If your favorite thing at McDonald’s is trying out all the different combinations of soda, we’ve got some bad news. The chain is phasing out something customers have come to expect: self-serve beverage stations.
This means that in the future, you won’t be given an empty cup to fill yourself, but you’ll have a while to get used to the change. McDonald’s says they’ll be transitioning away from the self-serve soda machines in dining rooms across the country by 2032. While some Mickey D’s locations won’t be having employees pour drinks for close to a decade, other locations will be making that change sooner.
The fast food giant says the move is intended to create a consistent experience for both customers and staff across all ways of ordering. So whether you order your Big Mac and a Coke through
McDelivery, the app, kiosk, drive-thru or inside the restaurant, you’ll get it the exact same way.
