McDonald's opens first Gold Standard Drive-Thru in Belagavi

Westlife Development Limited, the owner of the Master Franchisee of McDonald’s restaurants in South & West India, announced its entry into the historical city of Belagavi by launching the first Gold Standard Drive-Thru (GSDT) in North-Western Karnataka and the 80th restaurant in South India.

The new McDonald’s Gold Standard Drive-Thru restaurant is strategically located at the KLE campus on the Civil Hospital Road attracting residential, educational institution and offices in the vicinity along with public in transit.

The restaurant is spaciously spread across 4500 sq ft and can accommodate 65 guests on the ground floor and 60 guests on the first floor, which includes a separate area for birthday party celebrations with seating for up to 35 guests. The restaurant has ample parking space with more than 20 dedicated car parks for our customers.

The restaurant will serve customers daily between 9 am to 11pm.

“We are excited to launch our first GSDT restaurant in the educational hub of Karnataka. Belagavi is celebrated for being the second administrative capital of the state of Karnataka. We are thrilled to offer a convenient, modern and exciting restaurant experience with delicious food and beverages to customers in the city. As pioneers of the QSR Industry in India, we are continuously committed to extending our wholesome & delectable offerings to new markets while expanding our brand. We place a strong emphasis on quality, which extends from stringent sourcing of our products, to preparing them with the utmost care and serving them at our restaurants,” said, Ranjit Paliath, VP, Business Operations, McDonald's India (West & South).

“Over the years, McDonald’s has partnered with its suppliers to build a best-in-class supply chain in India. Currently, in the South region, we are locally sourcing key ingredients such as buns, lettuce, patties, fish and poultry items. Belagavi, as a market, holds tremendous potential for growth and we look forward to building our brand as well as strengthening our relationship with the customers, suppliers & employees in this region,” Added, Paliath.

The drive-thru restaurant reflects best-in-class design and offers a range of amenities and services unique to McDonald's restaurants around the world, such as free Wi-Fi internet access, cashless service and ample parking for customers who opt to dine-in as against using the drive-thru.

The restaurant will have a team of 40 employees to provide world-class service to our customers and handle operations. McDonald’s will also impart international training to local residents and generate employment opportunities further to add to the existing 2,500 employees they have across South India.
