Modernization at Carpenter Rd McDonald’s

If you live on the east side of Ann Arbor or Ypsilanti chanced are that you have noticed the construction at the McDonald’s on Carpenter Rd by Meijer and Target. I know we drive by frequently and have wondered about the construction since we recall the location having been completely remodeled not that long ago.

The construction is almost complete and they are set for a grand re-opening on Tuesday, June 3. In addition they will have additional promotions on Wednesdays in June.

The press release below includes information on the construction, the Grand Re-Opening and June Celebrations:

Local restaurant features contemporary design as part of McDonald’s nationwide revamp

BRIGHTON, Mich. – May 30, 2014 – The McDonald’s restaurant located at 3811 Carpenter Rd. in Ypsilanti will reopen its doors with several contemporary changes designed to enhance the customer experience.

Highlights of the redesigned restaurant include a new exterior façade and a dual-lane drive-thru for added customer convenience. Inside, there are new lighting fixtures, restrooms and a flat screen TV, along with a deep red color scheme and wall art that reflects the personality of the brand. The seating area features comfortable booths, high-top sectionals and free Wi-Fi access throughout the restaurant.


“I am proud to be a local business owner in the Ypsilanti community,” said Toni Rodgers, who owns and operates the Ypsilanti McDonald’s. “I invite our customers and neighbors to enjoy a meal or snack in our beautifully updated restaurant.”

A grand re-opening celebration will take place at the McDonald’s from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday, June 3. The first 100 people in the lobby during the grand re-opening will receive a McCafé branded travel mug. Customers will have the opportunity to sample McDonald’s menu items, such as the Steak & Egg Burrito and McCafé Frozen Strawberry Lemonade.

Throughout the month of June, customers can enjoy various daily promotions and will have the chance to enter in a raffle to win various prizes. Each winner will be selected after 4 p.m. on Wednesday, June 3, 11, 18 and 25 for a chance to win prizes such as an iPod Nano and $100 McDonald’s Arch Card. On Monday, June 30, the McDonald’s restaurant will draw and announce the name of the winner of the grand prize—a 32″ flat screen TV. Winners of the drawings will be randomly selected and do not need to be present to receive a prize.

To commemorate the grand re-opening, the restaurant will host “Spin The Wheel Wednesdays” also throughout the month of June. The first 10 customers at the top of each hour can spin to win various McDonald’s menu items, such as a free cone, Big Mac, small McCafé Smoothie, baked pie, medium World Famous Fries and beverage, or a McDonald’s-branded T-shirt.
