McDonald's bringing food to you?

My wife currently works at McDonald's right now. She called me during her break angry by something new they are doing. Not sure if they are doing it at all of them or just the ones in this area (as the ones in my area are franchised owned). But... If you order food they are giving numbers to people and then one of the staff brings it out to you. She said it is frustrating as there is a lot that they already do as staff and often are short handed. What do you think of this? I think the place is not a restaurant so it sounds dumb. I even mentioned this to my nurse at my doctor's appointment and she thought it was dumb as well.

McDonalds is sinking fast, so they are trying everything they can to get customers back. Let's face it, the food is very low quality, if you want customers coming back, you have to provide quality! Ok, well that made it sound like Mickey D's is going out of business! hahah I meant that their sales are stagnant, so they are trying to figure out how to drive profits higher! I don't think McD's will ever go out of business! lol

I have not been to the local McDonalds to know if they are doing it, but our Dairy Queen in the town where I used to live has been doing it for quite some time, then we ate at a Hardee's in a new truck stop and they did this as well. McDonald's may be trying to keep up with the competition or make people think that they are worth the prices the fast food costs. They also may feel it is more professional. I know with everything else your wife does both at work and away from work this probably feels like the last straw.

This is not the style of McDonald's. In fact it will make the delivery very inefficiency. I really think it is the best for customers to order the food and then pay for it right away in front of the counter. And then the customers bring their own food and find their tables.
