Its new strategy unveiled to investors on Monday doubles down on such trends, like customers’ preference for core menu items and the surge in drive-thru orders.With its digital sales expected to exceed $10 billion this year, the company is planning to launch “MyMcDonald’s” across its six top markets by the end of next year. The new platform will tie together McDonald’s various tech investments, like its app and digital menu boards, and make it easier for customers to order and pay for their food. McDonald’s will test a loyalty program in the Phoenix area as part of the plan.The company said it plans to take advantage of the strength of its drive-thru lanes by testing automated order taking, drive-thru lanes only for digital orders and a restaurant design without any indoor dining. McDonald’s also said that the “vast majority” of new restaurants in the United States and its International Operated Markets segment, which includs France and the United Kingdowm, will have drive-thru lanes.The pandemic has also pushed McDonald’s customers to return to their classic menu items, like the Big Mac or McNuggets. The company said that its core menu items account for about 70% of its sales. It’s planning on tweaks to improve the taste of its burgers, like toasting the buns golden brown and changing how they’re grilled.But chicken is growing faster than beef. In response, McDonald’s is planning to expand its line of chicken offerings, including the long-awaited launch of its Crispy Chicken Sandwich in the U.S. early next year. The sandwich is meant to rival those of Chick-fil-A and Popeyes.McDonald’s strategy also includes staying relevant for its consumers. Its famous orders promotions, like those with Scott and reggaeton singer J. Balvin, are “just the beginning.”The chain plans to roll out new packaging worldwide and an advertising campaign focused on its values and commitments to workers, suppliers and franchisees.This is breaking news.
