Macca’s is pivoting to “essential basics” as the coronavirus pandemic puts an end to business as usual.
Starting from Wednesday, customers will be able to buy two or three-litre bottles of full-cream and skim milk, English muffins and bread rolls either as takeaway or from the drive-thru.
“As part of our commitment to continue to support local communities during these uncertain times, Macca’s will now offer customers another way to access milk and bread, through its contactless drive-thrus and takeaway service, across the country,” a spokesperson for the company said.
“Our contactless service removes any need for touch contact between our employees and customers, making it a safe way for people to get food and drinks, as well as these essential basics.”
The announcement comes at a time when many are hesitant to go shopping due to coronavirus fears. Now, you can grab some milk without even leaving your car.
Around the country, almost all restaurants and fast food joints are being forced to reconsider how they do business due to new lockdown restrictions.
Last week, Macca’s put an end to customers dining-in after non-essential indoor gatherings were banned by the government. However, takeaway, home delivery and the drive-thru still remain available to customers.
