As one of the largest QSRs in the world, McDonald's has had a a knack for being at the forefront of developments in the industry, and it seems that that might be happening once more with the announcement of McDonald's Table Service. The restaurant announced that its locations will soon offer table service for all guests, meaning that a McDonald's staff member will bring people their orders as well as taking orders from the table.
According to Steve Easterbrook, the CEO of McDonald's, "Customers are getting increasingly demanding, and their expectations will only grow." Considering that it's only getting easier for consumers to order food directly to their homes, McDonald's table service is a logical step for the QSR to increase convenience in its restaurants.
