Shirts and shoes not required for service at Coast's Maccas

YOU will still be served shirtless or shoeless at Hervey Bay's McDonald's stores, despite a Melbourne restaurant pledging "no service" to customers with a lack of attire.

This month a McDonald's store in Oak Park, Victoria told its customers wearing no shirt or no shoes would mean no service.

That ban won't be extended to the Fraser Coast, with franchise owner Mel Manley often serving people choosing not wear a shirt or footwear.

"We do (serve them) all the time," she said.

But Ms Manley said people needed to take care and be accountable for their choices.

"Sometimes I think hygiene and health and safety - shoeless people worry me," she said.

"We have glass and crockery in our restaurant - if you have bare feet and you step on a piece of glass that's your choice.

"As long as they're willing to take responsibility for their choices then that's up to them."

Ms Manley said people should be cautious of who they were affecting.

"Just be considerate of the people you're dining around," she said.
