It was its traditional hamburger first. It appears that McDonald's is preparing to implement yet another significant alteration.

Back in 2023, McDonald's revealed intentions to implement a new cooking method to provide more "perfectly melted cheese" and new toasted buns that are "softer" and "pillowy" than earlier versions. The onions were added to the burger meat on the grill, as opposed to being scattered over the cooked patties, which is believed to have added extra "caramelized flavor" to the redesigned burgers.

But, that may not be the only change coming to McDonald's around the world...

McDonald's is allegedly planning to get rid of self-serve soda fountain devices in dining rooms all around the United States. Illinois and a few other western states have already started the transition process, though it looks like it will be a protracted one that could take up to ten years.

Here is a Statement sent out from McDonald's via The Insider

"McDonald's will be transitioning away from self-serve beverage stations in dining rooms across the U.S. by 2032," McDonald's said in a statement. " This change is intended to create a consistent experience for both customers and crew across all ordering points, whether that's McDelivery, the app, kiosk, drive-thru or in-restaurant."

Self-serve soda fountains let customers of fast food restaurants restock their beverages several times. Self-serve beverage stations have already begun to be removed.

What could it look like?

Customers will need to request refills at the counter rather than having endless refills available to them. It is said that taking down the soda machines will improve food safety, deter theft, and reduce the number of dine-in patrons.
