McDonald's at 1508 South Washington Street in Crawfordsville will close for major re-design beginning March 6th to undergo a total makeover. McDonald’s restaurants have a whole new design – inside and out – and Crawfordsville is home to the newest location. The exterior of the new restaurant design departs from the traditional double mansard roof building which has been the McDonald’s trademark look since 1968. The new design is a contemporary building that draws its primary form from the arcade, a traditional architectural element that defines the front of the McDonald’s restaurant and main entry. “At McDonald’s our mission is to become our customer’s favorite place and way to eat. We strive to infuse a ‘Forever Young’ spirit in all that we do,” said Robert Jedele, owner of the Crawfordsville McDonald’s. “The new restaurant will give our customers a great place to meet, relax and enjoy a good quality meal.” The interior design features natural finishes in the lobby, zoned seating areas with a variety of seating types and comfortable configurations, lower lighting levels in the dining area utilizing recessed can lights and pendant fixtures which enhance the restaurant dining experience. The new restaurant will also include green elements including automatic faucets, LED lighting, and energy management systems. If customers are in a hurry and can’t stop inside for their favorite McDonald’s meal, the restaurant’s drive thru will have a two lane ordering system. This will make placing and picking up orders faster and easier than ever. Additional information regarding the grand re-opening will be announced in the coming months.
