The new McDonald's is a trend for the future of fewer $15/hour workers. Progressives always base their policies on a static model with no consideration of dynamism.
Would you like to make that bottomless? Missouri McDonald's will roll out an all-you-can-eat FRENCH FRIES option at new 6,500 sq ft restaurant 'of the future' where kiosks will take your order
The new $1.59million Mound City restaurant will open in July
It will feature earthy tones, couches and armchairs for a 'modern look'
And kiosks will allow customers to customize burger and sandwich orders
Play space will have interactive light board tables, tabletop video games
Bottomless brunch and mimosas may be the way to a millennial's heart, but it may be bottomless fries that get them back to McDonald's tables.
A new 'McDonald's of the future' may prove that to be the case. The new 6,500 sq ft restaurant, set to open in July, will be asking if you want fries with that - as many as you want.
The $1.59m Mound City restaurant, currently under construction, will feature a lot more than a menu option sure to set drunk college students' hearts aflutter.
Owners Chris and Karri Habiger are turning their McDonald's into a luxurious one, with earthy tones, couches and armchairs and kiosks instead of people taking your order.

A new Mound City, Missouri McDonald's will offer an all-you-can-eat french fries option on the menu
But bottomless fries will be just one of many new features at the $1.59m restaurant slated to open this July
'Today's customers seek a comfortable and inviting atmosphere,' Chris Habiger told the St Joseph News-Press.
'So we're committed to providing a modern look and feel to this restaurant.'
That also means giving customers the power of customization.
Habiger said the kiosks will make it easier for people to go through the 'hundreds of different choices to build the burgers of your dreams', as well as their chicken sandwiches and even dessert.
But Habiger, who owns six additional McDonald's locations, said the kiosks won't be replacing jobs and that the company instead plans to hire 85 new employees in the upcoming months.
To add to the casual dining experience, Habiger said at this McDonald's the food will be brought to you.
Kiosks will make it easier than ever before for people to customize their burger and sandwiches orders

And although bottomless fries may be the millennial dream, the St Joseph location will also feature plenty for the kids.
The restaurant's new play place will be outfitted with interactive light board tables and tabletop video games.
And for the kids who can still have fun without technology, there will also be a multi-level jungle gym complete with a slide.
The idea of bottomless fries is hardly news. The Red Robin chain recently celebrated 20 years of offering all-you-can-eat steak fries.

But the move has cemented what appears to be McDonald's embrace of classic menu items rather than trying to satisfy the health-conscious customer.
Just this week the chain announced more than 14,000 franchises across the country had begun phasing out the Premium McWraps, a low-calorie alternative to the Big Macs and McNuggets.
McDonald's has no doubt been inspired by the recent success of it's all-day breakfast menu, which helped to boost the chain's lagging sales.
There soon may be a future where McDonald's customers not only get their hashbrowns at any hour of the day - but as many fries as they can put away.
