McDonald’s has slashed the price of its pancakes in celebration of Shrove Tuesday.
During breakfast hours this morning, customers will be able to pick up the baked goods for just 99p per portion.
With every portion you get three pancakes and golden syrup to pour over them.
The price typically costs around £2.29 so you’ll be making a saving of £1.30 if you pick them up before 11am today.
You’ll also be able to avoid any Pancake Day disasters too – from flipping crepes onto the floor to having unmixed flour in your batter.
At the moment, the majority of Brits can only order through Drive-thru or McDelivery services.
But from February 22, McDonald’s plans to open walk-in services across most of the UK.
The move comes with a whole host of measures that will be in place from the moment stores reopen, such as staff wearing protective visors as well as customers wearing mandatory face coverings when dealing with staff.
Paul Pomroy, the head of McDonald’s UK & Ireland stated: “A month ago we made the voluntary decision to temporarily close walk-in takeaway while we reviewed our safety measures to ensure they reflect the evolving nature of the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Working closely with third party safety expert NSF International, we identified a small number of changes to further enhance our procedures, and we are currently in the process of rolling these out to restaurants.”
He went on to ensure that the safety of their staff was McDonald's number one priority: “The wellbeing of our people, as well as our suppliers, couriers and our customers remains our top priority, and we are confident the new processes in place will further enhance our already robust safety measures.”
As part of the new measures, staff will also undergo regular temperature checks as well as reducing the amount of people in kitchens to ensure social distancing rules are met.
Protective screens will be placed both in kitchens and out in the public areas of the restaurant alongside designated hand sanitisation zones and markings on the floor to aid social distancing.
