NEW YORK — McDonald’s is opening a drive-through location in the city’s Chinatown and a new location in Manhattan, the company said Friday.
The new drive thru will open in Manhattan’s Chinatown on Sunday, McDonald’s said.
It is located at 646 East 63rd Street, between Sixth Avenue and Grand Concourse avenues, with the drive thru scheduled to open on Tuesday.
McDonald’s said the new drive through will feature more items such as burgers and hot dogs, which it said are available for purchase through the drive-in kiosks.
“It’s a more relaxed environment where people feel more comfortable and feel like they can come and enjoy themselves,” McDonald’s vice president of operations and franchising Steve Reisner said in a statement.
McDonalds said it will be the first drive-by location in New England, but said it is looking for locations across the United States.
Earlier this year, McDonalds expanded its drive- thru business in New Jersey and Pennsylvania, which will now serve as its main drive thru location.
