CosMc’s, McDonald’s New ‘Out-of-This-World’ Idea, Makes Texas Debut in Dallas-Fort Worth

McDonald’s is opening its first CosMc’s location in North Texas, focusing on beverages and quick bites. The restaurant will open from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Tuesday at 6033 Campbell Road in Dallas, marking the second location after the initial one opened in Bolingbrook, Illinois. McDonald’s plans to open nine additional stores across the North Texas and San Antonio regions, with a CosMc’s planned for southwest Fort Worth at 5341 McPherson Blvd. The beverage-focused concept CosMc’s aims to solve the mid-afternoon slump with a caffeine boost.

CosMc’s will serve a variety of flavors and drinks, including lemonades, teas, coffees, and slushies. Some popular items include the “sour cherry energy burst” cherry slush with boba and the “island pick-me-up punch” berry-flavored lemonade with dried strawberries. For coffee, the “churro cold brew frappé” is a blended cold brew topped with whipped cream and cinnamon sprinkles.

A mix of old and new McDonald’s food staples will be served at CosMc’s locations, including classic egg McMuffin’s with bacon and sausage, Oreo and M&M McFlurry’s, spicy queso and creamy avocado tomatillo sandwiches, and three different filled dough items called McPops in cookie butter, apple cinnamon, and hazelnut flavors. Other items include hash brown bites, pretzel bites, ice cream, and cookies.

The name CosMc’s relates back to prior McDonald’s marketing, with “CosMc” being an orange alien mascot who appeared in ads for McDonald’s in the late 1980s. McDonald’s is betting on its past success with nostalgic rollouts, as seen with adult Happy Meals and reintroduced Hamburglar and Grimace in April and June.

CosMc’s is a fitting name for the restaurant chain’s futurism-of-the-past aesthetic and would not be the first time McDonald’s has experimented with a new concept in North Texas.
