McDonald's recently opened a new concept restaurant that has no seating area for customers. In recent years, McDonald's has made a strong effort to cater to time-pressed consumers who prefer to eat on the go. This new restaurant specifically caters to those who don't have time to dine by removing the traditional seating area.

The new McDonald's restaurant is located in New Jersey, just outside the exit of the Holland Tunnel. The restaurant itself has no seating area, meaning customers can only order from the drive-thru window or the walk-up window. The new restaurant is not only intended to provide speedier service, but it is also designed to cater to time-pressed consumers who are only interested in getting their food to go.

As the first seat-free McDonald's location in the New York tri-state area, the move could signal a new direction for the iconic fast food chain.
