Were you planning on getting your sweetheart a box of chocolates or some nice jewelry this Valentine’s Day? Well, if you live in the Tampa, Florida, area, why not consider a romantic meal at Mc Donald’s? Yes, I did just say Mc Donald’s.
Two Mc Donald’s in Tampa are filling up their reservations for Valentine’s Day, and you can expect LED candles, flowers and table clothes on every table, and waiters to be there tomorrow.
Ernesto Izquierdo, a store manager at a Dale Mabry location in Tampa, said the main thing he wants is for everyone to enjoy Valentine’s Day. He said that his guest services manager had actually come up with the Valentine’s Day idea.
“She has three children and she said it would be a sweet idea, especially for families who want to bring their kids with them on their Valentine’s Day dinner.”
He agreed to the idea and got the go-ahead from his boss.
The Mc Donald’s off Busch Blvd in Tampa is also excited to get in on the Valentine’s Day meal idea.
“I can’t wait because I just bought all the directions,” said assistant manager Taneka Cosby.
Cosby said she’s putting glittery heart shapes, flowers, and champagne glasses on every table. There will be no real champagne in them, but the glasses are still pretty to look at, right?
Her location has more than five reservations already, and Izquierdo’s location has 20 reservations so far.
“We have more reservations than we expected already, but we will make it work and keep everyone happy and smiling, because that is what we do best,” he said. “And remember this does not have to be romantic, it could be a dad taking his daughter for Valentine’s Day Dinner, and it will be special if they share it with us,” he added.
Awww…how sweet! I hope everyone who has reservations in Tampa has a great time!
