We’re always looking for hands-on, ambitious people who are ready to make a long-term commitment to our business.
We opened the doors of our first UK McDonald’s restaurant in 1974. Now, in over 1,250 UK restaurants, we serve millions of customers, create jobs and provide opportunities to local people and businesses. A lot of that is down to the hard work of our franchisees: the people who believe in our brand enough to take on their own slice of it.
As a franchisee, you’ll need to make a significant up-front financial investment, which means having at least £110,000 in unencumbered funds. You’ll also be ready to lead from the front and work within our framework to give yourself the greatest chance of success.
A franchise at McDonald’s is an appealing investment, but it’s also a big ask. We look for dedicated individuals who are willing to work hard, and we have a rigorous selection process to ensure we choose the right people. If you’re up to the challenge, the rewards can be worth it – the average restaurant has a cash flow[*] of between £100,000 and £300,000.
The commitment isn’t all on your side though. We’re a leading global business and we offer world-class support, training and development to our franchisees. We also make sure you have a supply chain to be proud of, and give you the benefit of marketing and branding that’s among the most recognised on the planet.
