McDonald’s plans to open its beverage concept “CosMc’s” this summer in Fort Worth.

According to a Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation filing, the 1,275-square-foot restaurant will include a drive-thru at its location on McPherson Boulevard. With a delivery date of June 21, the project bears an estimated construction cost of $921,000.

The CosMc’s menu features dozens of slushes and frappes, iced teas and lemonades, and coffee brews. But unlike McDonald’s, it offers no burgers and fries. Instead, customers may choose from a few breakfast sandwiches, snack bites, cookies and brownies, several flavors of soft-serve, and the normal array of sodas.

The Dallas Morning News reported that CosMc’s opened its first store in Illinois in December 2023 and planned to open 10 pilot locations in North Texas by the end of this year. It is not the first time, though, that McDonald’s has opened such trial concepts in the Dallas-Fort Worth area.

In February, The Dallas Express reported that the company planned to open its second “on-the-go” location in Fort Worth. That project is a 1,927-square-foot drive-thru and pick-up operation expected to open around the end of August, marking the second time in just over a year that McDonald’s has chosen North Texas for a test site for its “on-the-go” stores.

Those locations cater to mobile-app customers who may collect their orders through drive-thrus or from conveyor belts inside the restaurants where no dine-in space is available. “On-the-go” locations are also smaller than the company’s traditional restaurants and include pick-up rooms for couriers. Curbside pick-up is available for delivery drivers and customers.

McDonald’s announced in December that it plans to open its 50,000th location by 2027.
