People in Cedar Springs love their McDonald’s.
That was evident last Friday, February 11, when the restaurant celebrated its grand reopening by offering a free breakfast entrée a week for an entire year for the first 50 customers starting at 6 a.m. Restaurant manager Brian Miller said that cars were backed out to the street when he came in at 6 a.m. and the 50 cards were gone in a flash. “People came in at 6:11 thinking they were going to get a card,” he said.
They also offered other specials over the weekend and all this week.
The Cedar Springs McDonald’s, one of the busiest in West Michigan, underwent renovations on both
the outside and inside. The newly restored restaurant includes increased seating for 107 customers, a new side-by-side drive-through for fast, accurate and friendly service and a new PlayPlace with three levels of fun.
According to operations manager Brian McKenzie, Cedar Springs is the second McDonald’s to undergo the new design. The first was in Plainwell a week ago, and there will be four or five more next year. “It is great to do this in a community that has supported us so well,” he said. “It’s nice that we can freshen up your McDonalds.”
The store, which is corporately owned, currently employs 70 people, and McKenzie said they could eventually employ 80.
To celebrate, the store held a ribbon cutting ceremony at 9 a.m. with city officials, and presented a check to the Cedar Springs Fire Department for $500.
Miller invites the public to come in and check them out. “When people come in they will be pleasantly surprised at the great specials we are offering to welcome our customers,” he said.
