A new McDonald's in High Wycombe is set to open on Wednesday. 

Construction on the fast food chain's latest eatery, in Crest Road near the Handy Cross roundabout started late last year.

It came after plans were first approved for the site in June 9, 2022.

McDonald's revealed the new branch will open to the public for the first time on Wednesday, April 24.

The new restaurant will become the chain's fourth site in the High Wycombe area.

Following significant investment from local Franchisee Alan Butchers, the restaurant will open for dine-in, takeaway, Drive-Thru and Click & Serve.

Opening hours will be 24 hours, seven days a week. 

The new 160-seater restaurant will create around 80 new full and part-time jobs for the local community and will feature table service, self-ordering kiosks, a large outside patio area and a Drive-Thru with Smart Digital Drive-Thru menu boards.

Alan Butchers, who now owns and operates eight McDonald’s restaurants in Buckinghamshire and Hertfordshire, said “We are delighted to be opening another brand-new McDonald’s restaurant in High Wycombe and can’t wait to see local customers, both new and old, enjoy our services on offer.

"People are at the heart of our business, and we look forward to welcoming new employees with the jobs our restaurant will create.

"We’re committed to investing in opportunities for a mix of all ages, life stages and backgrounds, promoting flexibility and equality.

"It’s particularly exciting to be opening this new restaurant as McDonald’s celebrates its 50th year in the UK!”

The new McDonald's has been built to increase speed, efficiency and choice when customers order their food. 

This combines a new layout with the latest technology to create a more seamless and enjoyable experience for customers.

With dedicated areas for the different ways to order, the new restaurant offers a more efficient way to order and provides customers with adequate space to enjoy their meal.

The new kitchen design and dedicated courier waiting area allow crew to better accommodate both courier and customer needs, meaning they will be able to serve more quickly, efficiently and accurately. 

The building has also been built with the environment in mind, with a roof mounted solar panels to support on-site generation of renewable energy.

A fully modular building which allows the building to be reused in future.

Timber window frames and partition walls have replaced the traditional aluminium and steel frames.
