CRESTVIEW — The Costa Enterprises’ McDonald’s restaurant on U.S. Highway 90 is the third Crestview location undergoing an extensive modernization remodel.

The renovation will be revealed at a grand re-opening, followed by a public McFamily celebration. The celebration starts 10 a.m. March 17 at 302 James Lee Blvd. W, Crestview.

Beginning from the exterior, and throughout the entire restaurant, there will be a great new look and feel with modern and sleek design, digital menu boards, digital self-ordering, free-standing kiosks, free Wi-Fi, comfortable seating areas and many more touches like added outdoor seating, activity tables and kidzpace gaming systems, according to a Costa Enterprises media release.

The self-ordering kiosks being put in all the modernized McDonald’s locations enable the restaurants to put a higher emphasis on hospitality and welcoming customers as table service and more customer service in the lobby is provided.

A space-age, indoor "Playplace" at that location will be "the only one of its kind," according to the release, and the restaurant, "like all the Costa Family restaurants continues to create a positive economic impact in the Crestview area, as the restaurant will employ approximately 80 people, with many new job opportunities anticipated.

Costa Enterprises owns and operates all three Crestview McDonald’s, and has 20 McDonald’s
restaurants in Northwest Florida. The organization has 22 years in business.
