According to the President of Milford’s McDonalds Paul Bertollo, located on North Dupont Highway, the business will be closing its doors today at the end of business. The building will be torn completely down and rebuilt as a new McDonalds.
“We are a proud member of the Milford community. And, while we will be temporarily closing today, we are very excited about the renovations that will be taking place,” said Charles Ehlers, McDonald’s Owner, Operator. “We are looking forward to bringing the community, our customers and crew members an elevated McDonald’s experience in the near future. We’d like to thank our customers for their loyalty and look forward to them joining us when we open back up again this fall.”
The current McDonalds in Milford has been in operation for over 40 years. At the close of the day on June 28, 2017, construction crews will take over to demolish and rebuild a new McDonalds restaurant, a process that will take three to four months, according to Bertollo. “It has been a while coming,” he said. “It is much needed.”
Several McDonalds locations in Delaware have remolded or been completely rebuilt over the past several years. Bertollo states that the new drive thru and dining options in Milford will allow for a better customer experience as well as a safer work environment as “operationally the building will be easier to use.”
The company expects to open the new McDonalds restaurant in October of 2017.
