On Jan. 26, Atlantans can seek out a trio of decked-out McDonald’s restaurants for a first free taste of a new sandwich inspired by one of the company’s most iconic burgers. Three McDonald’s restaurants in metro Atlanta will transform into first-of-their-kind Mac Jr. Taste Kitchens for more than eight hours on Thurs. Jan. 26 with the brand new Mac Jr. sandwich as the singular menu item being cooked and served free to every visiting customer, while supplies last.
The promotion takes place Jan. 26 from 10:30am to 7pm at three restaurants throughout metro Atlanta located at 1166 Ralph Abernathy Blvd. (West End of Atlanta near downtown), 5774 Buford Hwy NE (Doraville) and 4415 Wade Green Rd. (Kennesaw). This trio of Mac Jr. Taste Kitchens will offer the new Mac Jr. sandwich as an exclusive free offering to all guests. Customers sampling the new sandwich – offered both inside the restaurant and at drive-thru – will be encouraged to share their first taste pictures and experiences on social media using the hashtag #ATLLovesMacJr.
The Mac Jr., which will be available at all participating McDonald’s restaurants following these exclusive tasting events, packs the great taste of the iconic Big Mac into a compact, hand-held sandwich. The Mac Jr. sandwich has a single layer of 100 percent sear-sizzled beef, one slice of melty American cheese served on a sesame seed bun with crisp lettuce, minced onions, tangy pickles and iconic Big Mac sauce.
“You’ll know there’s something different when you visit these three McDonald’s restaurants, with building wraps, special Mac Jr. drive-thrus, dedicated menu boards and social media stations all heralding this first free taste of the new sandwich for Atlantans,” said David Hamilton, president of the Greater Atlanta McDonald’s Operators Association. “A whole new generation is trying out the iconic Big Mac for size, and we are delighted to share the new Mac Jr. with new and old fans alike.”
A limited additional menu will be available at the stores during the hours of the promotion. French fries and soft drinks will be offered for $2.00 small size and $2.50 medium size and a $4 All-White-Meat, 10 piece Chicken McNuggets meal will also be available. Customers who visit with children will also have an option of purchasing $2.99 Happy Meals featuring Chicken McNuggets.
But make no mistake, there’s just one product on the menu Jan. 26 from 10:30am to 7pm at these three dedicated locations.
“On Thursday Jan. 26, it will be all Mac Jr. sandwiches, all the time, for the duration of the promotional events at all of the three restaurants,” added Hamilton. “The Mac Jr. is a single-layer Big Mac intended to be easily eaten on the go, and we look forward to our tastemakers in Atlanta getting their first experiences with this new burger as part of our special taste kitchen events. We look forward to serving you!”
