McDonald's of the Future coming in July, all you can eat fries


Recommended Posts



Local franchise owners unveiled plans for their McDonald’s of the future on Tuesday.


The new, 6,500-square-foot restaurant is expected to open in July. It may be one of the largest in a four-state area, according to owner Chris Habiger.


Habiger and his wife, Karri Habiger, own six locations in St. Joseph and the McDonald’s in Mound City, Missouri.


The restaurant at 3504 N. Belt Highway was closed and demolished about three weeks ago. Crews continue to work on the site in ground preparation for the new building. According to a building permit, construction and parking lot costs are an estimated $1.59 million.


The plan is to focus on casual dining and quick service by incorporating earthy tones with couches and arm chairs to larger-than-life kiosks to take customized orders.


The kiosks will not replace actual employees. Habiger said that the company, Habiger West, plans to hired 85 new employees in the next several months.


However, Habiger said the kiosks will enhance customer service by allowing customers to personalize their burger or chicken sandwich orders. With this option comes McDonald’s newest feature: all-you-can-eat french fries.


“There really are hundreds of different choices to build the burger of your dreams,” he said. “Once you’ve placed your order, you can find your seat because we’ll bring it out to you.”


The dessert menus will have a similar customizable option.
