Latrobe McDonald's to get high-tech transformation
McDonald's new "arcade" design, now featured at restaurants across the country, is coming to Latrobe.
The restaurant at 2014 Lincoln Ave. has begun a transformation that will include digital self-order kiosks, an expanded kitchen with energy-efficient appliances, digital menu boards with calorie counts and side-by-side drive-through kiosks. Touchscreen ordering was introduced in September in Western Pennsylvania at a site on McKnight Road in Ross.

The remodeled dining room will have new lighting, comfortable furniture with natural finishes and a contemporary color scheme that reflect the personality of the brand, according to a press release.
The restaurant will remain open during the remodeling process, says manager Jeana Wynn, although there will be brief, alternating shut-downs of the drive-through and inside counter service during the process.
The entire store may shut down for a day or two for repaving of the parking lot, she says.
The project is expected to be completed in late October.
"We're grateful for the strong support McDonald's has received from this community for many years," owner/operator Chuck Jackson said in the press release. "That's why we're making sure the new building is even more comfortable and convenient for our customers."
