Hard work. Passion. Dedication.

That’s what makes our franchisees. That’s what makes McDonald’s

2010 was a tough year – for our customers, our competitors and the country – but McDonald’s franchisees enjoyed continued sales growth and increased profitability.

That’s because the McDonald’s system works: it’s founded on the principle of everyone pulling together, the franchisor, franchisees, suppliers and staff all working together for their mutual benefit. It’s about mutual risk and mutual reward.

We did well because our focus on value and quality combined with sustained investment in our food, restaurants and people has continued to drive our business and ensure that, in a tough market, we outperformed the competition.

In 2011 we’ll be open more hours at more restaurants serving more customers with more convenient ways to pay and more choice on our menu. That’s what makes McDonald’s.

And we’re looking for new franchisees to help us make McDonald’s future.

  • Record sales growth year-on-year
  • The World’s favourite restaurant visited by 8 out of 10 families in Britain
  • Unique collaborative approach to franchising
  • McDonald’s unwavering commitment has led to UK franchisees entering a second 20 year term

Our successful candidates already have a proven track record in business.
