McDonald’s to phase out self-serve drink fountains

(KTLA) — Soon, you won’t be able to make your own drink concoction at McDonald’s — the fast food giant says self-serve fountain drink stations at restaurants nationwide will soon be a thing of the past.

McDonald’s is phasing out soda machines in dining rooms across the U.S., the company told Nexstar’s KTLA in a statement. The news, first reported by The State Journal-Register, comes as fewer customers visit the dining room, opting instead for take-out or digital orders.

“McDonald’s will be transitioning away from self-serve beverage stations in dining rooms across the U.S. by 2032. This change is intended to create a consistent experience for both customers and crew across all ordering points, whether that’s McDelivery, the app, kiosk, drive-thru or in-restaurant,” McDonald’s said in a statement to KTLA.
