A McDonald's now under construction in Missouri is billing itself as the "McDonald's of the Future," and the future is apparently a place of boundless french fries. The franchise in St. Joseph is making national headlines for a promise to be the first McDonald's to offer all-you-can eat fries, reports NBC News. Word first surfaced in an interview owner Chris Habiger gave to the St. Joseph News-Press in which he boasts about other features including kiosks where people will place their orders, the ability to special-order the "burger of your dreams," and staff who will deliver the food to customers lounging on couches and arm chairs. But reaction is all about the fries.
As Money notes, it ranges from the best-news-ever variety to the scariest-news-ever variety. "McDonald's testing bottomless fries. You know, for their customers who want endless diabetes," is one typical tweet. Versus another: "This is enough to make me want to move to Missouri." No word yet on what corporate McDonald's thinks of the fries offer, notes Fortune. The restaurant is scheduled to open in July. (Read more McDonald's stories.)
