McDonald's To Trim US Menu During COVID-19 Pandemic

McDonald's Corp has said that it will temporarily remove some items from its US menu as it focuses on simplifying operations in the face of the coronavirus outbreak.

Restaurants in the United States have been forced to either shut doors or limit service to delivery and takeaway, pressuring operators that are struggling with staffing and plunging traffic, among other issues.

Focusing On Serving The Most Popular Choices

"To simplify operations in our kitchens and for our crew...we are working with our franchisees and local restaurants to focus on serving our most popular choices and will begin temporarily removing some items from the menu over the next few weeks," said Bill Garrett, senior vice president of operations for McDonald's USA, in a statement to Reuters.
