 11am on March 17.
Bosses say the opening comes after the start of another food outlet development at nearby Ransom Wood, which will include a Greggs and Costa Coffee.
The company says the new 24-hour drive-thru McDonald’s comes after ‘significant investment’ from franchisee Jacqui Moore.
Jacqui employs more than 450 people and owns and operates five restaurants across Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire, including the West Gate outlet in Mansfield town centre.
Initially, the new McDonald’s will only operate as a takeaway and drive-thru while coronavirus restrictions remain in place.
But as Covid 19 guidance changes, the company says its safety measures will be ‘revisited and adapted’ to ensure employee and customer safety.
Jacqui said: “My team and I are excited to be safely opening a brand-new McDonald’s restaurant in Mansfield. We’re looking forward to seeing our customers enjoy our services on offer, including takeaway and drive-thru.
"We’d also like to thank our customers in advance for their support and patience as we navigate and adapt to new, evolving restrictions and different ways of working."
The new restaurant will have two electric vehicle rapid chargers, Smart Digital drive-thru menu boards and self-service kiosks.
Customers will also be able to use the My McDonald’s App to order and pay for their meal contact free ahead of time.
The app sends a notification to the kitchen when customers are within 100 metres of the restaurant. Customers can pick-up via drive-thru, or park up and have their order brought to them.
As restrictions lift, dine-in services will resume.
The introduction of a new Table Markers scheme means customers can find a table, order through their phone and have their food delivered straight to where they’re sat through the app.
Stuart Mills, director of nearby Adco Properties Ltd, Ransom Wood, said: “I think it’s fantastic that all these new developments are going ahead in the area. It will really help open up this end of Mansfield. These food outlets are going to help bring new life to this area and provide much needed facilities. It is also great news that they are creating local jobs for people.”
