Starting next week, the McDonald’s located at the intersection of George Bush Drive and Wellborn Road will begin taking orders from vehicles waiting at the stoplight. Branch manager Nancy “Hotsauce” Jones was available to explain the thought process behind their decision.
“We already provide overflow parking for football games, so we thought about how else we could work with the local population to serve their needs,” said Jones. “This was the most obvious choice, so we decided to test it out, and it was a hit.”
Students waiting to cross the intersection can alleviate their crushing boredom with a Quarter Pounder with cheese or a 20-piece order of Chicken McNuggets. After they finish their meal, they can even make a second order for a sweet dessert such as an iced McCafé coffee or a tasty fruit parfait.
News of the decision caused local sandwich shop Jimmy John’s to reconsider their policy on deliveries to the intersection. They, too, will start a trial period for this new technique, delivering fresh subs to captive drivers in order to keep up with the rest of their fast food competition.
