Bristol McDonald’s to Get Makeover
The McDonalds in the Bristol Park Shopping Center will be getting a major makeover.
As part of a “reskinning” effort by the fast food chain, plans for the overhaul at the Commerce Circle site were approved Monday night by Bristol Borough Council.
The approval and partial waiver for a sidewalk to be installed will move forward with work to begin in November, representatives for McDonald’s USA, LLC said.
Plans include installing a sidewalk, at franchisee cost, at the entrance way intersection to the shopping center.
The initial proposal called for a sidewalk to be installed along Rt 13, however, council didn’t require it and thought the idea could become a pedestrian safety issue.
The site has needed a lot of work, I was there recently and the drive thru lights were just hanging there, said Council President Ralph DiGuiseppe, adding an update is really needed.
“The building is definitely in need of repair,” DiGuiseppe said
The redevelopment plan calls for: replacing the mansard roof, redoing the inside and outside of the fast food site so its looks similar to those the Delaware Valley area, removal of the bay window, adding a vestibule for additional office space, becoming ADA compliant for people with challenges, and a reduction of the overall size of the site by 19 feet.
New landscaping is also included in the plan, with the addition of nine trees and creating four new parking spaces.
In 2020, The Chronicle Online reported McDonald’s was investing, 6 billion for store remodel across the nation.
This will be a major overhaul said representatives for the franchisee
