It was all smiles at a Fen McDonald’s restaurant after the drive-thru reopened for the first time in weeks after shutting due to coronavirus.
The Cromwell Road store in Wisbech reopened its drive-thru on Wednesday, June 3 at 11am and the queue wrapped around a neighbouring carpark.
Our snapper was there to capture the moment fast food-loving customers got their hands on their first Big Mac or McNuggets meal in weeks.
Pictures show the smiles as they made their way through the contactless drive-thru and out the other side with their prize fit for Ronald himself.
A spokesman for McDonald’s said: “This [reopening] is only possible following the hard work of the teams in our 44 pilot restaurants.
“Over the last fortnight, our employees, franchisees and suppliers have worked tirelessly to implement new procedures to enable safe working.
“Face coverings, gloves, Perspex screens and new safety and hygiene processes mean it will look different.
“It will take a little longer and as we have seen in the pilot restaurants, we expect demand will be high.
