CALIFORNIA, USA — By 2032, guests at McDonald's won't be filling up their sodas in the dining area anymore. And that's not a bold prediction for the future, it's actually a plan set by the company themselves.

According to McDonald's USA, the company is phasing out self-service beverage stations in their dining rooms by 2032. It'll be happening across the U.S.

Officials with McDonald's USA said the move is meant to create a consistent order experience for customers and crews, whether that be through the app, kiosk, drive-thru or in-restaurant. 

In other words, it'll eventually be an end to filling your cup on your own; it'll be the job that staff handle.
