The McDonald’s restaurant located at 302 E. Main St. in Waynesboro temporarily closed on Oct. 4 for renovations. The work is expected to take about three weeks and the restaurant is anticipated to reopen in late October.

The restaurant first opened its doors in 1974. The renovation will include new exterior design; new interior dining room; fresh landscaping; a newly configured drive-through; table service where guest orders will be personally delivered by McDonald’s crew members; and new self-order kiosk technology. The kiosk will provide another ordering option for guests, but orders will also continue to be taken by crew members at the restaurant’s traditional counter.

“We’re focused on enhancing our customers’ experience and giving them more convenient options when selecting how they order and receive their food,” said Steven Delamater, owner/operator of the Waynesboro McDonald’s. “As a result, customers visiting the Waynesboro McDonald’s will be able to customize their experience – whether they are ordering at our counter the same way they always have, using our kiosks, or taking advantage of our newly-configured drive-through.”

As a result of the renovations and increased customer service options, the restaurant is expected to see a 20 percent increase in hiring in the near future.

“We’re extremely proud to operate a local business in Waynesboro, and we’re making a significant investment through the renovation process to update our building and service for the convenience of our customers,” added Delamater. “We look forward to welcoming this community back into our restaurant in just a few short weeks.”
