“Clearly Not Satisfied”: McDonald’s Winds Down IBM’s Drive-Thru AI Chatbot Test

“McDonald’s essentially told operators that drive-thru AI is in its future. But it is clearly not satisfied with the one it has been testing,” Jonathan Maze, editor-in-chief of Restaurant Business, wrote on X at the end of last week. 

Maze penned a note in Restaurant Business that revealed McDonald’s is winding down its two-year artificial intelligence pilot test with an IBM chatbot at more than 100 restaurants. 

Perhaps this is why McDonald’s is ending the IBM AI drive-thru ordering partnership by the end of July…

“While there have been successes to date, we feel there is an opportunity to explore voice ordering solutions more broadly,” Mason Smoot, chief restaurant officer for McDonald’s USA, wrote in a message to operators, obtained by Restaurant Business. 

Smoot said, ”After a thoughtful review, McDonald’s has decided to end our current partnership with IBM on AOT and the technology will be shut off in all restaurants currently testing it no later than July 26, 2024.”

He noted that the fast food chain will have “an informed decision on a future voice ordering solution by the end of the year.”

McDonald’s explained to Restaurant Business that its pilot test was to determine if chatbots could speed up drive-thru times: 

In December, McDonald’s announced a partnership with Google to deploy generative AI.

So, will a much wider rollout of the chatbots include Google AI technology?
