***ORIGINAL STORY (Sept. 18, 2019)***
One of the Miami Valley’s most high-profile McDonald’s restaurants — especially for those who live, work, shop or attend events in downtown Dayton — has shut down temporarily for a significant renovation and re-design, inside and out.
The restaurant at 410 S. Main St., just north of the U.S. 35 overpass, is scheduled to reopen in about three to four weeks after installation of a double drive-through and multiple enhancements to the interior, Debbie Wright, the franchise owner/operator of the downtown Dayton McDonald’s, said via a spokeswoman for the fast-food chain.
“Customers can look forward to a new, sleek, modern exterior and interior,” the spokeswoman said. “Outside, double drive-throughs will be featured, wrapping behind the building, and (will) be equipped with digital-menu ordering boards. Inside will be completely modernized with a clean, fresh aesthetic, digital touch-screen kiosks for ordering, and updated menu boards at the counters.”
The projected timeline for reopening is between Oct. 4-11, “slightly longer than normal for the remodel due to the creation and installment of a double drive-through,” the McDonald’s spokeswoman said.
