McDonald's Mulling Silverware In Oz
tYou go to a McDonald’s (in Australia) and sit down to tablecloth adorned tables and real cutlery? The company has been given the corporate nod to try it for five weeks: plates, real cutlery and table service. Well, it's not the whole country, but a McD's (Macca's) a suburb south of Sydney, and had to get approval from Chicago headquarters. At the helm of the venture is the couple that owns the location, who say they came up with this plan while serving the man’s parents and mother-in-law meals with real silverware when they’d drop by. When other customers were interested in getting the same treatment the idea was born.
