Chelsea McDonald’s celebrates re-opening

CHELSEA – The McDonald’s on US 280 in Chelsea commemorated its grand re-opening after weeks of renovations at a ribbon cutting ceremony hosted by the Chelsea Business Alliance on Tuesday, March 6.

Owner Jim Black said the renovations came as the result of an effort to improve the appearance of the restaurant while making the service more efficient. Guests can now order via kiosk or phone app, and a larger playground was added for kids.

“It’s part of the modernization process that’s going through the McDonald’s system,” Black said.

President Dianne Thomas said Black also recently joined the CBA, and looks forward to watching the Chelsea McDonald’s continue to serve the community.

“The CBA is certainly happy to have McDonald’s as our newest member,” Thomas said.

The Chelsea McDonald’s first opened in 2001. Black and his wife, Cathy, along with their daughter, Jamie, currently own 11 McDonald’s franchises in the Birmingham, Oxford and Anniston areas.
