Grand opening draws crowd for 52 weeks of free breakfast biscuits
Stanton Enterprise opened the new ultra-modern Mount Holly McDonald’s on schedule on Dec. 18, 2019, overcoming rain delays with a lot of extra work by staff members and contractors, who were attending to last-minute details right up until the first customers arrived.
An early morning ribbon cutting ceremony, conducted jointly by the Montcross Area Chamber and Gaston Regional Chamber, preceded a 10 a.m. grand opening at which customers lined up to claim a limited number of offers for a breakfast biscuit weekly for a year.
The former Mount Holly McDonald’s building was demolished three months ago clearing the way for construction on the same site of the new restaurant featuring the latest in design and technology for McDonald’s.
Among the new features are a bright, open dining area with murals, ordering kiosks and table service for customers. A double-lane will speed up drive-through service. There’s a new Play Place for children, and gleaming new equipment featuring the latest technology in the food preparation area.
Stanton Enterprise President Jeff Stanton thanked customers, staff members, Mount Holly city officials and contractors for their support. Mount Holly Mayor Bryan Hough complimented everyone involved for building the new the McDonald’s so quickly and so well. Members of the Stuart Cramer High School Band played the National Anthem as Mount Holly firemen raised the flag in front of the restaurant.
Stanton Enterprise, which is headquartered in Mount Holly, also owns McDonald’s in Belmont and Mountain Island.
Members of the Stuart Cramer High School Band participated in the grand opening.
