McDonald's is to install touch-screen technology across its 7,000 restaurants in Europe in an attempt to make the process of ordering food fast and more convenient.
Speaking to the Financial Times, Steve Easterbrook, president of McDonald's Europe, said that the technology would improve efficiency, with transactions expected to be up to four seconds shorter per customer.
