1950 was the year the world was introduced to Fast Food.
Officially recognised in the dictionary in 1951, Fast Food has become increasingly faster over the last sixty years. But just when you thought it couldn’t possibly get any quicker, McDonalds have hit the afterburners with their new app that allows you to order ahead and save precious extra seconds queuing to pay.
The imaginatively named ‘McD ordering’ app is currently only on trial in 22 of the 14,000 US locations, but allows you to buy your burger of choice from the comfort of your phone. Scan a QR code, place your order, collect, consume, and wash it down with a slurp of Coke.
Where does it go from here? Our money’s on McDrones delivery. (Reach for the fries!)
