McDonald’s self-ordering kiosk gets high marks

Wesley Chapel, Florida — In the ever-changing world of fast food, McDonald’s is now trying something totally new and it’s right here in our backyard.

The Wesley Chapel McDonald’s on State Road 54 is the only location in the state with the new Create Your Taste menu and self-ordering kiosks. The store is one of only 12 nationwide with both options.

“Crazier the better right,” said David Fettner, while trying the new kiosks at the Wesley Chapel McDonald’s for the first time and creating his own burger.

“It’s going pretty well,” said Fettner.

Customers at a McDonald’s in Wesley Chapel can order their food at a self-service kiosk.

The new self-ordering kiosks and Create Your Taste menus are the latest for the burger giant trying to stay on top of the fast-food world.

“Our customers are telling us that’s what they like, that’s what they love, and that’s what they want to continue to see us move forward with into the future,” said John Frost, who has been the owner operator at this location for 35 years and jumped at the chance to have these kiosks.

“We need to do something different to change the trajectory of our business we have to stay relevant with our customers,” Frost said.

There is even a new station devoted to preparing the Create Your Taste menu items and with a different look. The items take a little longer to prepare and then they’re delivered to your table.

“Yeah, I like that option, too, sit down, maybe do a little reading wait for it to come,” Fettner said.

But what about that self-ordering kiosk?

“Little bit of a learning curve, but it’s kind of playing with an iPad,” said Fettner.

“It’s better than standing in line and trying to do it with everybody else. Plus it comes with a nice little basket, it’s a little nicer dinning,” said David Fowler.
