McDonald’s


Quick service restaurant


NUMBER OF OUTLETS 1260 BFA MEMBERSHIP FULL INITIAL FRANCHISE FEE £30,000


11-59 HIGH ROAD, EAST FINCHLEY, N2 8AW


McDonald’s believe choosing the right franchisees to be part of the McDonald’s system is a key factor in its success as a brand. Franchisees come from all walks of life, but the main thing they all share is a drive for putting the customer at the heart of all they do and a passion for success. The restaurant has been franchising in the UK for 30 years and with 1,260 UK restaurants, millions of customers are served, jobs are created and opportunities provided to local people and businesses. A lot of that is down to the hard work of the franchisees: the people who believe in the brand enough to take on their own slice of it. McDonald’s is always looking for hands-on, ambitious people who are ready to make a long-term commitment to the business. It’s about placing responsibility for the day-to-day operations of the restaurants in capable hands, working collaboratively to grow together. For you, it’s a unique opportunity to take charge of a business that has behind it a brand trusted by customers, proven, sophisticated systems, and an excellent framework of support. It’s an opportunity to realise your goals, work with your team to be part of your local community at the same time as fulfi lling your ambitions.
