Need to Adapt to Changing Customer Behaviour: McDonald’s

As 'contactless' becomes the new normal, McDonald's says it has also introduced 100 percent Contactless Ordering across select restaurants in Delhi NCR

As India moves forward in the Unlock phases, there is a need to adapt to changing customer behaviour and align business operations with safety reassurance at the core, feels Robert Hunghanfoo, Head of CPRL, which operates McDonald’s restaurants in North and East India. Noting a gradual, but slow return to normalcy, he says customers remain cautious about stepping out.

“The pandemic has had profound consequences on people at large and the pandemic induced lockdown has severely impacted many industries with restaurants being one of the worst affected businesses. Customer behaviour has changed significantly and they have remained cautious of stepping out to avoid risk of exposure. It will still take some more time for the F&B industry to get back to its pre-Covid-19 level,” Hunghanfoo told IANSlife.
