McDonald's hopes customers who come to the newly revamped restaurant in Ross will leave thinking about the company's slogan “I'm Lovin' it.”

On Tuesday, Sept. 19, the McDonald's at 7702 McKnight Road will become the first location in the Pittsburgh area to debut new technology and service to enhance the customer experience.

Diners will be able to use digital self-order kiosks to browse the menu and order at their own pace. Table service and new payment options including Apple and Android Pay also will debut.

“We're grateful for the strong support that McDonald's has always received from our community,” said Priscilla Foster, the owner and operator of the restaurant. “That's why we tried to make our restaurant even more comfortable and convenient for all our guests.”

The new restaurant model has been successfully rolled out in more than 2,600 restaurants globally, according to company officials.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
