Ravenna – McDonald’s at 418 West Main Street in Ravenna held their grand opening last Friday as they débuted their new state-of-the- art eco-friendly facility. Owners Chuck and Mary Galloway eagerly showed us the new facility and highlighted some of its amenities such as the new dual drive thru, low-energy LED recessed lighting in the dining room, new energy star-rated equipment will use 20-30% less electric and gas than the previous equipment and the earth tone décor that is relaxing and has a comfortable, homey feel to it. “I’m so proud of this beautiful new building. When I made the commitment to rebuild, I had my staff members, regular and new customers alike, as well as the entire community in mind. I knew that it had to be special and something that everyone was proud to call ‘his or her’ McDonald’s,” said Chuck Galloway, McDonald’s owner and operator.
Local and county government officials, city and township representatives along with chamber members and members from the business community were on hand for the ribbon-cutting ceremony. Mayor Joseph Bica Jr., along with owner Chuck Galloway, did the honors of cutting the ribbon officially announcing that they were open for business. After the ribbon-cutting ceremony, the community leaders were served cake and coffee to celebrate the event.
The previous McDonalds building was demolished in late May to make way for the new eco-friendly store. During the construction phase of the facility the employees were shifted to Galloway’s other stores and remained employed thru the entire construction period. The existing employees of the store are now training 35 new team members to complete the staffing of the new store. The store currently has 71 team members meeting customer needs.
Hours of operation at 418 West Main Street McDonalds are Mon –Thurs 5:30 am -11 pm, Fri. 5:30 am – midnight, Sat. 5:30 am -11pm and Sundays 6am -11pm.
