McDonald’s has filed plans to rebuild its 36-year-old facility on Market St. from the ground up.
If the project is approved, the new McDonald’s will be slightly smaller, still feature a play place and will provide two drive-thru lanes instead of one — which will reduce those occasionally long drive-thru lines. The new facility will offer 41 parking spots instead of 49.

Motivated to bring back more customers, McDonald’s has been offering big incentives for franchises to upgrade and modernize, according to a WSJ story last year. Potential upgrades go beyond the building itself to self-order kiosks and table-locator technology, new employee uniforms, enhanced desert counters and more.
If for some reason a complete rebuild is not approved, McDonald’s plans to remodel the facility.
In either case, the work will likely close the restaurant for an extended period of time once the project is approved. No word on any timeline.
