McDonald's unveils a Texas test restaurant with drive-thru food conveyor belt
Armed, masked suspect takes cash register from McDonald’s drive-thru
Philadelphia police are searching for a suspect who made an early-morning getaway with a McDonald’s cash register.
McDonald’s on Thursday launched a test restaurant focused on on-the-go and delivery orders that includes a drive-thru food conveyor belt.
The franchisee-operated test restaurant is located near Fort Worth, Texas. It is "considerably smaller than a traditional McDonald’s restaurant in the U.S." due to it being "geared toward customers who are planning to dine at home or on the go," the fast-food chain said in a blog post.

McDonald’s said the restaurant has a separate "order ahead lane" in its drive-thru that involves a conveyor belt giving customers the food and drinks they ordered via app. The special lane uses "technology that allows the restaurant team to begin preparing customers’ orders when they’re near the restaurant," according to the blog post.
