It’s time to polish up the Golden Arches.
McDonald’s has announced a two-year effort to invest roughly $120 million to modernize 200 of its restaurants throughout Arizona. The remodeling and modernizing effort includes new touchscreen kiosks, made by a Scottsdale-based company, on which customers can place orders.
More than two-thirds of the company’s 290 Arizona outlets will get a face lift this year and next. Construction and modernization costs will be paid for by the parent company and by franchisees. Some restaurants already have been remodeled. McDonald’s employs about 13,000 people in Arizona.
