McDonald's Canada will open the first-ever standalone McCafé outlet in a Canadian airport at Montreal Pierre-Elliot-Trudeau International Airport this summer.
The fast-food chain, which opened the first-ever standalone McCafé store at Union Station in Toronto in December 2015, said the airport unit will feature self-ordering kiosks to meet increasing customer demand for on-the-go coffee.
“We are excited to be expanding our footprint to meet our guest's growing appetite for our Premium Roast Coffee beyond their daily rituals. This new standalone McCafé at the Montreal Pierre-Elliot-Trudeau International Airport is a milestone in the evolution of the McCafé brand in Québec,” said Michèle Boudria, President and CEO, McDonald's Canada.
Standalone McCafé sites enable the brand to expand into high density urban locations due to their smaller store format and offer a ‘more complete café menu’, according to McDonald’s Canada.
The US fast-food giant launched its first quick-service restaurants in Canada in 1967 and now operates approximately 1,400 outlets across the country.
In addition to McCafé units and standalone stores in Toronto, McCafé also operates a retail distribution channel across select grocery stores, launched in September 2022. McCafé’s Premium Roast coffee is also available on board WestJet flights.
