McDonald’s is celebrating England and Wales getting through to the last 16 in the Euros. To help celebrate, the fast food chain is reducing its entire menu by 16 percent for customers for two days only.
Unfortunately customers won’t be able to pick up the fast food chain’s chicken selects or chicken wraps due to a nationwide shortage McDonald’s is currently experiencing.
Earlier this month it was reported that the shortage of the food item may be due to the popularity of the product, as well as the fact that animal rights activists blocked McDonald’s distribution centres last month.
The chain said: “We are working incredibly hard to get this popular menu item back on sale in our restaurants.
“We know some customers will be disappointed to hear the news, and we would like to apologise for the short-term inconvenience.”
New restaurants will focus on being positioned on high streets in a bid to breathe life back into struggling town centres.
In April, it announced that it had returned to pre-pandemic levels of profit after a 7.5 percent rise in sales.
It came after the restaurant had closed its doors for several months last year due to the pandemic.
McDonald’s currently has more than 1,400 restaurants across the UK and Ireland, with even more planned for the next few years.
Last month, American fast food chain Wendy’s reopened its doors in the UK for the first time in over 20 years.
The Reading branch is now open, with plans to roll out more branches.
