CHICAGO, IL. (WGHP) – For the time being, McDonald’s is set to do away with the self-serve soda machines in the restaurants over safety and cleanliness concerns.
McDonald’s reopening guidelines state that ““beverage bars will remain closed or sectioned off and staffed in restaurants,” according to a 59-page memo obtained by The Wall Street Journal.
14,000 McDonald’s restaurants across the US are affected by the change.
The soda fountains are reportedly difficult to clean, the memo stated.
A McDonald’s franchise owner quoted in the WSJ said he would rather have the machine shut down than to deal with the hassle of running it.
