The reading

A new McDonald's restaurant that will soon open in the USA will offer all-you-can-eat French fries. The new store in St. Joseph, Missouri, is set to open in July. The company has called it the restaurant "of the future" because of the many features it will have. In addition to bottomless fries, the new location will have couches, armchairs and a large space for children to play in. Customers will also be able to sit at their table and order food from the waiting staff. There will also be a self-service kiosk where customers can personalise their orders by selecting the toppings or fillings they want. The restaurant owner said: "There really are hundreds of different choices to build the burger of your dreams."

The addition of all-you-can-eat fries to the menu is just one of many recent changes at McDonald's. New CEO Steve Easterbrook took over as boss last year and has been trying many new things since then. His job is to get the company to make more profit. Some of the changes include an all-day breakfast menu, touch-screen ordering and taking certain items off the menu. People have mixed views about McDonald's offering all-you-can-eat fries. Health campaigners say it will lead to a further rise in the levels of obesity. They say McDonald's should be offering healthier food. Many of the restaurant's customers say endless fries are a great idea. One said she couldn't wait and will be going to McDonald's more often.
