About

McDonald's was founded in 1955 with a concentrated menu of burgers, fries and beverages. Just three years later, the quick service restaurant sold its 100 millionth hamburger and is now the most well-known fast food chain in the world. As of 2017, McDonald's had 37,241 locations worldwide. 

McDonald's operating system is based on the four core principles of quality, service, cleanliness and value.

Training

McDonald's requires all franchisees to complete a 12-18 month training program prior to being allowed to purchase restaurants. The training is done on a part-time basis. This intense program is intended to help franchisees become operational experts who are focused on providing excellent customer service every day. Training also includes:

  • Self-directed, part-time training for 20 hours per week
  • Seminars, conferences and one-on-one training sessions
  • Success based on competency
  • Operator training classes conducted by local training professionals

Support

  • Marketing
  • Award-winning advertising
  • On-going training at Hamburger University
  • Extensive network of suppliers

The site selection process is separate from the franchisee selection process. McDonald’s manages all the site evaluation, acquires the property and constructs the building. After making the decision to develop a site, McDonald’s awards the franchise to the most qualified candidate.

McDonald’s is committed to increasing the number of minority and women operators and—to the best of our knowledge—has the single largest group of minority and women operators in our industry.
