Table service at McDonald's?

Some big name restaurants are experimenting with ideas that they hope will increase their market share.



Industry giant McDonald's says it will try out table service at a number of its franchises. The chain is also going to try a sandwich menu that allows you to customize your choice of beef or chicken with a selection of buns and toppings.



Also, consumers may soon be able to satisfy their Dunkin' Donuts craving from the comfort of their home. The chain is partnering with the on-demand service "Doordash" to test out delivery in select cities. The promise is to have your order to you in 45 minutes or less.



And say good-bye to soda on the kids menu at IHOP and Applebee's. The restaurants are eliminating the sugary drink from its choices for younger customers. They are the first sit-down restaurants to do so. However, while soda may be off the menu, parents can still order the drinks for them.
