McDonald’s has been left unable to service food at a number of its restaurants around the world after they suffered an apparent IT system outage.

Customers in the UK, Australia, New Zealand and Japan have complained about issues trying to buy from the fast food giant on social media on Friday morning.

In Japan, the company apologised to customers on social media and said they may need to “wait a while” for problems to be resolved.

The PA news agency has contacted McDonald’s for comment.

In the UK, a number of customers said on social media that their local restaurants were closed although they were able to make orders through the company’s app.

A McDonald’s Australia spokesman said it was “aware of a technology outage” currently impacting stores, according to the Daily Mail.
