Ropewalk McDonald’s set for summer refit

Lincoln’s Ropewalk branch of McDonald’s will receive a major remodelling this summer. The restaurant will see a six-figure investment, aiming to give the fast-food outlet both a fresh and vibrant new look.

The Ropewalk refit is part of a wider investment being made by the global food chain. During 2010 alone McDonald’s UK plans to spend over £110 million remodelling over 200 of its restaurants.

The Ropewalk restaurant will adopt the new McDonald's signature look found across the country.

The refurbishment work is due to commence on Monday, August 2, and is expected to be completed by Friday, August 20. During this time the 24-hour restaurant will remain open.

A McDonald’s spokesperson detailed that the redesigned restaurant will feature the company’s new signature look, housing colourful interior design, including comfortable seating, and drop-down lighting.

The planning application for the refit reveals that in addition to a refurbishment of the existing building, which includes an improved staff room, several alterations will also be made outside.

Changes will be seen to the patio area, the car park layout, and the general landscaping of the site. A new vehicle height restrictor will also be installed.
