McDONALD’S CANADA TO OPEN ITS FIRST STANDALONE McCAFÉ® AT MONTREAL PIERRE-ELLIOT-TRUDEAU INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT
MONTRÉAL, May 23, 2023 /CNW/ – McDonald’s Canada announced today that work has begun on the new site for the first-ever standalone McCafé® location in a Canadian airport at Montreal Pierre-Elliot-Trudeau International Airport. Set to open this summer, this will also be the first standalone McCafé location in the province of Quebec.
“We are excited to be expanding our footprint to meet our guests growing appetite for our Premium Roast Coffee beyond their daily rituals,” said Michèle Boudria, President and CEO of McDonald’s Canada. “This new standalone McCafé at the Montreal Pierre-Elliot-Trudeau International Airport is a milestone in the evolution of the McCafé brand in Québec.”
The standalone McCafé site will be located in front of Gate 50 near the entrance of international departures to provide a convenient access point for domestic and international travellers. It will also feature self-ordering kiosks to meet customer demands for a quick and convenient place to order their Premium Roast Coffee and a variety of items to enjoy “on the go” while in transit.
In addition to the existing staples of Premium Roast Coffee, espresso-based beverages, McMuffin® sandwiches, and sweet bakery treats, the menu at this location will feature an exclusive lineup that includes freshly made in-house sandwiches, such as grilled cheese and freshly baked croissant sandwiches.
Taking the reins of this brand-new site is McDonald’s franchisee, François Nolin, who has more than 35 years of experience in the restaurant industry.
“I’m looking forward to welcoming our first guests and being part of their travelling ritual. This new location will provide an experience tailored to meet the needs of our guests who want to enjoy their favourite McCafé on-site or on the go,” said François Nolin.
As part of its strategy to develop and strengthen the reputation of McCafé as a leading coffee brand, McDonald’s Canada is proud to offer the quality experience guests are looking for in a new standalone destination.
The grand opening of the standalone McCafé is scheduled for the summer of 2023.
