The West Jefferson McDonald’s is undergoing significant renovations this summer. Patrons of the local restaurant will notice major changes taking place over the coming weeks. The restaurant, located at its Ashemont Shopping Center location, will be remodeled to allow for a new, more modern, look and enhanced functionality. McDonald’s is slated to complete the remodel in early fall, with the project designed to allow the restaurant to remain open – with either Drive Thru or Front Counter open, and little down time throughout the construction period.
The remodel features an extensive interior and exterior redesign. “Customers can look forward to a new, modern interior and an exterior to include re-designed parking and two Drive Thru lanes,” reports Don Moore, the local franchise Owner/Operator of the West Jefferson McDonald’s.
“Inside will be completely refreshed with a modern décor to include new tables, chairs, and lighting. Our Front Counter area will be re-designed so that customers can continue to order face-to-face with our friendly cashiers, as they always have, or use the convenience of new touch screen order kiosks,” continued Moore.
Outside, the parking area will be re-designed and two Drive Thru lanes will be constructed, equipped with colorful, digital picture menu boards. “We are excited to bring a new concept to Ashe County – a two lane Drive Thru, like many of our customers have seen at other McDonald’s. The remodel will also allow for changes in our kitchen, to allow our hard-working kitchen crew to complete our customers’ orders more efficiently.”
“What is not new,” Moore continued, “is the great customer service we strive to give each and every customer. We are so thankful for our hard-working, dedicated employees and for the support our Ashe County neighbors have given us through the years. We are proud to live here, and to have a business that employs over 100 employees. We are also proud to have a business positioned at the gateway into the towns. We strive to showcase, through our operations, design, and landscaping, the inviting and welcoming place that residents and visitors alike, enjoy about Ashe County.
The West Jefferson McDonald’s has been recognized on many occasions by the McDonald’s Corporation for its top-notch Customer Service and Operations, earning the McDonald’s Outstanding Restaurant Award (top 5% in the United States) on several occasions.
The Moores – Don, MaryAnne, and sons Anderson and Stanton – have proudly owned and operated the McDonald’s of West Jefferson since moving to Ashe County in 1995.
