The Dynamic Yield acquisition was announced on Tuesday and is the latest investment by the food chain in its drive to find new ways of allowing customers to order their meals and thus drive up demand.

With this acquisition of Dynamic Yield, based in NY and Tel Aviv, McDonald's builds on its significant technology investments for growth. Additionally, the technology could gather data on the preparation times for each food item and then suggest them accordingly depending on the number of people on the order and drive-thru lines. This idea and the supporting technology had been tested at some outlets in 2018 and will now be circulated to all its' restaurants in the U.S.in 2019.

The relatively obscure startup makes its bread through helping brands across a range of different industries personalise the online shopping experience for their customers.
