McDonald’s Canada has announced work has begun on the site for the first-ever standalone McCafé location in a Canadian airport at Montreal’s Pierre Elliott Trudeau International Airport.
Set to open this summer, this will also be the first standalone McCafé location in the province of Quebec.
“We are excited to be expanding our footprint to meet our guests’ growing appetite for our Premium Roast Coffee beyond their daily rituals,” says Michèle Boudria, president and CEO of McDonald’s Canada. “This new standalone McCafé at the Montreal Pierre Elliott Trudeau International Airport is a milestone in the evolution of the McCafé brand in Québec.”
The site will be in front of Gate 50 near the entrance of international departures to provide an access point for domestic and international travelers. It will also feature self-ordering kiosks to meet customer demands while in transit.
In addition to the existing staples of coffee, espresso-based beverages, breakfast sandwiches, and bakery treats, the menu at this location will feature an exclusive lineup that includes in-house sandwiches, such as grilled cheese and baked croissant sandwiches.
McDonald’s franchisee, François Nolin, who has more than 35 years of experience in the restaurant industry, is taking the reins of this new location.
“I’m looking forward to welcoming our first guests and being part of their traveling ritual. This new location will provide an experience tailored to meet the needs of our guests who want to enjoy their favourite McCafé onsite or on the go,” says Nolin.
