McDonald’s has laid off around 1,030 of a total of 3,100 employees in Norway and closed seven of their restaurants as a result of the corona epidemic.
“There are still several restaurants that are considering whether they can stay open, while some restaurants see the need to bring people in again,” says communications manager Veronika Skagestad to E24
She also says that more and more people use the ‘drive-through’ method, where you sit in the car and order your meal.
“In recent weeks we have seen that our customers prefer to use ‘drive-through,’ which accounts for about 70 per cent of our sales now,” says Skagestad.
In addition, Skagestad states that seven restaurants are now closed. They are mostly in shopping malls and in the city center, where there are few people.
