Created by McDonald’s food developers and the prestigious Chefs Council, the Signature Collection will only be sale at a handful of restaurants around the UK, including the Polegate branch.

Dave Padmore, local franchisee and owner of the Polegate restaurant said: “I am delighted to bring the Signature Collection to Polegate. All three burgers are a permanent addition to the menu so it really is very special!

"It has had a great response from customers in other areas of the country so we’re anticipating it will be just as popular in Polegate. We’ve also had a fantastic reaction from our customers to the digital transformation of the restaurant at the Polegate Roundabout, and these new burgers are a great example of what can be achieved as a result.’’

The range, which are served a brioche-style bun, is available in three flavours - The Classic, The BBQ and The Spicy. They are priced at around £4.69 for a sandwich and around £6.19 for a meal.

Duncan Cruttenden, food development director at McDonald’s said: “At McDonald’s we are continually investing in and innovating with our menu to offer something for everyone. When the Chefs Council started to develop this new premium offering, we worked with a brief generated by our customers – they told us they wanted thicker beef patties and high quality ingredients, freshly prepared. We’ve crafted a range that is a truly exciting permanent addition to our menu.

“When we launched the pilot last year we sold out in several restaurants within the first few days, equally when roll-out was extended earlier this year the burger’s had a similarly positive reception. We are excited to be bringing the Signature Collection to even more of our customers with this new phase.’’
