PAMPANGA— McDonald’s Philippines opened its Bike & Dine facilities in its stores in Pampanga to provide more outdoor dining options for Filipinos to safely eat in.
The ceremonial opening held recently at McDonald’s CM Recto and Clark Gate stores’ Bike & Dine area was attended by McDonald’s Philippines managing director Margot Torres, Pampanga governor Dennis Pineda, and Bases Conversion and Development Authority President and CEO and also National Task Force Against COVID-19 Deputy Chief Implementer Secretary Vince Dizon.
Torres shared that this new facility is one way of McDonald’s championing customer inclusivity.
“We recognize the thousands of Kampampangans, especially frontline workers, who have turned to biking as their means of transportation during this unprecedented time. We saw this as an opportunity to provide them a way to enjoy their favorite McDonald’s meals conveniently, while ensuring that their bikes are safe and secure,” said Torres.
Known as a bike-friendly zone, Clark plans to build more bike-related facilities moving forward and through the McDonald’s Bike & Dine, it aims to provide cyclists a dining space after they ‘Ride Thru’.
Apart from that, cyclists can conveniently mount their bike securely in racks that are attached to a ledge which doubles as a table.
Through this, bike-riding customers can enjoy their meals without worrying about the safety of their bicycles.
To date, there are two other Bike & Dine facilities in the country, McDonald’s Vermosa (Cavite) and McDonald’s McKinley West (Taguig), with more slated to open this year.
McDonald’s’ M Safe program, stringent health and safety protocols are also set in place to assure that diners can enjoy their food while ensuring a high standard of safety.
“We are excited to scale Bike & Dine to more stores in other cities, too. We look forward to introducing this innovation to more bike-riding communities, where more customers can enjoy their favorite McDonald’s meals safely and more conveniently,” said Torres.
