McDonald’s will attempt to make up for lost time and get in on the mobile ordering game starting next year.
McDonald’s previously tested mobile ordering technology in countries like Austria and Thailand as well as 22 locations near Columbus, Georgia. A full roll out of the system will begin in the US and a number of international markets starting in 2017. Customers will order food through the app and scan a QR code, which automatically charges the customer via a card linked to their account.
Up to 25,000 locations are expected to make use of the system by 2018.
