With its renovations now complete, McDonald’s in Golden will celebrate its grand re-opening on Saturday Jan.25. Mascots Ronald McDonald and Birdie will be among the attendees for the celebration that will include cake and ribbon cutting ceremonies, face-painting and other yet to be confirmed entertainment.

In addition, customers will have a chance to win free food prizes by donating to Ronald McDonald House, and EZ Rock’s Steve Keppler will be broadcasting live on location.

Special offers will be available on food and beverage items from Jan. 20-26 including free small coffee, $4.99 Big Mac, McChicken and Quarter Pounder with Cheese extra value meals and $2.99 Happy Meals. Every 20th vehicle through the drive-thru will receive a $10 McDonald’s gift card and a single grand prize of free coffee for a year will be awarded as well.

Thanks to the recent renovations, McDonald’s dining area has approximately doubled in size, giving guests plenty of room and the staff some added counter space. Drinks are now easily refillable from the restaurant’s self serve beverage station and plenty of large tables has some added benefits as well.

“This is a place where friends meet,” said Dallas Matheson, in charge of the restaurant’s community relations. “We have lots of regular local coffee groups that come throughout the week and on the weekend. It gets pretty nice to have them every day.”

The renovations have also made the restaurant much more technology-friendly as well.

“There’s a high bench area and under there are several plug-ins for people’s laptops or computers, of course we also offer WiFi as well,” Matheson said.

Matheson encourages parents to bring their cameras to the grand re-opening for photo opportunities with Ronald McDonald and Birdie. The ribbon and cake cutting ceremonies will take place at 1 p.m..
