Time reports that McDonald’s is testing its potential restaurant of the future at a Missouri location. You can use self-serve kiosks to customize your burgers, and order all-you-can-eat-fries. Someone (or since this is the future, maybe some robot) will bring you your food.
3 Sarcastic Observations About This Story
- So in the future, you have to serve yourself at McDonald’s instead of get your order taken by a minimum wage employee? Congratulations McDonald’s on taking away many stand-up comedians punchline about life failure: “Would you like fries with that?”
- Speaking of asking “Would you like fries with that?”, it’s safe to say your arteries do not want to know the answer if it can be “Yes, and make it unlimited fries, please.”?
- Wow – the future has self-serve kiosks? Way to have a future that lags behind today‘s Starbucks and Chipotle, which already let people assemble food products and order them from their smartphones instead of some dated kiosk.
